Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) - Demolition and redevelopment could be in store for the Binghamton Price Chopper.

The plan involves demolishing the building closest to Glenwood Avenue.

Another structure would be built across from it, which would become the grocery store.

The current Price Chopper building would remain standing.

New and old tenants would move there.

The plan is still going through a review process by the city's planning commission.

The move won't cost taxpayers a dime.

"There's no city funding. They are consulting with us and we are a necessary review body, and we support the redevelopment however we don't have involvement financially with the site," said Patrick Day, city planner.

A public hearing will be held at 5:15 p.m. on June 7th at City Hall.

The planning commission is a 9 member-body made up of city volunteers.

They will decide whether to approve the move.
