YORKTOWN, N.Y. – A town-initiated proposed zoning change that would allow for up to 120,000 square feet of retail development at Chappaqua Crossing has received much opposition the last month, and we want to know where you stand.
The plan calls for 120,000 square feet of retail space, including a full-service grocery store between 36,000 and 66,000 square feet and smaller retail stores. The proposal specifically excludes “big box” stores and fast food restaurants.
Chappaqua Crossing owners Summit/Greenfield have said “pre-eminent grocery companies” already have expressed “strong interest” in coming to the site at the southern end of the property (read about the plan in its entirety here).
Residents and town officials alike have expressed concern the site would become a "strip mall," increase traffic to the area and create a third business hamlet within the town. Planning Board members also have questioned the need and desire for the center.
In a simple "yes" or "no" poll, tell us if you think New Castle officials should rezone the property to allow for the 120,000-square-foot retail center.
