The new proposal retains a Five Guys restaurant, and includes a Mavis Tire location, an urgent care facility, two more sites for restaurants.
After an environmental review process that swallowed up four years, New Paltz Town Planning Board members began to review the site plan for the CVS project last month. Board members pressed for various concessions, but met resistance which has become the standard refrain from consultants hired to push the project forward.
The votes mean no in-depth environmental impact statement is to be prepared for more detailed analysis of issues such as traffic and the clear-cutting of the premises.
Residents continue to lobby for a stringent review of the proposed CVS/Five Guys development near the Thruway on Rt. 299.
The project includes a CVS drug store, as well as a Five Guys Burgers and Fries, to be placed on the 5.6-acre parcel bounded by the Thruway, Route 299 and North Putt Corners Road, with a third potential pad site to be developed at a later date.
The project would transform the lot nestled between the Thruway and North Putt Corners Road, across the street from Freihofer’s Bakery Outlet. Preparing this long, narrow and sloped site for a 13,225 square-foot CVS and a 2,600-square-foot Five Guys restaurant is estimated to involve removing hundreds of trees and carting in 1,600 truckloads of fill to level off the property.
