TOWN BOARD DISCUSSING REZONE TO ALLOW SPORTS/RECREATION ON DOBBS FERRY ROAD
Release Date: February 02, 2014

GAME ON INDOOR SPORTS FACILITY WANTS TO BUILD SPORTS FACILITY ON VACANT LAND OWNED BY GOLF RANGE ON DOBBS FERRY ROAD
Follow up meeting at 10:30 AM on February 11th

At the January 28th Greenburgh Town Board work session, members of the Town Board heard from representatives of Game On 365 regarding a petition that seeks a zone change to create recreation open space overlay district in the Town that would allow a sports facility to be built at the Dobbs Ferry GOLF Driving range. Game On 365 currently has an option to purchase the driving range property.  The golf range would continue to stay in business. The sports facility would be built on vacant land near the golf range. The proposed site development that would result from the petition is very similar to the proposal the company submitted for the Frank's Nursery property.  At the work session, there were questions regarding the application and the applicant has decided to make some modifications to their petition based on the feedback from the Town Board.   Last year three of the five members of the Town Board voted to ask the Commissioner of Planning to prepare a plan for the rezone of the Dobbs Ferry corridor for recreation uses.

After the February 11th meeting,  the Town will post the revised documents on the town website for public review.

A follow up Town Board work session meeting to discuss the proposed amended petition will be held on Tuesday February 11th at approximately 10:30 AM. Our Town Board meetings are televised on public access TV  (channel 76 (cablevision) or 35 (Verizon). In addition, our meetings are streamed live on the internet: www.greenburghny.com<http://www.greenburghny.com> and archived on the website.

You can hear the first initial discussion with Town Board on the application if you look for the archived work session meeting of January 28th on the town website.

We are continuing to show the Frank's Nursery property to potential purchasers. There is significant interest in that property from different possible purchasers -including recreation uses. We expect to sell the property in the coming months.

Please feel free to contact me anytime with your comments and thoughts.
PAUL FEINER
