Senior housing proposed on church sites

For the past 15 years, Anthony Deisenroth has lived next door to Durand United Church of Christ, but now he may be getting new neighbors. “They sent a flyer around, basically explaining kind of what they were going to do,” said Deisenroth. Those flyers came from Providence Housing, which works closely with the Diocese of Rochester. They’re looking to build affordable senior housing on the church’s land, as well as the land St. Salome’s Church is on. “Housing is going to be facing Culver Road, and this is going to be a parking lot. This is a parking lot now, so it really doesn’t seem much different to me,” Deisenroth said. The plan would be expanding on already existing senior living across the street at St. Salome’s Apartments. “The waiting list just for that campus alone is 145 residents,” said Dave Seeley, Irondequoit Town Supervisor.
