Hearing scheduled for June 10th on proposed supermarket zoning amendment
Release Date: May 14, 2009
PUBLIC HEARING WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10th GREENBURGH TOWN HALL
ZONING CHANGE THAT WOULD AUTHORIZE SUPERMARKET ON 119
The Greenburgh Town Board will be holding a public hearing on a proposed amendment to the town zoning ordinance on Wednesday, June 10th at 7:30 PM. This is a continuation of a hearing that was held last night. The hearing will be held at Greenburgh Town Hall. If the zone change is approved by the Town Board, a developer (White Hickory) proposes to construct a 75,000 square foot supermarket at 600 White Plains Road (in back of the Sheraton Hotel, off of 119). They have advised the Board that Stop & Shop is interested in signing a lease.
In addition, the applicant would like to build 50,000 square feet of office space, approximately 15,000 square feet of general retail use and about 8,600 square feet of other free standing commercial space, which would most likely be used as a bank and/or restaurant space.
The applicant suggests that a high end supermarket would service the needs of the community. They also have stated that a supermarket would provide convenience shopping for area office workers. They have advised the Town Board that potential retail uses could include a pharmacy and a bank. They believe that the property is a good location since it is located on 119, near state highways. On the other hand, some immediate neighbors have asked questions about traffic.
Before any approvals can be considered a change in the zoning laws must be approved. The purpose of this public hearing before the Town Board is to solicit your feedback. Do you approve of the proposed amendment to the zoning law…would you support a supermarket…do you have any concerns that the Town Board should consider before any approvals are granted?
The entire Town Board (Sonja Brown, Diana Juettner, Kevin Morgan, Francis Sheehan & I) welcome your participation. If you cannot attend the hearing but want to have your comments considered – please e mail email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Town Clerk Judith Beville will include any written comments in the formal minutes.
