One More Shot For Clifton Park Price Chopper

Written by Staff Report
CLIFTON PARK— The development of a proposed shopping center anchored by Price Chopper will attempt another proposal after the initial plans were denied by Clifton Park officials. The Planning Board voted 3-2 and sent the Town Board a rejection for the request for a planned development district that would have included a 60,000-square-foot Price Chopper and 25,000 additional square feet for retail space. “We’re being told go back to the drawing board and see what you can do to comply,” said John Nigro, principal of Nigro Cos. He made it clear a revised application will eventually be presented to the town Planning Board. “We have no interest, and neither does Price Chopper, in abandoning our effort,” Nigro said. The redesigned plans are to combine residential and commercial space and will conform to the “hamlet mixed-use” zoning of the land on the corner of Routes 146 and 146A that will have a different layout that might include a smaller grocery store. The site is located in a largely rural area where new homes have been built in recent years with more to come in the future. This has resulted in numerous people living in close proximity to the site opposing the proposal even though the design includes a buffer zone with landscaping a lot of green space.
