Editor’s Note: In response to an email from NCNOW asking for confirmation that—as Supervisor Rob Greenstein stated in last night’s TB meeting—next Tuesday, May 20, 2014, the Town Board will hold three meetings it has sought to combine before, Town Administrator Jill Shapiro returned the following email: “A joint Town Board/Planning Board meeting will be held from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Assembly Room of Town Hall, televised [and streamed live]. We expect the Applicant [Summit Greenfield] to present its proposed revised PDCP [Preliminary Development Concept Plan], to have that plan referred [officially to the Planning Board and the County Planning Department for comment] and to have a presentation by Michael Galante [the town’s F.P. Clark consulting traffic engineer] on traffic.
Shapiro did not respond to the question of how the Planning Board’s scheduled public hearing on the Homeland cell tower proposed for Armonk Road will be affected by this joint meeting on the same night—Tuesday, May 20.
[UPDATE Mon. May 13: 10:00 p.m.: Shapiro states that the public hearing for Homeland will take place at 9:30 p.m., following the Chappaqua Crossing meeting.]
Galante has twice canceled appearances—one before the previous Town Board in fall of 2013, and one scheduled for April 22—to respond to questions on traffic associated with the grocery-retail proposal. Summit Greenfield will present its latest revised plan for the proposal. See In new site plan SG asks that limit on number of 1,500 to 5,000 s.f. stores be removed, NCNOW.org, 4/12/14.
