“An example of this type of arrangement is the Pine Bush Senior Living project at 20 New Karner Road, near Route 20. It has been approved as a planned unit development, known as a PUD, that would rezone almost 40 acres of land as open space; that land would ultimately be managed by the Pine Bush. Developer Timothy Cassidy of Pine Bush Senior Living LLC said on June 28 that the project is on track to break ground by January 2019.” https://savethepinebush.org/news-2018_08-09-commission/
