GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Greenburgh Town Board voted late Wednesday to put the property at Frank's Nursery on Dobbs Ferry Road up for auction on November 13.
The town acquired the land in a 2011 tax foreclosure and received an offer from Game On 365, a sports-training facility, which proposed to buy it for $1.7 million with the promise of paying another $1.3 million over 13 years.
Greenburgh officials announced in May 2014 they had agreed to that deal and critics in the community claimed the proposed agreement with Game On didn’t ensure payment of the $1.3 million balance. Others said the town should have considered an alleged $3.5 million cash offer from House of Sports of Ardsley.
"We anticipate that the sale will take place on November 13 and will start publicizing the auction immediately," Town supervisor Paul Feiner said following the Wednesday vote. "Our auctioneer, Harold Bordwin suggested that the Town Board hold the auction in November rather than October – providing his company with more time to effectively market the property."
The approved Bid Deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 5 and the approved Auction Date is on or about Thursday, Nov. 13.
The anticipated date for the Town to pass a resolution approving the sale is Nov. 19.
