A 9,100-square-foot retail variety store is eyed for the former SMS Field at 109 Ovid St., across the road from the town municipal building.
Tennessee-based GBT Realty has submitted an offer to buy the land from the Bridgeport Fire District, contingent upon obtaining a use variance for the retail development in a single-family residential zone. The Seneca County Planning Board will review the use variance at its meeting Thursday. Its recommendation would then go to the town of town Zoning Board of Appeals for a final decision.
If approved by the ZBA, the company would have to submit specific site plans for town Planning Board approval.
It is not known if the proposed retail business is a national chain. Company officials did not return a telephone call seeking more information, and town Zoning and Code Enforcement Officer Dean Zettlemoyer said he’s not been given details of the proposal.
GBT Realty, which was founded in 1987, is headquartered in Brentwood, Tenn.
