Members of the Yorktown Smart Growth are when they will present their concerns about the Costco application.
The presentation, titled "Is Costco Right for Our Town?," will be held at 7:30 p.m. at The Mohansic Grill (formerly the 19th Hole), located at the Mohansic Golf Course in Yorktown.
Jonathan Nettelfield, member of Yorktown Smart Growth, said people with different points of view – whether pro or con – are invited to attend.
During the meeting members will discuss the impact of the 151,092-square-foot store on:
• Traffic on Route 202 and adjacent roads
• Local merchants and retailers
• Flooding and other environmental issues
• The Comprehensive Plan for Yorktown’s future
They will also discuss the draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) prepared by the Costco developer.
The Costco DEIS was accepted as complete by the Planning Board on Sept. 10. To read the document, click here. The public hearing will be held on Oct. 15 at the Nutrition Center room in the Yorktown Community and Cultural Center.
