Board member Bryan Rounds suggested some alternatives to Stewart's development on the disputed plot.
"Personally, I'd like to see them work out a deal with Potter's Diner, for the existing Stewart's," Rounds said. "But we have hoops we have to jump through, according to procedure. This buys you all some time, to put pressure in the proper places."
Rounds was apparently speaking of the more rigorous environmental review necessary for rezoning land in a state-designated historic district.
Monday, the Warrensburg Town Board had substantially filled out the required "long-form" state Environmental Quality Review evaluation for the re-zoning.
But residents opposing the rezoning weren't daunted as of this week, as their petitions had gathered about 350 signatures.
