WATERVLIET - An announcement was made Tuesday that new plans to transform St. Patrick's Church in Watervliet into a new supermarket will not include the former church's façade.

Nigro Companies says it's just not feasible to include the façade.

The main reason is because doing so would require a significant reduction in the size of the new building.

Nigro Companies says it will now move forward with plans to tear down the church and build a new Price Chopper store.
