It is my policy to notify neighbors and the community of proposed developments. The Town recently received a special permit application for a new 115-unit Assisted Living Facility at 202 West Hartsdale Avenue, P.O. Hartsdale. The proposal involves the redevelopment of the site, which exists as a former swim club, to an Assisted Facility use. The project requires the following land-use board approvals: special permit (Town Board), site plan (Town Board, with referral to the Planning Board), steep slope permit (Planning Board), and area variances (Zoning Board of Appeals). The applicant previously appeared before the Town Board at a work session on November 13, 2018, which can be viewed here: http://greenburghny.swagit.com/play/11132018-733 Some of the concerns raised by Town Board members at that time included pedestrian connectivity (the need for a sidewalk on West Hartsdale Ave to Central Ave), the need for an affordability component, general traffic concerns, and questions regarding the view of the proposed building from surrounding areas.
On April 2, 2019, the applicant held a community meeting at Solomon Schechter school to present the project to residents.
Presently the proposal is in review with Town staff, Westchester County Planning Board, Hartsdale Fire Department, NYSDOT and an independent traffic consultant. The Town Board, Planning Board and Zoning Board meetings will all include public hearings.
The plans and applications are available at the link below, see TB 19-21 Hartsdale Assisted Living Facility. Hard copies of these materials are available to be viewed at the Department of Community Development and Conservation, 2nd floor at Town Hall.
We will keep residents informed as the review of this application proceeds. If you would like to be notified of all meetings concerning the proposal please advise.
