Old Endicott Friendly is prepared for demolition by Byrne Dairy
A building that housed a Friendly restaurant in Endicott is being emptied before being demolished to make way for a Byrne Dairy convenience store.
Workers were removing items from the once popular restaurant on East Main Street and Loder Avenue on Wednesday.
The village planning council has scheduled a special meeting on Thursday to hold a public hearing on issues related to the store project.
The session will deal with the review of the site plan as well as special use and aquifer permit applications.
The hearing is scheduled for Thursday at 5 p.m. at the municipal building in the village.
Endicott Friendly’s restaurant closed without notice in April 2019. The property has been inactive since.
Byrne Dairy representatives failed to convince state Department of Transportation officials to allow customers to turn left onto East Main Street from the proposed store.
The company is moving forward with the project despite the turn restriction.
Endicott Mayor Linda Jackson said Byrne Dairy should be able to proceed with the development once the planning board acts after the public hearing.
Jackson said she was not aware of any other issues that could affect the project.
The mayor said she expects Byrne to act quickly once the necessary permits are approved.
