North Castle Parking
The North Castle Planning Board approved a plan by Mike Fareri to add 98 parking spaces at the building he owns at 99 Business Park Drive at its Aug. 6 meeting.

The North Castle Planning Board unanimously approved a plan to expand the parking lot at 99 Business Park Drive on Aug. 6.

Mike Fareri sought the extra parking spaces at the building he owns to attract a new business or businesses. The building, which is located in a Light Planned Light Industrial District, houses The Gym, but has unused portions.

There are currently 327 parking spaces on the 7.3 acre property.

Fareri said on Aug. 6 he did not know whom he would be renting the 24,000 square feet of unoccupied space in the front of the building.

At a recent meeting of the Architectural Review Board, 14 different potential scenarios for the building were approved.

Planning Board Chairman Robert Greene said, prior to the vote to allow the expansion of the parking lot, “This is a simple application.”

CVS Public Hearing
Also during the Aug. 6 meeting, the planning board voted unanimously to schedule a public hearing for Sept. 10 on the controversial proposal to convert the building that formerly housed an A & P supermarket at 450 Main St. in the Armonk Shopping Center to a CVS.

Eden Enterprises LLC is before the planning board for a site plan approval.

Greene did not accept any public comments on the plan on Aug. 6 and said the public would be welcome to comment next month.
The Town Board okayed a special permit for the CVS project in July.
