Freightway Redevelopment: Get the Facts. Participate.
Hey, Scarsdalians, check out the developer presentations provided at the Village Board's Freightway public work session this past Wednesday!
Two developers, Avalon Bay and a team including East End Capital and LCOR, provided public presentations covering varying aspects of their proposed concepts. If you weren't there, or have additional thoughts, please take time between now and February 09, 2020, to review the proposed concepts and submit your priorities and preferences using our convenient online form, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, being sure to include your name and address, as comments without attribution will not be considered to inform next steps in the Freightway process.
The developer presentation boards are also on display in the Village Hall main lobby, where one's priorities and preferences may also be submitted.
If you're new to the discussion, or simply want to cross-check information you're receiving about the Freightway Redevelopment Process or the proposed development concepts, Mayor Samwick's recent Open Letter to the Scarsdale Community provides an excellent overview of the past, present, and future. The Freightway Document and Video Library contains a lot of relevant information, as well, and continues to be updated with relevant materials as they become available. At a minimum, be sure to also review the updated Freightway FAQ and Redevelopment Process Timeline.
It's still a long road ahead, and the outcome surely isn't a fait accompli. If you wish to help shape the outcome, participate in the conversation. The current public comment period will remain open until February 09, 2020. Please encourage friends, family, and Scarsdale colleagues to participate.
Here's a Scarsdale Official Insider Tip: You can stop-in to Starbucks on Tuesday, December 17, from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM, to chat in an informal setting about Freightway with Mayor Marc Samwick, Deputy Mayor Jane Veron, and Trustee Justin Arest.
