Melanie Lekocevic is reporting for Capital Region Independent Media the developer of the South River Street Development project in Coxsackie is expected to submit a new site plan for the project by April 11. Work on the multi-million-dollar development was stopped March 27 after the village board issued a stop-work order because the building permit had expired and various components of the project "...were not in compliance with the village code and/or the planning board approved site plan,” according to a statement from the board. Among the issues cited is that the height of the hotel building does not conform with the original site plan. Mayor Mark Evans read a statement at the village board's April 4 organizational meeting outlining how the village will proceed. He read, “The village board is committed to working with our counsel and we are slowly piecing together a timeline and understanding of events and approvals and oversight of the Downtown Hotel/Event Center Project. ...Once a new site plan is submitted for review and a complete list of issues to be addressed is compiled we are committed to holding a public forum...” Evans said. “We will review any mistakes that were made, safeguards to be put in place, review and understand the issues that need to be addressed and our attorney can review the proper legal path forward.” The Newbury will be a 40-room boutique hotel located on South River Street in downtown Coxsackie. Renovation of the long-vacant building, along with construction of the event center behind it, is the first phase of a multi-year construction project expected to cost just over $10 million.
