Will Village Let Foodtown Expand?
Foodtown's lease expires in 2011. The building's owner, Constantine Serroukas, along with his attorney and architects, are currently working with the Village of Cold Spring Planning Board to accommodate the tenant's desire for expansion. Early proposals would have allowed Foodtown to expand into the current Cold Spring Post Office space, while the Post Office would move to newly-constructed facilities within the same shopping center. At the ZBA meeting on November 19, Serroukas requested variances which were denied. Local residents who live on Marion Avenue appealed to Donald MacDonald, ZBA Chairman, to give safety and environmental concerns priority. The matter is now in the hands of the Village Planning Board.
