GREAT NEWS! OWNER OF WESTCHESTER GREENHOUSE FARMS WANTS TO PRESERVE PROPERTY, NOT DEVELOP IT!
Release Date: October 08, 2007

Great news! About 7 years ago the owner of Westchester Greenhouse Farms advised the town that he was planning to sell his farm to a developer. The farm is located at the corner of West Hartsdale Ave and Secor Road. It’s a Greenburgh landmark – a spectacular property that enhances the quality of life for many – especially residents of Poets Corner.

I met with Joe Chiocchi, the owner of the farm today, and received some great news. He has changed his mind. He wants to preserve the property and protect the land as a farm. His children are interested in running the farm in the future. Mr. Chiocchi is currently in court to stop an old development contract. I always objected to the proposal to develop this property – development of this parcel of land would have changed the character of the community. To say I’m delighted is an understatement!

How can you help? Petitions are being circulated to protect the property. You can sign a petition at the farm (hundreds signed the petition today—the first day the petitions were circulated) or you can e mail me a brief note stating that you support the preservation of the farm –a unique community asset. My e mail is pfeiner@greenburghny.com.

The farm on Secor and West Hartsdale Ave is one of the town’s great assets. Let’s make sure it is preserved for many years to come.
