Neighbors concerned over plans to expand local restaurant damaged in fire

Local

A plan to rebuild and expand a Saratoga Springs restaurant has worried some neighbors.

Residents gathered at Saratoga Springs City Hall on Monday to hear about the future plans and voice their concerns for the proposed expansion of Lake Local.

“It doesn’t feel neighbor friendly.”

“We all like the restaurant right there. We love access to the water. No one’s opposed to building a restaurant.”

“It’s overdone. There’s too much development going on.”

Sounds from an amphitheater and visitors to a proposed inn may become a headache.

“It doesn’t waft. It ricochets.”

“They’re proposing to mitigate it, but my suggestion is that it’s probably not going to be enough.”

Representatives from the business said they want to expedite the rebuilding process. They said financial implications will come if it doesn’t reopen by next season.

The city zoning board brought up concerns with the plans for parking seeking an advisory opinion on the parking requested by Lake Local. That meeting is set for September.
