Public Feedback Invited on Development of Freightway Site on Tuesday January 22

East EndThis letter was sent to Scarsdale10583 from Scarsdale VillageTrustee Jane Veron:
Dear Editor:I would like to invite Scarsdale residents, business owners, and all other interested parties to participate in the Freightway public feedback session scheduled for Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at 6:30 pm at Village Hall. As we move forward on one of the most important and impactful developments in Scarsdale’s recent history, we continue to seek your input.

Together, we have been reimagining possibilities for the Freightway site, a 2.38 acre Village-owned parcel of land situated adjacent to the Scarsdale train station. The site is marked by an aging parking infrastructure built in 1972 as well as nearby surface lots. At our November 24, 2018, meeting, we shared with the public the seven conceptual plans we received from the development community in response to our RFEI (Request for Expression of Interest) issued July 16, 2018. For your ease of review, we uploaded the submissions to the website at scarsdale.com under the Planning Department tab, entitled Freightway Site.

We have been diligently working for years to arrive at this very exciting moment for Scarsdale. After many decades of discussion and multiple studies, our community is now ready to embrace the promise of this site. In 2010, the Village Center Update to the Comprehensive Plan laid the framework for a redevelopment plan. In March 2017, we embarked on a community-wide listening and visioning study, producing a final report that established principles that guided the RFEI process. Now, we are at the stage where we will draft an RFP (Request for Proposal) which we plan to circulate to the development community in the coming months.

The community has been with us every step of the way. Please join us on January 22 and/or send your written comments to clerk@scarsdale.com. To receive notifications about Freightway and other Village initiatives and services, please enroll in Notify Me on Scarsdale.com.

Thanks for your consideration,
