Prattsville Commons project moving forward
Michael Ryan is reporting in The Daily Mail the long-delayed Prattsville Commons project is moving forward, and developers hope to break ground this spring on the convenience store and gas station. The facility will offer gasoline and diesel fuel, and the store will sell standard items, according to Prattsville Commons partner Al Creazzo. Creazzo appeared at a recent Prattsville Planning Board meeting and presented a proposed subdivision of the property being used for the project, located on the west side of the Route 23 bridge over Schoharie Creek, just past Fairlawn Cemetery. The subdivision was approved, but blueprints must now be okayed by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection. The project has been on hold for several years, dating back to 2010 when the town gave conditional environmental approvals. Creazzo said he and his partners, Sam and Vince Nativo, will spend an estimated $1 million on the project, connecting to the town’s sewer system, tapping a private well. “We’re looking to invest in the community and have a successful venture. This has been in the works for a while,” he said. Creazzo expects Prattsville Commons to open by Labor Day. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
