CHAPPAQUA, N.Y.-- Chappaqua residents came out at a recent New Castle Town Board meeting to express their opposition to the Chappaqua Crossing project .
According to and article in The Examiner News, residents spoke out against a rezone request for the project, fearing it would increase traffic and hurt local businesses.
Summit/Greenfied, the developer of Chappaqua Crossing, has proposed 120,000 additional square feet of retail, including a supermarket between 36,000 and 60,000 square feet at the former Reader's Digest site. The town board approved 111 condominium units in 2011.
“Before you approve a change in zoning that will bring more traffic to this area of Chappaqua, consider the enormous changes you are bringing to the character of this part of town and the lives of all the residents and everyone who has or will have a child at the high school,” said Roaring Brook Road resident Maryhelen Hendricks.
The hearing was adjourned until Sept. 3 to allow Summit/Greenfield time to submit its stormwater study.
