City Announces Nov. 10 Hearing on Cappelli LeCount Place Project

Written By: Robert Cox

The Journal News is reporting that Louis Cappelli submitted its final environmental impact statement to the city for its LeCount Place Project, a development of stores, offices, a hotel and luxury residences that will be located between Huguenot Street, Anderson Street, LeCount Place and North Avenue.


There will be a public hearing on Nov. 10th.

“Parking and traffic are the main concerns we have at this point,” City Manager Charles Strome III said. “We’re evaluating their plans and having our consultants take a look at them. Right now we want to see what the public has to say.”

Cappelli plans to begin construction on LeCount Place in the spring of 2009 and complete work in 2011.

I checked the City web site and could not find a copy of the environmental impact study on the city web site. I’ve emailed the City Manager asking whether he intends to upload the document to the city web site. If not, I’ve asked him to email me a copy so I can upload it here.

UPDATE: Chuck emails that the document has been up on the City web site since October 24th. My bad. I have such a hard time navigating the city web site. I sure hope they fix it someday.
