VILLAGE OF FAYETTEVILLE – The Fayetteville Planning Board spent its open-to-the-public meeting on Aug. 23 reviewing the draft scoping document for the proposed mixed-use development at 547 E. Genesee Street.
At the start of the meeting, planning board chair Jane Rice explained to those gathered in the village hall that New York’s State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) ensures adequate examination of potential environmental impacts resulting from proposed developments, such as the one outlined in the application, in such communities as Fayetteville.
The application submitted by Millstone Development Group LLC on June 28 calls for the construction of a 56,550-square-foot grocery store reputed to be a Hannaford, a 40,000-square-foot senior living facility and a 3,500-square-foot commercial building—all at the East Genesee Street site once occupied by manufacturer O’Brien & Gere.
Rice said during the Aug. 23 review in open session that she would like to see a line added to the draft scoping document’s attached map that exhibits the boundary of the proposed project.
