Over the last several months there has been much discussion about a property next to the Greenburgh Nature Center and Edgemont High School’s playing fields. The owners of that property had expressed their intention to build a 37-unit condominium complex. Today the owners were informed that their parcel is zoned for single-family housing only.
The property, which is located off Central Avenue on Dromore Road, was thought to be in the Central Avenue mixed-use zone, where the only residential development permitted is multifamily housing. The Dromore Road site, which consists of approximately two and a half acres, is actually in an R-20 district, which is zoned for single family residences on minimum half-acre lots.
The Town Council understands that the Greenburgh Nature Center’s board and Edgemont residents may prefer to see the Dromore Road property not developed at all and to have it preserved instead as open space. The Town Council will continue to explore with community leaders that possibility.
