Applications Filed to Demolish Eight More Homes

Eight more homes in Scarsdale will almost certainly be torn down. Their owners have applied to the Committee for Historic Preservation (CHP) for permission to demolish them and in recent months it seems that virtually every application is approved, or if denied, the owners appeal to the Scarsdale Board of Trustees who grant permission.
It is unclear why the CHP continues to deliberate as the current code gives them little authority to prevent demolitions.
Here's the list of applications to be considered by the CHP:
- 14 Reimer Rd. built in 1923
- 7 Meadow Rd. built in 1953
- 3 Edgewood Rd. built in 1926
- 61 Franklin Rd. built in 1962
- 35 Brookby Rd. built in 1941
- 85 Penn Rd. built in 1941
- 2 Garden Rd. built in 1870
- 1 Burgess Rd. built in 1962
The committee will also hold a "Discussion on Historic Properties and Process"
If all are approved, the total count of demolitions for 2015, year to date, will be 43. In 2014, a total of 39 homes were approved for demolition and in 2013, 31 homes went down. This year marks the most demolitions in the last six years.
Moreover, plans to construct many new homes are being considered by the BAR this month.
At their meeting on November 9, the BAR will consider plans for new homes at the following addresses:
- 16 Fenimore Road
- 110 Brewster Road
- 6 Hamilton Road
- 8 Hamilton Road
- 11 Gatehouse Road
- 153 Nelson Road
- 27 Murray Hill Road
