Schenectady County - The Schenectady Metroplex, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed K-Mart Plaza Redevelopment will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant, RD Management LLC, to redevelop an existing commercial retail plaza situated on 13.87 acres. The applicant proposes to demolish the existing 100,116 square foot former K-Mart facility and the existing 27,624 square foot former grocery store. The proposed re-development consists of a discount store of approximately 134,742 square feet; approximately 36,000 square feet of additional commercial space immediately adjacent to the discount store; and an approximately 3,000 square foot pad for a commercial use to be located in the parking field. The existing parking lots will be reconstructed, restriped and landscaped; there will be on-site utility improvements, most notably storm water facilities. Each use will be serviced by public water and sewer. The Project is located in a Commercial Zoning District and within the Town Center Overlay District.
