Mount Kisco's Planning Board is expected to vote at tonight's meeting on whether to give site plan approval for the expansion of the Mt. Kisco Coach Diner, according to the agenda, which lists a "final action."
The diner, which is located at 252 E. Main St., has spent more than three years before various boards in Mount Kisco for its proposal, which consists of roughly 1,250 square feet in new space, 13 new parking spots and the merger of the former Paul's Power site to the south with that of the diner's existing parcel. The later change would be for some of the diner's added usage.
The building, which has a stone base, has been proposed to get a new facade, columns and a front porch, the diner's architect told Patch this past fall.
Since the proposal was first reviewed by the village several years ago, Mt. Kisco Coach Diner has gotten a series of approvals. In January 2010, the Village Board of Trustees approved rezoning to give the Paul's site the same zone as the diner site's existing one, which is Central Business District (CB-2). Since then, the proposal has been before the Planning Board, with the applicant having to respond to its feedback. More recently, this past fall, the diner got approvals from the Zoning Board of Appeals for a variance and approval from the Architectural Review Board for its design.
