Future home of Stewart's

The former Time Warner Cable building at 250 Ridge St. in Glens Falls is seen. Stewart's Shops has bought the property and seeks to rezone the adjacent property at 258 Ridge and 260 Ridge. The plan is to combine the lots and build a bigger store with gas pumps to replace the current store across the street. The Common Council has scheduled a meeting for June 20 at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the rezoning. 

GLENS FALLS — The Common Council will hold a public workshop on Wednesday to discuss the proposal by Stewart’s Shops to construct a new store with gasoline pumps on Ridge Street.

The meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. in council chambers.

Stewart’s wants to build a new store across the street from its current location. The company is under contract to buy the former Time Warner Cable building at 250 Ridge St., as well as the accountant’s office next door at 258 Ridge St. and the parking lot next door at 260 Ridge. The three parcels would be combined into a roughly 1 1/2-acre lot at the corner of Graves and Ridge streets.

For the project to go forward, Stewart’s needs to change the zoning of the accountant’s office and parking lot from single-family residential to general commercial, which is what the surrounding properties are.

The Common Council on Tuesday postponed action on the rezoning. Neighbors expressed concerns about increase traffic along Graves Street.
