Kaplowitz voted to fund this. He is for this monstrosity. Instead of working to have it in a more appropriate spot he is for it. Anyone who objects to this project is a fool to vote for Kaplowitz again. He doesn't deserve New Castles
support. Just another poll who speaks from both sides of his mouth. View Comment
Summitt Greenfield will do whatever it wants because our T.B. will and has caved to every demand that Summitt Greenfield and Whole Foods have made.
This will be no different. The Planning Board will give good, well informed advice and the T. B. will ignore it and do what they want, which is to say what S.G. wants. It is hopeless. View Comment
The auditorium was not "donated"to the town, S.G. is not tearing it down. They, S, G., are paying nothing to do the restoration that it sorely needs. Yet another gimmick by greenie. Greenis sold out the town, with the support of the entire T.B.
As far as the T.B. acting unilaterally, you are certainly correct. That is what they do and that is what they have done again here. View Comment
No one is paying attention to the environment. This Disney like development will be a disaster. The must have entrance on Roaring Brook Rd. is an accident waiting to happen and the pathetic school board has allowed it to happen. They along with the town board have given away this town's soul to Whole Foods. There is no way that this makes financial sense. It never did.
Greenie is running around touting this as another of his wins. We got a paltry sum from the developers and they continue to have their taxes refunded.
What a lousy deal for the entire town. View Comment
No surprise. This is by far not the first fine for them. Not only are they overpriced they cheat you too. Horrible choice for CC. What a mess Greenie, Susan Carpenter et al have wrought on our town. View Comment
Katz is the only member of the board who uses her head, does her homework and maintains her integrity. She was correct to vote no. The others have voted to approve a huge retail development that will be detrimental to the entire town. No matter how much "some" kneel at the alter of Whole Foods , this will prove to be wrong for the town.
There is no way to mitigate the traffic, it will wind up costing us more in taxes and services, not less and it will hurt the downtown hamlet.
Just watch how Rob continues to destroy this town.
Rob has shown himself to be clueless but Jason and Elise are simply idiotic for letting this happen. They have zero integrity. I never had any hopes for Brodsky. View Comment
If the Conifer people will not act collaboratively with the town to find a better spot then the town should engage a lawyer with experience in this area to represent the best interests of the town. From what I have heard lawyer Phillips is ready to give the extension as a matter of course. The town has always been behind the eight ball because we have not had expert council. As in the CC fiasco. View Comment
Just think about how dangerous that area is now, will be 100 times worse when the shopping mall is built. Not to mention the seriously dangerous entrance that will be directly across from the high school entrance.
You are right about Greenstein's lack of vision. He has none. View Comment
Not logic, facts. You will see, they will make a killing. And they are crap builders. You will see that too. You argue like Greenie. Could it be ???
The stupid idea to bring retail to CC was for the inside of the cupola building to repurpose it, not for 120,000 sq. ft. of new building. Summitt Greenfield NEVER PLANNED TO REPURPOSE THAT BUILDING. IT WAS ALWAYS THEIR PLAN TO BUILD AS MUCH NEW AS THEY COULD. IT WAS A WAITING GAME FOR THEM AND THEY GOT IT ALL.
Summitt Greenfield REFUSED to eliminate that dangerous entrance across from the high school. As I said, an accident waiting to happen,but you do not care. Hey, why should you, the school board and the town board do not care either. A mess for sure. View Comment
And I am NO fan of Whole Foods, I think it is overpriced hype and do not shop at any of them and since I have learned that the owner is a Libertarian who actively works against the Affordable Care Act and other policies I believe in. I will NEVER set foot in the mans store. These things matter to me, perhaps not to you. View Comment
i did not write a Whole Foods in downtown Chappaqua, I wrote a Deciccos.
There used to be a Gristedes in downtown Chappaqua where the Rite Aid is now. If there had been planning we could have kept that space for a market. The then board refused to do that.
There was a proposal to bring Deciccos to the Hakim property, which is a blight now. Carpenter nixed it.
Also if there had been proper planning we could have had a market where the Walgreens is now.
The only good bagels in town are at the Village Market. Whatever you buy at the new Whole Foods will not bring the town money, even Greenie in a rare honest moment acknowledged that. And you will still be going to Armonk for the gym. Another Greenie failure for the town.
Deciccos is a terrific store, 10 minutes away and obviously not too far. Furthermore it is in DOWNTOWN ARMONK. We could have had one in downtown Chappaqua but for Susan Carpenter's and the TB's poor
Retail is a tough business and that is why there are empty stores in all the
surrounding towns,bringing more retail spaces will not help anyone but Summitt Greenfield.
Sorry, but you are mistaken in the benefits this CC development will bring the town. View Comment
