Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman cast doubt on a developer’s plan to build a 7-Eleven at a traffic circle in Riverside this week, according to the Southampton Press.

Some residents want the town to institute a moratorium to stop the proposed development, which also includes a gas station. Schneiderman said its unnecessary because zoning doesn’t allow it anyway.

“I don’t need a moratorium to prevent something that can’t be done,” Schneiderman said.

The Flanders, Riverside and Northampton Community Association requested the moratorium. It wants a more pedestrian-friendly development. According to the Southampton Press, there are already three 7-Eleven stores within walking distance of the site, at 9 and 11 Flanders Road, which was formerly home to a gas station.

Representatives for the developer, 9-11 Flanders LLC, said that a gas station and convenience store is the most economically viable option for the site. The Zoning Board of Appeals could still approve the project.
