Of the $200,000, $143,000 is earmarked for improvements to the intersection to enhance pedestrian access to this auto-centric site. Amanda Purcell reports about that today in HudsonValley360: "Stewart's Shops map out improvements to corner of Green and Fairview." The "crude map drawn by Creighton Manning Engineers" referenced in the article but not reproduced there is undoubtedly this one, which accompanied the host community benefit agreement offer submitted by Stewart's Shops in May. The map shows the proposed improvements to the intersection with the existing Stewart's in place.
The $57,000 remaining after intersection improvements have been made is expected to fund "the retention of a planner for the review, mediation and implementation of an updated comprehensive plan or zoning code."
