26CooperRoadAA proposed building moratorium in Scarsdale has residents talking about development, subdivisions, demolitions, stormwater, tree removals and home bulk.

The Board of Trustees proposed the moratorium at their November 14, 2023 meeting and a public hearing on the moratorium will be held on Tuesday December 12, 2023 at 8 pm. A decision on whether or not the Village will move forward with the moratorium is expected in January.

Interested parties on both sides of the issues have been circulating petitions. The first was issued by resident Jim Detmer after an application was considered to tear down a house in “The Woods,” in Edgewood with the intention of subdividing the lot and removing some stately trees. That petition proposed the moratorium so that the Village Board could “hold public work sessions on this subject, and engage consultants and law firms as needed to modernize our codes and strengthen our governance to preserve our neighborhoods from overdevelopment.”
The petition says, “our neighborhood homes are being systematically dismantled by over zealous builders and contractors without regard to history, aesthetics, community and sense of space. NOW IS THE TIME TO STEP UP and make your opinions known.”

This week we received a second petition from Shivi Bansal of Nelson Road. This petition contends that the moratorium would cause “economic disaster and reduction of property values.” It says, ““We have real concerns about the negative impact a moratorium on new construction would have on home values, lost revenue to local businesses and our Village,” said Scarsdale residents Tara and Geoff Sharp. “Surely the building code can be modified to address concerns without shutting down progress and potentially causing tremendous, unanticipated damage to our community.”
You can see it here:

Moratorium Draft Language

For those who want to learn more about the moratorium here is the rationale and the provisions as outlined by Scarsdale Village Attorney Nick Ward-Willis at the November 12, 2023 meeting of the Scarsdale Board of Trustees.

Read the resolution here:

In recent years, the improvements, subdivisions and redevelopments occurring on single- family residential properties have created a number of pervasive adverse impacts, including but not limited to the loss of the architectural and historic qualities and scale that helps define the fabric of our residential neighborhoods as well as negative environmental impacts such as increased flooding, and the destruction of mature trees and natural habitats. These impacts are resulting from, among other things, the rapid pace of demolitions and replacement of older homes, additions being built on single-family properties, the construction of accessory structures, and the subdivision and redevelopment of residential lots. Such development activities create new impervious surfaces thereby diminishing the natural drainage and flood mitigation provided by mature trees and open space. Our natural resources are finite and fragile, and the Village’s infrastructure and other public resources are increasingly being tested by more frequent and severe storm events.

Moreover, new single-family developments are increasingly being built at the limits of our community’s minimum dimensional requirements for setbacks, while maximizing and, at times seeking variances to exceed the limits of floor area ratios, lot coverages, and other bulk requirements. This development trend also places greater challenges upon the Board of Architectural Review and Committee for Historic Preservation which are responsible for maintaining and preserving aesthetic and architectural resources.

The Board of Trustees therefore finds it is in the best interest of the Village to enact a temporary moratorium within the zoning districts designated herein so as to temporarily pause the acceptance, consideration, and approval of certain land use applications, such as applications for subdivisions, demolitions, building permits, site plan approval, and special permits.

This moratorium will allow adequate time for the Board of Trustees to identify and implement such amendments to the Village’s Zoning Code as may be necessary to mitigate or avoid the deleterious impacts of the aforementioned development activities. The Board of Trustees finds that a moratorium will be protective of the public interest and welfare and ensure consistency with any newly-adopted zoning requirements. This moratorium will promote community planning values by regulating land development based on a carefully considered plan and will prevent potential applicants from seeking approvals before new conditions and requirements are established.

Section 2. Statutory and Constitutional Authority.
The Scarsdale Board of Trustees is authorized and empowered to adopt this local law pursuant to Article IX of the New York State Constitution, the New York State Municipal Home Rule, the applicable and relevant sections of the New York State Village Law, and the general police power vested with the Village of Scarsdale to promote the health, safety and welfare of all residents and property owners in the Village of Scarsdale.

Section 4. Applicable Zoning Districts.
This local law shall only be applicable to Residence A and C Zoning Districts. Section 5. Term.
This local law shall only apply to applications submitted after November 14, 2023, and shall be in effect for a period of six (6) months from the effective date hereof unless repealed, modified, extended or supplemented by further local law of the Village of Scarsdale.

