Re: “Whole Foods hearing set

Cera- If your statement to the effect that, "The traffic in that area will not get any worse. People use that as a way to get to what's already there" is correct then Whole Foods and the Danieles better throw in the towel right now.

The fact is that their success depends on generating a significant increase in traffic in the area of their store. Said traffic will include cars utilizing the north and south bound exits off 590, and those driving along Monroe Avenue from both the east and west. Even to the extent that some of that traffic already exists in the form of shoppers using 590 and Monroe Ave. to drive to Wegmans but who will instead drive to Whole foods, their diversion will cause existing traffic to concentrate in a new and more restricted geographic area than is the case today.

And certainly Whole Foods' success will require them to attract far more shoppers then they can glean from Wegmans. It will require attracting thousands of new shoppers (and thousands of new vehicles) to the area, an area already rife with traffic bottlenecks today. The idea that a couple of parking lot entrances and exits, and a change in traffic light patterns can in any way mitigate the negative impact of Whole Foods traffic is a pipe dream.
