TOWN BOARD AND PLANNING BOARD TO HAVE JOINT MEETING ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT
Release Date: November 27, 2017

The Greenburgh Town Board and Planning Board periodically hold joint meetings. We’re planning our next Joint meeting for this Wednesday at Greenburgh Town Hall at 8:00 PM.   Your thoughts on planning and economic development initiatives are always welcome and appreciated.

 

I would also like to discuss with the Planning Board the importance of neighboring communities coordinating development reviews with each other.  Last year, for example, the town of Greenburgh was asked by a developer to consider approving a large multi family housing development on the border of Ardsley (1 Lawrence).   The developer, after significant opposition, withdrew the application. That development, if it had been approved, would have impacted residents of the village of Ardsley and generated significant traffic and hardships to the school district.  There are properties in Ardsley that are located near the Greenburgh border that also could be developed—impacting unincorporated Greenburgh residents.  Why should one community get the taxes and the surrounding community get the traffic with no benefits?    Both Ardsley & Greenburgh should have similar policies regarding developments that impact the schools, traffic.   Greenburgh shares borders with Ardsley, Scarsdale, Hastings, Irvington, Tarrytown, Mount Pleasant, Elmsford & Yonkers.   Ridge Hill in Yonkers and the Austin Ave development in Yonkers is other example. Yonkers got the taxes. Greenburgh’s Jackson Ave and surrounding streets gets traffic and no tax revenues from this large development.

Joint Planning in my opinion makes sense for all neighboring communities.

 

This meeting is an open meeting.