Section 6. Moratorium.
A. Subdivision, Site Plan, and Special Use Permit. No board, committee, agency, department, officer, employee, consultant, or agent of the Village of Scarsdale shall accept for review, continue review, hold a hearing, or make any decision upon any application for approval of a subdivision; site plan; a special use permit pursuant to Village Code § 310-88.A (2) or (4); or a special use permit pursuant to Village Code Chapter 254 concerning Stormwater Management and Erosion and Sediment Control permits (SWEC). All time periods set forth under state law or the Village Code for the processing and making decisions and all aspects of subdivision approval (including but not limited to preliminary, and final subdivision plats), site plan approval and special use permit approval for swimming pools and courts are hereby suspended and stayed while this local law is in effect.

All time periods set forth under state law or the Village Code for the processing and making decisions and all aspects of applications for building permit or demolition approval as indicated herein are hereby suspended and stayed while this local law is in effect.

A. Applications for residential subdivision, residential special permit, and/or residential site plan approval pending before any land use board.

34GreenacresAerialViewA stately Colonial home with a sweeping circular driveway atop Greenacres Avenue is now for sale in Scarsdale.

Perched above the neighborhood, the 1.77 acre property affords a panoramic view of Greenacres and beyond. The property is landscaped and terraced with stone walls that lead to sitting areas, fountains and two Koi ponds. The winding pathways that extend around and down the hill take you through your own private country estate just a few minutes from the train station.newcombs

The original house was built in 1911. However, in 1928, architects Patterson & Wilcox and landscape architects Charles W. Leavitt & Son were retained to enhance both the home and the property. An article, published in Country Life Magazine in 1928, details the transformation of the “tall and rather forbidding house,” with the addition of a semi-circular portico at the front door and a Palladian window above it. The terraces, paths and gardens were designed to “relate perfectly to the house,” and “represents the ideal coordination of architecture and landscape design.”

According to early issues of the Scarsdale Inquirer, at the time of the renovation, the home was owned by Newcomb and Anna May Cleveland. Mr. Cleveland was the chairman of the board of Erickson and Company, a New York Advertising Agency. His wife, the former Anna May Ross “was the daughter of Riley R. Ross, publisher with Dodd, Mead and Company and Mary Willey Ross. She was a charter member of the Scarsdale Woman's Club and in former years had been active in connection with the flower shows of its garden section.”

In 1929 Cleveland sponsored a competition for a $1,000 award for sculpture that was granted to eighteen men who were responsible for the artistic enrichment of the Bronx River Parkway. He endowed a scientific prize that is still awarded today, called the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Newcomb Cleveland Prize.

34GreenacresEntryAll this history should not suggest that the house is locked in a former era. Features inside the house combine the best elements of the past with everything you need to live in it over a century later. Some of the most striking details are the dentil moldings, pocket doors, a call bell, back stairways, recessed cabinetry and a majestic circular stairway that extends from the first to the third floor.

34GreenacresAvenueWoodworkAll the rooms in the 7,200 square foot house are expansive, the layout is classic and there’s plenty of space for entertaining, living and working. The ample butler’s pantry and large kitchen complement a grand dining room with plenty of room for large celebrations. Another nice feature is a long galley room along the back of the house where you can enjoy the expansive views.

On the second floor the house has four large bedrooms all with their own baths. In fact, the primary suite has two bathrooms, a dressing room and another room that could be used as an office or nursery. All the bedrooms rooms are generously sized and there is a laundry room both there and on the lower level.

The biggest surprise came on the third floor where we found a large room with a stage and curtain and a ballerina’s barre along the wall. Rumor has it that the Broadway producer of “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown,” once owned the house and built the stage so that his children could perform. 34GreenacresStairwayAlso upstairs are three additional bedrooms.

The lower level provided a glimpse into history as it includes both an apartment with a small kitchen and another woodworking shop room. From this lower level there are doors out to stone terraces with frescoed walls and a “grotto” with a ceramic fountain. There are two garages below the house and another two in a freestanding garage at the base of the circular driveway.

