The driveway from Tom Miller Road could later become a town road that would connect with Plaza Boulevard to the south.
Plans for a 15,000-square-foot Lenny’s store in the Eaglefeather subdivision on Tom Miller Road were approved by the Planning Board last June.
But that site required waiver of covenants put in place by CVPH Medical Center, the former owner of the property, that said the land could only be used for medical-related businesses.
CVPH and Champlain Pain and Spine Management agreed to the waiver, but the owners of Mountain View Pediatrics didn’t. They cited concerns about increased traffic and possible delays in the case of emergency transport of patients to the hospital.
The McCarthys abandoned that plan due to the delay caused in seeking a solution to the traffic issue.
Town and county officials have supported the project from the beginning, Todd said.
“Everybody we have encountered and worked with has been really good to us,” he said.
Town Supervisor Bernie Bassett welcomed the McCarthys’ continued commitment to the area despite last year’s issues.
“It’s another offering that fills a unique niche for the community,” he said. “The design fits well with marketing and our location on the Adirondack Coast.”
Bassett said the town would love to see additional businesses on the property and creation of the town road, also.
“That would be great for development and traffic flow, as well,” he said.
