DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. The village planning board will hold a public hearing Thursday night at 7 p.m. in Dobbs Ferry Village Hall to hear its official list of comments and questions for the projects developers.
The board compiled a list of comments and questions that will eventually be given to the developers, who will respond to the concerns in a Final Draft Environmental Impact Statement.
Everyone should understand that the applicant has to answer each one of these comments or questions, said Ed Plotkin, Chairman of the Dobbs Ferry Planning Board, at a recent public hearing.
The Rivertowns Square project would redevelop an existing 17.7-acre commercial property bordered by Stanley Avenue, Lawrence Street, Livingston Avenue and Danforth Avenue. The proposed project would include a multi-story residential building with over 220 units and a parking garage, a 107 room hotel, a 55,000 square foot supermarket, nearly 30,000 square feet of various retail space in three buildings and approximately 6,400 square feet of retail/restaurant space in two buildings.
The development would replace current office buildings, parking and loading areas that take up approximately 200,000 square feet.
Comments and questions can still be submitted by concerned residents in writing to village administrator Marcus Serrano or to the office of mayor Hartley Connett.
The public and interested parties are encouraged to submit questions and comments regarding relevant aspects of the proposal, including potential impacts and mitigation, which will be accepted up to (close of business) on Feb. 23, 2012, Connett said in a message to residents.
In its regular meeting, the board will hold a public hearing for the legalization of a minor subdivision approval of two lots on Sherman Avenue. The board will also discuss a request to continue the combined application for the amended site plan approval for Mercy College.
