Comp Plan Passes 4-0-1
It was goodby night as Board members said their thank yous at the last regular meeting of the term. The hot topic was the Comprehensive Plan "tweaked " to the benefit of a particular landowner and by the way, contributor to the Desoo campaign. The potential benefit to the landowner would only occur if the Planning Board somehow allowed a high density commercial project to be approved in the space that would then damage the surrounding neighborhoods on Bloomingrove Drive by forcing traffic from the potential mall onto their streets.
Of course the Board also saw none of this impact on the neighbors and voted to approve a Negative SEQR declaration. News 13's Dan Bazille covered the story which was the lead at the 11PM newscast. You can listen to the debate here on our Pipeline Radio.
