Webster next-door neighbors distressed with prepared greenhouse that would grow tomatoes


Individuals in a Webster community are distressed over prepare for a tomato-growing greenhouse. There are initial strategies to develop that in Webster at the intersection of Salt and State roads.
The next-door neighbor we spoke with says he doesn’t wish to handle the sound and individuals in the location. And they likewise say the town guaranteed absolutely nothing would ever be constructed there, but the town manager told us that’s not real.

The tomato farm would be built by Intergrow Greenhouses. Webster town authorities tell us the farm will resemble a greenhouse Intergrow runs in Albion. The one in Webster will run right behind Jason Jugovic’s yard.

“We left here in the rural area to be remote,” says Jugovic. “We also feel that we were informed when we purchased the house that it was green space, or open space.”

Green space is publicly owned land that the town assures to never build on. We went to Webster Town Supervisor Ron Nesbitt for an explanation.

“It’s not open space,” states Nesbitt. “We acquired the development rights from the farmer.”

He adds, “The farmer retained the ownership to sell the land as long as he offered it for agricultural uses.”

We found the confusion easy to understand. An online map marks the area as green space. Manager Nesbitt stated it’s wrong and revealed us the town’s agreement with the land’s owner providing the town advancement rights, but not ownership– indicating it can’t be a green space. Chris Horvatits: “These individuals clearly do not desire this to go there. Why do you feel comfortable going ahead with the plan?”

Nesbitt: “I feel comfortable because it’s farming.”

“It’s going to develop 150 tasks for individuals here in Webster when tasks are leaving Monroe County as quick as they can,” says Nesbitt.

“This affects our life,” says Jugovic. “Where we believed we were relocating to, that’s all altered.”

Again, the task is still just in its preparation stages right now. In fact, there’s a town planning board meeting Tuesday night at Webster Town Hall at 7 p.m. on the proposition.
