Briarcliff Trustees Modify Chilmark Plans

BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. – The Village of Briarcliff Manor Board of Trustees unanimously agreed Wednesday night to approve a special use permit for the Chilmark Shopping Center.

The board continued a public hearing on the issuance of the special use permit for Connecticut-based developer Urstadt Biddle, the company that has proposed placing a 13,000 square foot CVS pharmacy in the shopping center along Pleasantville Road. The board’s consideration was limited to whether Urstadt Biddle met the required 4.5 parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of floor area, as required by village code.

Village Manager Philip Zegarelli said the board’s decision was only a small part of the discussions on the Chilmark Shopping Center.

“This is a very narrow aspect that only deals with parking and a slight adjustment to our formula,” Zegarelli said. “This is really sort of minor compared to what other boards are looking at from a zoning and planning point of view.”

The board of trustees also made a resolution stating that the special use permit would not have a large environmental impact on the area. Copies of the resolutions approved by the board during the meeting are available on the village’s website.

The Urstadt Biddle plan is now set to go in front of the village planning board at a later date.

Mayor William Vescio previously said he understood the larger scope and questions associated with the project , but said the board was only deciding on whether Urstadt Biddle met special use permit requirements.

“That’s the change this board has looked at. The rest of it, as far as we’re concerned, is all planning board issues,” Vescio said previously.
