Last year, Gossips reported on Stewart's attempts to acquire and demolish a house and enlarge its store in the Village of Altamont. Stewart's plans for expansion required a change in zoning, which the Village Board refused to do in October 2017. But in December 2018, with new trustees on the board, the zoning to accommodate Stewart's expansion was passed. In October 2017, the vote was 2 in favor, 3 against; in December 2018, the vote was 3 in favor, 2 against. The Altamont Enterprise reported the story: "Village board approves rezone for Stewart's expansion."
Today, the Altamont Enterprise reports on Stewart's first appearance before the Altamont Planning Board: "Planners concerned with size and siting of Stewart's proposal." The experience may provide intimations of what's to come for us here in Hudson now that the Common Council has changed Hudson's zoning to accommodate Stewart's plans.

Huge mistake. I don't understand why Hudson is going along with this plan. "Just say no."ReplyDelete
They are a corporation just like any other corporation.ReplyDelete
They will do what they want to get what they want and as cheaply as possible.
Everything about this is wrong.
Not to worry, though, Stewart's will make that intersection all better. HA!ReplyDelete
More recently, Village of Voorheesville turned down zoning variances sought by Stewarts. TU and Altamont Enterprise have coverage.ReplyDelete
