KENDALL – The Orleans County Planning Board, in its second look at the site plan for a Dollar General in Kendall, gave its support to the project this evening.

The Planning Board last month voted against the project because the application was missing a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan for how stormwater will be handled.

That plan was in the application this time, and the application was unanimously approved. The project needs a final vote by the Town of Kendall Planning Board.

The 9,100-square-foot store on Route 18 would be near the Kendall Road (Route 237) intersection, across the road from Greenwood Cemetery.

Primax Properties/Bohler Engineering MA of Albany is developer of the project. The store will have 36 parking spaces at 1873 Kendall Rd., on land currently owned by Walter Steffen.

The stormwater management plan includes a pocket wetland in the northeast portion of the site, multiple dry swales located near the perimeter of the parcel, and some storm drains.

The application was unchanged from last month, except for the stormwater drainage plan.

“Nothing has changed, there is just more detail,” said Dan Strong, a Planning Board member and code enforcement officer.

Andrew Kludt, the Kendall Planning Board chairman, said the town would like to see sidewalks leading to the store, but that isn’t part of the Dollar General application.

He praised the developer for altering the design from the typical Dollar General.

“I like that it has a barn look,” Kludt said.
