Committee for Historic Preservation to Weigh the Demolition of Eight Properties at September 29 Meeting

11DolmaRoadAn application has been filed to demolish this historic home at 11 Dolma Road.Uncertainty from the pandemic, the election and climate change don’t seem to be affecting developers and homeowners in Scarsdale who are taking advantage of Scarsdale’s weak preservation laws to raze more homes. The Scarsdale Board of Trustees had planned to reconsider preservation and land use laws prior to the COVID outbreak, but that study was shelved when the crisis hit.

On Tuesday September 29, the Committee for Historic Preservation will meet to consider the demolition of eight homes. One is 11 Dolma Road, which was considered at a meeting on June 30 and held over to the September meeting to give the committee more time to walk the property and analyze the historical data presented at the prior meeting. The Village retained expert Andrew Scott Dolkhart who contends that the home warrants preservation. Attorneys from Cuddy and Feder, retained by the new owners contend that the home does not meet criteria for preservation and that the committee should grant Sarah and Steven Binetter permission to take down the iconic home built in 1928.80GriffenAvenue80 Griffen Avenue built in 1910.

Also up for consideration are 80 Griffen Road, built in 1910 and 28 Quentin Road built in 1937.
Take a look at the documents and join the Zoom at 7 pm on September 29, 2020.

Here’s the complete list of properties on the agenda:

394 Heathcote Road Demo house built in 1957
28 Quentin Road Demo house built in 1937
