Not only is this so insignificant but they can't even get the grammar correct.

"Plans were just unveiled for the store that will be build on Culver Avenue".

It's "built" not "build". Holy crap the ignorance and this is your news agency! Lol

I live on Allen St a couple of houses away from the proposed site. Not only is this VERY SIGNiFICANT for neighbors on my street, but on surrounding streets, too. We are concerned about increased traffic on our residential streets, noise pollution, and environmental problems that this massive 24 pump gas station will bring. This is not to mention other concerns like tearing down a home on our street to bring the station. And our councilman, Marino, is too busy to even represent us at the planning meeting this coming Wed to help explore these concerns!

Don't raise my taxes and give me more services but please let's keep a crapy looking auto shop instead of economic development.
What would you rather see on that current eye sore?

What's really sad is you, like the typical Utican views a convenience store as economic development. Man you people are suckers.
No, I just view the current site as an eye sore and rather see a Stewarts. Also, opened the discussion for other ideas for the site. You didn't understand my statement. I thought we had friends from Pennsylvania.

However, I do consider this economic development;

-- Harbor Point. Thanks to the Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council being named a top performer in the state's economic development competition, the region was awarded $82.4 million in funding and tax incentives. That package includes $5 million to conduct environmental studies and clean up at the Utica harbor site, where development is happening. Nearby, Moe's and Hoopla have opened, built anew on a site that was vacant only a short time when Friendly's closed.
-- Bagg's Square. Business growth since revitalization includes The Tailor and the Cook, Gerber's, Utica Coffee Roasters, Master Pizza, Davis Media and the MVCC thINcubator. There's more coming.
-- Other economic development. The long-vacant one-time brownfield known as the Bossert site has sprouted new growth with the addition of United Auto Supply. More to come. Bass Pro Shop is open at Riverside Center and is just one of two Bass shops in the state. And after eight years of wondering, the HSBC building was sold and will be developed.
-- Downtown college presence. Adirondack Bank building owner Tom Clark purchased the neighboring Harza Building and last year signed a 10-year lease for Utica College to operate its online division there. Meanwhile, the Mohawk Valley Community College Foundation will operate a student business incubator at Bagg's Square, aided by a grant from The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties. Nearby is USC, The Business College, a staple in the city for more than a century.
-- Professional hockey. The phenomenal growth of Utica College hockey at the Utica Memorial Auditorium was beyond anyone's wildest imagination. Then along comes the perfect complement the American Hockey League's Utica Comets. Improvements to the Aud spread through the neighborhood Tony and Frank Cristiano are nearing completion of their Pizza AUDelicious sports bar in the former Cosmopolitan Center. And soon, a new parking lot on Whitesboro Street will accommodate visitors to the Aud area.

I have been to many Stewarts all over NYS. They are all excellent. The staff are owners of the stores not just employees and are usually very nice and friendly. Besides that, they have the best Dairy products I have ever used. The real kicker here is that the Utica gasoline establishment has prevented Stewarts from entering Utica for years. They know well that Stewarts uses 2-3 cents a gallon cheaper gas to get people into the store. In case you don't know, they get the gas for Stewarts from the same distributors as ALL other gas stations in the area and Stewarts has newer stores and brand new gas tanks and pumps.

This is a very nice planned addition to the area. With the new Parkway Pizza and a Stewarts, users of the park across the street and locals will have an option in East Utica to get quick convenience items and foods instead of driving to North Utica or South Utica for the incidentals. The Sunoco on the corner, is total joke, 2 parking spots, beer, cigarettes and lottery tickets is about it. The Dairy Dell on the Frankfort line is also horribly dated, overpriced and needs a total redo. I for one am very happy about this. If the new Stewarts could somehow make a deal with Hemstroughts to bring halfmoons and other cakes to the east end it would be amazing.

Stop complaining, if you know someone that goes to Stewarts just ask them how nice the stores are and how nice the workers are. Never heard anyone ever hate on a Stewarts. PS. I don't work for Stewarts.

Lay off the phony tax-junk crack. Listen to you sitting in a mudpuddle of corruption, taxes and liberal progressive sewage. You think suddenly 30 years of NYS BS and phony tax incentives that drove you to #1 Most Tax and death state is going to suddenly work?

This bullshyt nano done is going into the toilet that's where it is and where it will stay. The nano is a bust with a classroom for bullshitters and end users for widow dressing. You paid for that.

FAA just got their ass kicked in court and slapped down on requiring ANYTHING for private drones so there goes Griffis Drones and besides your schools produce mostly morons who expect a job but can't pick up a soldering pencil or create a real prototype.

Any money this liberal tax junk DOES generate before the tenants split for reality after they suck you dry are the same few friends and family Democrats and the tit-for-tat Republicans. Your politics is infested with parasite people just like your endless layers of public safety and other workers. The "New New York" huh? See you in another 15 years morons. We've all SEEN how this works out for you. You sell people their futures and you take a cut. "Wait till AFTER the elections! You'll see the great emerald nano city smart people we can eat alive, micromanage in a police state and tax-to-death!"

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck You!
