DELMAR: Vista hearing turns sour

T.R. Laz of Krumkill Road, who also spoke during the public hearing, said the Vista Technology Park being proposed is the size of Disneyworld.

"It's a huge complex," said Laz. "I am more concerned about future problems like traffic safety impact, ground water, altering the terrain, water and sewer."

Vista Park is located on 450 acres of land in Bethlehem and New Scotland. Developers are hoping to build 1.4 million square feet of space on 150 acres that will house a mix of 80 percent technology-related enterprises and 20 percent retail. The project is expected to create thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in tax benefits to the school district and the town. Phase one of the planned Vista Park will develop 240,000 square feet.

Because the final master plan for Vista deviates from the original draft with the location of the proposed roundabout, the public hearing has been extended.

The planning board will review the change before the next town board meeting on Wednesday, June 27.""
