Goldens Bridge Hamlet Organization started this petition to Lewisboro Planning Board

We urge the Planning Board to deny the application for massive expansion of the Mercedes Benz dealership on Route 22 and insist on a plan that fits into the historic neighborhood.  An increase from 12,000 to 51,000 square feet in the size of the building and the addition of overloaded parking areas for car storage including unnecessary car stackers will sully the character of the community and further disrupt the quality of life of the families who live here.   The applicant has provided no justification for this overreaching project.  More compromise is needed; Goldens Bridge cannot support such an intrusive presence.

The Town Board impulsively rezoned 3 properties; the Zoning Board granted an unprecedented number of variances.  Codes exist to protect and guide the planning process.  Variations from those codes subvert the good intent of planned development in Lewisboro.  We have seen enough impetuous development in recent months.  Before another disruptive project is undertaken in Lewisboro, an independent planning professional needs to be engaged.  The Planning Board is our last defense.

We urge the Planning Board to deny the expansion as proposed.  A better plan for this location is needed.  We ask you to choose to protect the quality and character of our community and promote the type of business development that will draw people to live here, increase property values, and sustain town revenue over the long term.
