GreenburghTown Supervisor Paul Feiner announced that the Greenburgh Town Board held a meeting with representatives of SHORE on Tuesday and agreed, in concept, to turn over a foreclosed property that the town owns in Ardsley (770 Saw Mill River Road) to SHORE for 3 units of affordable housing. The current foreclosed building will be demolished by SHORE and a new 3 apartment complex will be built, pending Ardsley zoning approvals. The villageof Ardsleysupports this proposal. SHORE is a non profit organization. None of the 3 units built will be rented for a profit –the rents will be in the neighborhood of $400 a month for a 2 bedroom unit. The target population: those whose incomes are between $15,000 and $22,000 a year. “This is an exciting opportunity to create first class housing for low income families and to turn an eyesore (the current building) into a new jewel of Greenburgh,” said Feiner. “I’m also very grateful to Ardsley officials for their efforts to make a positive difference in the lives of others.”
Feiner said that the Town is also working with Habitat for Humanity to turn an abandoned house at Taxter Ridge (Greenburgh’s newest park) into an affordable rental for a town employee.
