WESTHAB HEARING TO BE POSTPONED TILL JUNE 11--BUILDING TO BE REDESIGNED...
Release Date: May 21, 2008
The proposed WESTHAB workforce housing proposal was scheduled for a public hearing for May 28th. Yesterday, at our work session, some residents made some constructive suggestions re: design of the building. WESTHAB, which hopes to build 35 affordable housing units (down from the original 42) for working people, has agreed to re-design the building and will be having a dialogue with Fulton Park neighbors in advance of the hearing. The hearing will be rescheduled for June 11th at the Greenburgh Town Board meeting. This will be the 4th new design for the building.
Thanks to you and the Town Board for meeting with us yesterday afternoon, and for accommodating our schedule. In light of our meeting, and the comments received from the Board and members of the public, I am requesting on behalf of Westhab that the public hearing be adjourned from May 28 to the Town Board's next meeting on June 11. This would allow Westhab and its architects more time to revisit the design of the building and to try to address the comments of the Board and those members of the community who were present at the meeting. It would also allow Westhab the opportunity to meet with the community in advance of the public hearing to discuss any revisions. We would also present any further revisions to the Board at a work session prior to June 11.
Since the beginning of the process, Westhab has tried to be a good neighbor, and has tried, at great expense, to be responsive to the comments and concerns raised by the Town Board, the Planning Board and the community. We look forward to working with you and the Town Board toward the conclusion of the process for this very important project for the Town of Greenburgh.
