HYDE PARK, N.Y. -- An idea from a developer to build a replacement for an empty Hyde Park building has caused debate among locals, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Residents are arguing over whether to keep the town's "historic character" in tact, or look ahead economically, said the report.

Developers want to rehabilitate what used to be Grand Union Plaza at the Route 9 and Pine Woods Road intersection, and nearby vacant properties, said the newspaper.

The first plan is to put a Mavis Discount Tire where Molloy’s Pharmacy was, an idea supported by the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce and a member of the town planning board, said the Poughkeepsie Journal.

At a meeting Aug. 17, most residents opposed the plans over concerns about noise and the town's "historic character," said the report.
