The year opens with applications to demolish many more homes in the Village of Scarsdale. Next week, on Tuesday January 10, the Board of Trustees will meet in executive session to rule on a appeal to knock down an English cottage style home at 12 Dolma Road. The case puts Scarsdale's preservation laws to the test as the Committee for Historic Preservation denied the request and an appeal was held before the Scarsdale Board of Trustees on December 13.
The Village brought in outside counsel Terry Rice to represent them and there was also testimony from Andrew Dolkhart, a professor from Columbia University who surveyed Scarsdale in 2014 and identified potential homes and districts for historic preservation. The study identified Dolma Road as a potential historic district and the home itself was designed by renowned architect Lewis Bowman and built by Walter Collette.
After receiving the study, the Village did not move forward with strengthening Scarsdale's historic preservation laws which are reactive rather than pro-active and only come into play when there is a request to destroy more than 51% of a home.
The Committee for Historic Preservation will also meet on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. in Village Hall to consider applications to demolish the following six homes:
- 133 Johnson Road built in 1920
- 119 Carthage Road built in 1954
- 23 Innes Road built in 1940
- 53 Old Orchard Lane built in 1927
- 175 Nelson Road built in 1909
- 19 Tisdale Road built in 1951
The public is invited to attend the meeting and speak on behalf of a home if they believe there are grounds to protect it.
