Some bureaucratic twists and turns slowed the process down, but New Paltz Village Planning Board members on August 20 approved the application to build a new Stewart’s at the corner of North Chestnut Street and Henry W. Dubois Drive. According to company representative Chuck Marshall, demolition could start in as little as two weeks. New Paltz Village Planning Board members declined to require the applicant to install a traffic light, but did get the building moved closer to the road to preserve the pedestrian feel sought for this stretch. As a consequence, the owner of Tow-Rific will no longer be required to move his business; the application to relocate it to Old Kingston Road has been met with some resistance at town Planning Board meetings. In finalizing the approval, board members reviewed the landscaping plan and learned about a new fence which will be installed to the south at the request of a neighbor.
