Though preservationists bemoan the overdevelopment of Scarsdale, the construction of new, oversized homes does have a silver lining. – these new homes have contributed to an increase in Scarsdale's overall tax base – yielding higher revenues for the Village and the schools. In fact, the NYS Office of Real Property Taxes reports that the total assessed value of Scarsdale real estate has risen since last year -- which will allow an increase in the tax cap and funds for school programs and Village services.
This month, applications to demolish three more homes will be considered by the Committee for Historic Preservation on December 17th.
