Pleasantville Changes Zoning in Old Village

We are part of The Trust Project

Residents in the Old Village section of Pleasantville don’t have to worry about any future 24-hour convenience stores.

At last Monday’s village board meeting, the village unanimously voted to change the zoning in the Old Village that would limit the hours of retail stores from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The law was in response to resident’s opposition to a potential 24-hour convenience store being built in the Old Village. The law does not impact any current establishments.

The law was passed after a public hearing brought out many residents of the Old Village to express their support for the law.

“We want to preserve the character of the Old Village,” resident Peter Allen said. “We don’t need anymore late night operations. They aren’t in character of where we live; we don’t need them. I don’t want the Old Village to become Marble Avenue.”
