CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. - Dozens of Cheektowaga residents showed up to a meeting to see what's next for a vacant, run-down lot on Union Road.
The Benderson Development Company held a meeting Wednesday night to announce plans to turn the more than 20-acre plaza into office and warehouse space.
But some residents wonder if another warehouse is really what the area needs.
"The bottom line is, to see that vacant lot every time you drive through the entrance into Cheektowaga, the entrance into West Seneca. You see this empty ugly looking lot," Town of Cheektowaga Supervisor, Mary Holtz said. "I mean we could do something. We can't force them to put businesses in there that won't come. So I mean it comes down to the economy."
The new complex will be known as Garden Village Commerce Park. The proposal will be brought to the town planning board in August.
