On November 29, 2007, the Town Board received a petition for amendments to the Zoning Code. If the Petition is granted and the requested amendments are adopted by the Town Board, White Hickory intends to construct an approximately 75,000 square foot Super Stop N SHop supermarket, approximately 50,000 square feet of office space, approximately 15,000 square feet of general retail uses, and approximately 8,600 square feet of other free-standing commercial space, which would most likely be used as a bank and/or restaurant space (the “Project”), on the property located at 600 White Plains Road (near the Sheraton Hotel on 119).

At tonights Town Board meeting the Board will formally start the review process. We will declare our intent to be lead agency for the review. We are also going to refer the petition to the Planning Board for a recommendation in accordance with our Zoning laws. Members of the community have been meeting with the applicant in recent months. A community meeting for residents of the Glenville section of town has been tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, June 4th at 7 PM in Glenville (near the Tarrytown Boarder). There will be many additional meetings with the applicant and residents in the coming months to discuss community concerns.

The problem with the big "super stop and shop"s is, IMHO, they drive the smaller grocery stores out of business. Not that I am saying the project shouldnt be approved, just a comment.