The house is listed for $4,699,000 by Sloane A. Worth of Houlihan Lawrence in Scarsdale. See more here and contact her at sworth@houlihanlawrence.com or 917-992-3055.

46LincolnRoadStormwater woes were top of mind for residents of Lincoln, Carthage and Fayette Roads who came to Village Hall on November 29 to protest a proposed subdivision that they feared would bring additional flooding to their neighborhood.

The Planning Board met on 11-29 to consider a proposed three lot subdivision combining 46 Lincoln Road and 101 Carthage Road and creating a new lot in between the two. See the details here. Project Engineer Eliot Senor presented the plans with input from the applicant Raj Krishnan. Since the Committee for Historic Preservation is still weighing whether or not the mid-century modern house at 46 Lincoln Road can be demolished, the Planning Board assumed that 46 Lincoln would remain and that two new houses would be built on the two adjoining lots. At 101 Carthage Road the builder has permission to tear down the existing house and build a new one.

The Planning Board discussion centered on a watercourse that runs through the property and whether or not it should be enclosed, relocated and deeded to the Village for maintenance. It is currently piped with a corroded metal pipe and is not legal. The existing property includes a flat depression that is very wet and it was unclear whether this was due to natural conditions or the failure of the watercourse. This area would be the site of the house on the middle property. There were also questions about a requirement for a 25-foot setback from both sides of the watercourse.46LincolnTrees

Explaining his goals, the applicant and builder Raj Krishnan said, “We are building that community now. The topography is very challenging due to the bowl phenomenon. It does not make 46 Lincoln livable. The pipe is rotted and is not handing water well. We feel that it’s right to upgrade the pipe and make sure it handles the storm drainage through the property. We built houses on Carthage and Fayette and this drainage will affect it. This will make it optimal. Will allow 3 beautiful families to live there without flooding. It will optimize the entire community.”

In order to do the subdivision and build two new houses, 57 trees would need to be taken down. Senor said that his analysis of the trees showed that 11 are invasive species, 12 are deemed hazardous and 3 are in poor condition.

There is ample room to create three lots on the property. About the subdivision Krishnan said, “Another reason to create these three lots is that there are two subdivided lots across the street – and then this will fit in better with the community. It would optimize the aesthetic of the neighborhood. These lots are bigger than the ones up the street.”

Nine neighbors sent letters to the Planning Board in advance of the meeting and many spoke that night.

Jason Yellin wrote, “Carthage Road has been hard hit by major water and storm events over the years. Our basement was flooded with 26” of water during Hurricane Ida which required over $200,000 of water and mold remediation and remodeling that was not covered by FEMA relief funds or insurance. I recall watching the water shooting up from the storm drains on Carthage Road, directly across from our house in the middle of the proposed work area….. the water simply has no place to go as the Village keeps approving home renovations and larger homes with basements with no overarching water management goals or solutions.”

He continued, “We have tried to remediate water issues at our home through the installation of catch basin, French drains and pitch buildup around our house. We recently were forced to raise a basement door 6 inches off the ground. We have wrapped the cement foundation of our home twice since moving in 11 years ago. Honestly, we are out of ideas how to protect our home from the next major water storm. Noreaster, tropical storm or hurricane. Enough is enough…. It is unfair to ask the neighbors in this hard-hit area to shoulder this undue risk. “

Diana Hurwitz said, “There has been a tremendous shift in water and water issues. We have spent tens of thousands of dollars cleaning up after storms. Drainage has gotten worse. Water has come over the curb and gone into the sewers. I am opposed to the subdivision. We are graced with a beautiful midcentury home on the lot and a lot of green space that we all enjoy. We have been blighted by overdeveloped homes that are not sensitive to the neighborhood. 57 trees are a lot to lose for the neighborhood – I find it hard to believe that taking down 57 trees won’t have a negative effect on drainage.”

She continued, “This water diversion seems cockamamie – an underground watercourse is hard to maintain. You should ask the developer to put up a bond for water issues for 5 years after the project so that we have somewhere to go.”

Elise Blatter from 93 Carthage said “Our neighborhood has experienced tremendous flooding – Ida was devastating……Overbuilding on heavily saturated land is irresponsible. Eliminating permeable land is negatively impacting our neighborhood. The structures that are going up are too large. There is no longer sunlight in our front yard… I am strongly against the subdivision.”

