CHEEKTOWAGA – The town council gave a thumbs up to a trio of development projects Tuesday night at their regular board meeting.
5 Star Urgent Care will soon raze and remediate an old gas station at the northwest corner of Walden Avenue and Union Road. They will construct a 3,200 square foot building which would bring urgent care to the northern portion of Cheektowaga.
Councilmember James Rogowski says this project will “change the face of Walden and Union Road.”
“We have petitioned with the Traffic Safety Board to move the bus stop closer to the intersection for the main reason – if you ever drive that intersection – people, instead of going to the crosswalk are crossing against traffic where the bus stop is about 50 feet from the corner, and it is unsafe,” Mr. Rogowski said.
The developer has agreed to install a bench and a tree for people waiting for the bus.
Several blocks south on Union Road, Watch Me Grow Day Care Center will be adding a 1,900 square foot addition to their facility at 2550 Union Road.
“It’s great to see the expansion of the company because the company has been turning children away because they do not have enough room. This 1,900 square foot is helping the kids at Cheektowaga Central that Cheektowaga Central could not handle at their daycares,” said Mr. Rogowski.
The town council also approved a development review application for an exterior
dining area expansion at 2709 Harlem Road – Doino Pizzeria Bar & Grill. The new outdoor dining area will wrap around the northwest corner of the building.
