Crossroads 312 Website Notes 'Unavoidable Adverse Impacts'

The project calls for a hotel, retail shops and more to sit on 52 acres on Route 312 in Southeast, near exit 19 of Interstate 84.

The Southeast Town Board is in the process of reviewing the Crossroads 312 proposal, which is available here.

One of the documents viewable online is a list of "Unavoidable Adverse Impacts." A few of the items named are increased traffic and changes in certain views around town. Click here for the list in its entirety.

In June, officials posted the following message on the Town website:

"The Town Board is in the earliest stages of reviewing the preliminary DRAFT Environmental Impact Statement (pDEIS) for the Crossroads 312 Project. The proposal was discussed at the Town Board meeting last night [June 7] for the first time since 2009," the statement reads. "The Southeast Town Board is not soliciting public comments on these documents at this time but there will be ample opportunity for residents to ask questions and comment as part of the review process. As a subscriber to Town News, you will receive an e-mail like this each time a new Crossroads 312 document is added to our Web site."

Actually, those "unavoidable adverse impacts" are completely avoidable: Don't build this unnecessary project! Problem solved.

Is the construction near Dykemans part of this?

No, I don't believe so. Here's what Southeast Councilwoman Lynne Eckardt said about that property (she wrote this to the email group Brewster10509 on May 8): "There is a building going in at Dykeman's Corporate Park. This is the same property that was owned by Harold Lepler and was rezoned to allow automotive use (back when Lisi Towing wanted to move there). The Town Board recently voted to allow this project's performance bond to be paid in increments — thus the site work."
