Plan commissioners to review Walgreens’ plans

BATAVIA – Batavia plan commissioners are set to review plans for a proposed Walgreens store in downtown Batavia.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. today at the Batavia Government Center, 100 N. Island Ave. Batavia Enterprises wants to move Walgreens from its 12,650-square-foot store at 138 W. Wilson St. in the Batavia Plaza into a 15,000-square-foot building with a drive-thru just east of East China Inn in the shopping center.

Batavia Enterprises owns Batavia Plaza. The plans for the store have elicited debate because the store would be set back about 70 feet from Wilson Street. The city’s zoning code requires a front building setback to be 10 feet or less.

In a letter to Batavia planning and zoning officer Joel Strassman, Batavia Enterprises president Dan Stellato said the property has poor soil and as a result, the new building would have to be built on concrete caissons or piers.

“The additional cost of this process is presently under investigation,” Stellato said in the May 14 letter.
