The Livingston County Planning Board will consider the proposed Geneseo Town Centre proposal at its monthly meeting tonight. The board had considered the project two years ago, but that was premature for an official referral, since the General Municipal Law requires the board to have all the evidence from the SEQR process before it.
Since the Geneseo Planning Board completed the SEQR process by approving Findings last month, which included mitigations that reduced the size of the Lowe’s building and required it to face Volunteer Road, the matter is now ripe for County Planning Board action.
PDDG members Bill Lofquist and Corrin Strong have sent a memo to County Planning Board members urging the board to reject the project as not in keeping with the town or the county’s master plan and policies. The memo also takes particular aim at the access driveway opposite Morganview Drive, which they say is in violation of the Gateway District zoning, will create a major traffic problems and encourage future commercial sprawl to the east.
The memo urges the County Board to recommend that the Morganview access either be eliminated or restricted to delivery trucks and emergency vehicles. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Alice Wadsworth Strong room at the Livingston County Building.
