Ten years ago, the city approved a plan for a new Byrne Dairy at the busy five-points intersection in downtown Geneva, but it never happened.
Fast forward to 2019, and Sonbyrne Sales, the Weedsport-based company that develops and operates Byrne Dairy stores, is back again with plans to replace the aging store at Castle, Main and Milton streets in 2020.
The new Byrne Dairy will feature multiple gas pumps, as well as a convenience store with prepared foods and what it describes in its application as a “full line of groceries,” including a small produce section.
The city Planning Board will get its first look at the plans — very similar to those approved in 2009 — at its Monday, Dec. 16 meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. The meeting takes place at the city’s Public Safety Building, 255 Exchange St.
