Town Board will open public hearing on zoning change for a grocery store at Chappaqua Crossing

On Monday, September 24, the New Castle Town Board will open a public hearing on whether to change the zoning at Chappaqua Crossing to allow for an anchor grocery store of 50,000 to 60,000 square feet as well as ancillary retail businesses of at least 5,000 square feet each.
Town Board Supervisor Susan Carpenter made clear that the proposal originated not with Chappaqua Crossing, but with the Town Board, whose members are eager to restore a grocery store to the town and to realize increased commercial tax revenues from the property.
Carpenter has stated that the Town Board hopes to flesh out the concept in greater detail before the September 24 public hearing date.
