Freightway Steering Committee Hosts Public Workshop #3

FreightwayWorkshop1Approximately 40 interested residents and other stakeholders attended the third public workshop held by the Freightway Steering Committee on Monday night. The workshop, held at the Scarsdale Teen Center, was part of a months-long study being conducted by the Freightway Steering Committee to provide a community-based vision for possible redevelopment of the Freightway site that enhances the Village Center while meeting local needs. The workshop included a presentation by BFJ Planning, consultants to the Committee, of preliminary redevelopment concepts that incorporated community comments received to date.

The presentation was followed by a breakout session during Freightway3which participants discussed with representatives from BFJ Planning various topics of consideration for the study such as parking issues, contextual design matters, integration of the site with the Village Center and environmentally sustainable development. The Committee, has now held five public working sessions, three public workshops, conducted an online survey and held a number of focus groups to assist with gathering information from key stakeholders. The Committee plans to issue a report of its study to the Village Board of Trustees during the first quarter of 2018. Last night's meeting was recorded and will be available for viewing on the Scarsdale Public TV web site (www.scarsdalepublictv.com), as are the first two public workshops.

The next meeting of the Committee is a working session scheduled for 7:00 pm, December 5, 2017 at Village Hall. The public is invited to attend and listen to the Committee discussion.
