CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – More than 100 residents came out to speak about Summit/Greenfield’s 120,000-square-foot Chappaqua Crossing grocery-retail development plan Tuesday night, and none of them voiced an opinion in favor of the development.
Two more public hearings are scheduled to take place in New Castle Town Hall:
- 1:30 p.m. on Monday, April 29
- 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30
Will an alternative resident perspective be brought to the Town Board’s microphone in either of those hearings?
Given the sample size of a public hearing in comparison to the town’s entire population, many said Tuesday's hearing made it difficult to gauge whether or not those who showed up to speak to the board represent the majority of all New Castle residents.
For this reason, several residents in Tuesday night’s public hearing suggested the town provide a referendum in the upcoming November election ballots in an effort to capture the most accurate public opinion possible.
