New Castle Supervisor Barbara Gerrard has announced a schedule for completing work on the Chappaqua Crossing development at the former Reader’s Digest property that wraps up votes on zoning amendments and local laws by the end of March.
The schedule calls for the adoption of the Final Environmental Impact Statement on March 8 and public hearings on March 22 on the list of laws required to approve the proposed condominium and townhouse development and office building redevelopment on the Bedford Road property.
“The fact that we are setting those Public Hearings and making those referrals should not be taken by anyone as an indication that we intend to pass any or all of the proposed Local Laws,” Gerrard said in her Supervisor’s Report dated Feb. 22.
The laws include one removing a limit on the number of tenants in the B-RO-20 zoning district, a law to map a Multi-Family Planned Development Zone and a zoning amendment to change height limits.
It’s not clear how the town and the developers, Summit Development and Greenfield Partners, got here from the point earlier this winter when communiques were flying back and forth, on the town side demanding substantial changes to the plans and large chunks of new information and on the developers’ side threatening lawsuits and setting deadlines. Stay tuned for more.
