Big Y would spend $22 million on new Middletown store, create 150 jobs

A traffic study, drainage and landscaping plans and other documents have been filed with the land use office to support a proposed $22 million, 51,892-square-foot Big Y World Class Market to be built in the south end of the city. The request is to fill 983 square feet of wetlands and mitigate a 6,079 square-foot wetland area for the commercial development. It would be built on the former Frontier Communications and adjoining lot near the Durham line. An Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency public hearing on the matter is set for Sept. 7. If inland wetlands were to approve the plan, a special zoning exception would be considered by the Planning and Zoning Commission, according to Director of Land Use Marek Kozikowski.
