Hamburg, N.Y. (WKBW) - Sabres Forward Patrick Kaleta has plans to used the former Wal-Mart property for his charity. Hamburg Town leaders voted for another project to move in there.
Back in February, the town board voted to change the zoning laws to allow Worldwide Protective Products to set up shop. That company is now in Orchard Park and makes safety gloves, sleeves and arm protection devices.
Kaleta and his Helping Individuals Smile Foundation had plans to put hockey ice rinks at the site. That project would not need zoning changes. Kaleta's attorney said the Hamburg Town Board failed to give a 10-day notice to the public before voting on the change.
In response to the controversy, the board decided to revisit the issue. They will hold a public meeting on the issue July 15th. A revote will then take place.
