TOWN BOARD MOST INTERESTED IN PROPOSAL TO RENT OUT OLD FRANKS NURSERY PROPERTY FOR PREMIER INDOOR SPORTS DOME
Earlier this summer the Town Board invited developers to submit proposals for the redevelopment of Frank’s nursery (a property we acquired due to foreclosure). We publicized the RFPs in newspapers, on the town website and even placed a sign at the property. Six potential applicants visited the property. Three submitted bids. All the bids will be posted on the town website.
There were two proposals from developers who wanted to purchase the property. The Board is most interested in a third proposal: to rent out the property for the first premier indoor sports dome in Westchester. The proposals are posted on the town website: www.greenburghny.com.
The town will receive monthly rent based on an annual amount of $260,000 a year. There will be regular annual increases each year.
The goal of Game On’s plan is to bring world class sports instruction and year round field space to residents. There will be health, wellness and physical activities for residents of all ages (including pilates, yoga, dance, cross fit and cardio). Adult sport leagues, coaching clinics for Greenburgh Recreation, AYSO and WYSL, senior programs, youth rec nights for 5 - 12 year olds and tutoring classes will also be offered.
I think this concept could be exciting—we’re adding recreation to the town at no cost to the taxpayers. Good for quality of life—good for property values, in my opinion.
Feel free to call me if you have any questions. The Town Board hopes to make a final decision before the end of the year. Your feedback is always welcome.