Jessica Bandel from 96 Carthage Road said, “Overbuilding large homes on small lots seems to be more frequent. I believe we need to change zoning code to prevent this… Our garage had two feet of water during Hurricane Ida. We have to use sandbags to prevent water from the sewer from coming into our house. How will adding three more homes help this? Developers have found loopholes to build homes that loom over neighboring homes. I believe there should be 2 not 3 homes there…. I would implore the board to leave the lot lines Design should be tasteful and fit into our beautiful neighborhood.”

Myra Saul of 5 Lincoln Road said that she has lived here for years but is now getting flooding in her basement. She said, “It is happening all over the neighborhood…. I strongly take issue with the kind of houses they are proposing…. I am completely against this subdivision.”

Elaine Weir of 138 Brewster Road said, “I love newly built houses but I am concerned with water issues, the loss of trees and the loss of open space. This would stress our water system. The new houses are set higher than the older houses which are getting flooded. We should stop subdividing in Scarsdale.

Marcia Helbling of 42 Fayette Road said she had previously spoken to the Planning Board about spoke about two houses at 44 Fayette and 92 Carthage. She said, “It’s the size of these builds I am concerned about. You can’t appreciate the scale of this on a piece of paper. I am concerned that the same thing will happen there. People stop me in the street to tell me what they think of 44 Fayette Road. She read a text from a friend that said, “Marcia – I passed by your corner.
What a monstrosity they built. I am sorry they ruined your corner of Scarsdale.”
She continued, “Water is constantly running in the sewer – my sump pump is constantly running. Water has to go somewhere. You have to appreciate the people who are here still and think about our homes.”

Jeannie Rosenthal of Innes Road said she grew up in Scarsdale and moved back here six years ago. She said, “I want to comment on the aesthetic. We have lost open space. I appreciated the variation in the home design. The design of these houses erodes the magic of our town. The subdivision feels like Levittown – it doesn’t feel like Scarsdale.”

Jack Miller of 45 Fayette Road said that the builder should also remove many dead trees that were not catalogued. Turing to engineer Eliot Senor he said, “I believe Eliot you once did an excellent job preventing a subdivision on this same site.”

He continued, “I love this town, I have been on this board and on the BAR – all four boards do different things. Everything is compartmentalized.” Turning to the plan he said, “You guys are looking at boxes. These are going to be big houses.”

He showed a photo of water bubbling over the curb in a rainstorm – and bubbling out of the sewer. He said, “Even when it’s not raining there is water moving through our neighborhood. We are getting homes with basements – where there were none. They dig 40 x 30 foot, ten feet deep basements.” He told the Planning Board that it is their charge to protect the neighborhood and said, “This is not protecting the ecological character of the property. If this stream fails it will take down Lincoln, Mamaroneck Road and even one of the new homes across the street.”

David Schwartz of Carthage Road said, “I live in one of the homes that is the subdivision across the street. We have terrible water problems. We have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars remediating the damage. About the subdivision he said, “Some things are meant to be left alone…. We look around at what has happened – enough is enough. Two new homes might be appropriate but enough is enough.”

Senor told the Board he would work on the drainage plan and the design and on calculations of water flow.

Raj Kirshnan responded to the neighbors saying, “As a community member I am sensitive to the issues that have been raised. This is the polarization of pro vs. anti-development. This has become so polarized. I would like to bring these two sides together. These are all problems. This meeting is about the subdivision. We would like to bring people together to talk about the big picture. He then addressed many of the speakers saying “Elise – your house is one of the tallest. Marcia is also part of a four-lot subdivision.” To which Marcia replied, “I am not part of the subdivision.” He said, “I am talking about bringing three families into Scarsdale to enjoy the amenities here.”

After discussion from the board, Planning Board Chairman Clapp concluded the meeting and said that the application would be held over to the January meeting allow time to get further reports and information.

He asked the applicants to provide justification about why the watercourse should be piped rather than open and for a plan that places it beyond the 25 foot buffer. He asked for more information about the soil condition, hydrolics and permeability of the flat middle lot that is now very wet. The board also agreed to move forward with a SQRA review which is an assessment of any environmental impacts of the project.
