The Dryden Planning Board reviewed a $16 million affordable housing proposal by Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services (INHS) on May 23.

The plan aims to transform a vacant corner in Varna into a 59-unit housing complex at Dryden and Freese Roads.


The project includes 41 one-bedroom and 12 two-bedroom apartments in three multi-family buildings and six single-family homes.

Five of the single-family homes will face Dryden Road, while one will be on Freese Road. The site will also feature a pocket park, three recreational areas, stormwater facilities, and parking for 83 vehicles.
