Matt Siemionko started this petition to Town of Poughkeepsie board

The imminent closing of the K-Mart where the 44/55 arterial splits will leave a large, unused commercial development area largely empty. As members of the greater Poughkeepsie community, we see this as an opportunity for a large, big-box type establishment like a Wal-Mart or a CostCo (both of which do not currently exist in the community) to thrive, creating new job opportunities, revitalizing the area, and generating economic development with retail establishments that this community is in desperate need of. We the undersigned ask that the Town Board proactively engage with corporate entities that do not have a current foothold in the local economy to encourage them to redevelop the area to revitalize an area of the town adjacent to the city of Poughkeepsie to ensure economic vibrancy.
