We have invited representatives of TARGET to again address members of the
association and spokespersons of other Yonkers neighborhood organizations
about their proposed retail development on Stew Leonards Drive near Austin
Avenue and Prior Place. Some questions were raised at our last meeting that
we hope to be better addressed on May 12th.
Several formidable concessions have been stated by the Morris Brothers
? They have rescinded their request for a Planned Multiuse Development
(PMD) zone change.
? They expressed that they will instead seek a change in the language of
the site “overlay” to allow retail. This will still give us the opportunity,
through our City Council, to have a say in what restrictions we want for
the site development.
? The scale of the building has been reduced and the site location has
been shifted further away from present residential homes.
After the initial presentation by TARGET, there will be a question and answer
session until all questions are answered. The meeting time has been moved
up to 7:00pm to give extra time for the Q&A. We just ask that you sign up
for questions or comments (no longer than 2minutes) when you arrive at the
meeting and ask only one question at a time. THANK YOU for the huge
turnout at the March meeting and hope to see you all again on May 12th
