CHEEKTOWAGA – The Town of Cheektowaga Planning Board recently approved two separate projects – one for Elaine’s Flower Shoppe and the other for Derrick Corporation – both contingent based on the board’s recommendations.

Elaine’s Flower Shoppe is attempting to build a 600-square-foot addition to its flower shop at 5100 Transit Road.  The addition will be used for additional work space and a 400-square-foot cooler.  The project was approved by planning board members contingent on the approval of landscaping and drainage plans, and the green light by the town’s Environmental Advisory Committee.

Derrick Corporation has submitted plans to build a 40,000-square-foot manufacturing addition onto its existing building near the old K-mart site on Walden Avenue.  The company also wants to build a 12,300-square-foot manufacturing addition onto the existing building along the north side of Duke Road.  The project calls for the demolition of a 3,600-square-foot existing building.

The project was approved contingent on the approval of a site plan by the Environmental Advisory Committee and required engineering and traffic studies.

The next Planning Board Meeting will be held on March 14th.  The Environmental Advisory Committee will meet on March 27th.
