Residents split on Clay warehouse proposal

About 200 residents, elected officials and business owners came together at Liverpool High School to share their comments and questions about a proposed 3,783,000-square-foot warehouse in the town of Clay at a Sept. 30 joint public hearing of the Clay Town Board and Clay Planning Board.

Last month, the Dallas-based real estate developer Trammell Crow Co. announced its plan to build the $280 million distribution facility, which would employ as many as 1,000 people with an annual payroll of $30 million. The 111-acre site is currently home to the Liverpool Golf & Country Club.

The developer is requesting a zone change from REC-1 Recreational District to 1-1 Industrial 1 District.
Town officials and representatives for the developer did not name the prospective tenant for the “speculative development project,” though several speakers at the public hearing speculated it is online retail giant Amazon.
