LEWISTON – The proposed Ellicott Development project at Center and North Eighth Street and its potential traffic impact be the topic of a public hearing at 6 p.m. Monday in the Lewiston Village Hall, 145 N. Fourth St.
The $14 million plan for a plaza on 4.1 acres, bordered by Center, North Eight and Onondaga streets has received a ground swell of negative feedback from area residents. The owner William Paladino said he had been working on the project since 2013 and had “no idea” how tough it would be to get completed.
Traffic is a major concern raised by residents.
The proposal would put three, two-story buildings on the site and include a restaurant, a coffee shop, a drug store, a drive-through, five to six boutique-style shops and 13 apartments.
The public hearing on Monday will review a traffic study prepared by SRF Associates of Rochester.
