Back to the drawing board for Dollar Tree plan in Penn Yan

The proposed Dollar Tree development for the former Super Duper store on Lake Street was sent back to the drawing board by the Penn Yan Planning Board Feb. 5. The board unanimously agreed to table action on the plan so the developer can address concerns that have been brought up through the review process.

Looking through the site plans, Planning Board Chairman Cliff Orr told Dave Adams, representing AJH Designs in Elmira, the board would like to see an image of what the store’s facade will look like.

Adams said the exterior work would include removing structures that had been added to the back of the building, scraping and painting the exterior, adding a new roof, a new entrance at the center of the store’s front, and a new overhead door on the north side for deliveries. He also said the asphalt shingle canopy will remain.

Orr advised Adams to review the village’s recently adopted comprehensive plan which could be guidance for the building’s appearance.

Board member Jean D’Abbracci told Adams that village residents and officials had worked hard to come up with the comprehensive plan, and the community wants visitors to see how much thought has gone into appearances.
