Wegmans Paves Way For New Retail Space



Plans additional 15,000 sq ft facility on Mt. Read Blvd.

New Liquor Store Might Be Planned

STORY

SCATS ~~ I think Greece needs another liquor store. It will help us forget how badly we get reamed twice a year when we pay our taxes ;)

the article is a bit misleading as regards "rumors" Art Piers the Wegman's spokeman clearly said that they might put a liquor store there. The article is correct in that Piers said it was not definite but I would not call it a rumor if he said it at the town board meeting, If Meaghan deemed to attend town board meeetings she might have known that instead of taking things straight from government and corporate flacks as she does here. She might have even talked to (heaven) some of the residents who attended the meeting and given some attention to their views,

What's the issue if it is a liquor store? Yes, I know there are some who don't such an establishment within so many yards of a school. But really, it's not like these students don't go to Ridgemont, or Latta/ Long Pond where there is a liquor store near a Wegmans or to any other sites in Greece where there is a liquor store. Do we really believe that if we keep the liquor stores "hidden" the kids won't be contaminated?

To 6:57PM ~~ I'm all for putting a liquor store as close as possible to District Offices and our infamous school-of-choice, Odyssey. It will make it extra handy for those who REALLY "need" a drink after dealing with Greece Central's dysfunction.

Attention all: Is a PILOT program in the works? Heads up school district management.

To 6:29AM ~~ Expecting GCSD to police PILOT programs is like letting the wolf tend to the hen house. Unless it has a major impact on them, they don't care.

Doesn't the legal issue have to do with members of the Wegman family owning liquor stores while others own the grocery stores. I think there was something about it in the paper a few weeks ago.

GCSD is always impacted with PILOT programs. They, unlike the town, cannot redistribute the "in lieu of taxes" part to other taxpayers and cover their costs. They need to fight all of these PILOT schemes in the town of Greece.

To 1:42PM ~~ Of course they are always impacted, but the impact varies substantially. Do you see them fighting the smaller programs? I don't.
