To be held at Harmon Firehouse 7:30-9 pm; 30 Wayne Street.
Dear neighbors: I look forward to seeing you all tonight (Tuesday 6/18) at the Harmon firehouse. It is important for all of us to make our views known and to understand what is planned for our village. These are some of the questions which I have:
--What is the Board’s target number for Croton’s future population?
--Approximately how many apartments could be built “as of right” under the proposed zoning?
--Approximately how many new residents would those apartments bring?
--What is the estimate for new vehicles which would need parking, and where would those parking spaces be found?
--How many new students would the new apartments bring, and what input has the school district given with regard to the rezoning?
--What is the current spare capacity of the village water system, and how many additional residents can the existing system serve?
--How have the consultants accounted for the impact of climate change on the rezoning, and specifically the increased floodplain along Riverside?
--If the natural gas moratorium that currently impacts communities south of Croton is extended to us, how would this impact the rezoning?
--How many of the new apartments will be affordable and how many will be market rate?
--What is the opinion of the village attorney as to setting aside apartments for Croton residents and employees of the village and school district?
--And for a bonus question: Given the declining demand for retail space, will developers be allowed to have ground floor apartments, and how many additional residents would this bring?

Can the three line drawings, not the colored one, be made larger?ReplyDelete
Two additional questions I would add:ReplyDelete
- In order to compensate for potential lost parking and the trend towards public transportation, would the town consider having a shuttle to/from the major commercial portions of croton (Train station -- riverside -- upper village)?
- What is the anticipated increased tax revenue, per additional resident, associated with these developments (either from the property taxes paid by the owners of rental units or, with respect to condominiums, taxes paid by condominium owners)?
Funny. Who is going to pay for this? Me? You? The condo owners across from the car lot and truck wash station?Delete
Thanks. My sister was there. The die is cast, and she said it was a total waste of time.ReplyDelete
Shuttles. Good grief. Let 'em pay for the bus like the rest of us. Or hey no bicycles, no walking? Maybe they can take a page from our neighbors. Oops. My bad. They already are.Delete
Just to let everyone know. None of these questions were answered because of the meeting format. SURPRISED?ReplyDelete
