The work session will focus on the site plan application and subdivision application for the project, which has moved through various stages of development the past two years. Recent meetings have centered on environmental studies and other concerns.
The Rivertowns Square project is planned for a parcel of land between the Saw Mill River Parkway and Lawrence Street on the Ardsley-Dobbs Ferry border and would include an apartment building with approximately 200 units, a gourmet supermarket, retail and restaurant businesses and a Sundance Cinemas complex with eight theaters.
Residents of Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry have voiced concerns regarding traffic, school enrollment, over building in the small communities and other issues. The villages hopes the project will bring tax revenues, jobs and economic growth.
The work session will be in the board room of Village Hall, 112 Main St.
