Yorrktown Town Board: Preserving historic structures & removing unsafe structures 11/27/12

Town Board
November 27, 2012

Meeting highlights. For a full summary, visit ciyinfo.org.

1. Unsafe structure, 1481 Maiden Lane
The Board postponed making a decision to spend Town funds to remove the remnants of this burned out house and place a lien on the property in order to recoup costs after Supervisor Grace voiced concern that the Town might not be able to recover the costs.

2. Knapp House
The Board’s consensus was that “the horse was out of the barn” in terms of saving the house, and Planning Director Tegeder advised the Board that the Town has a database of historic properties and that what was needed was for the Landmarks Commission to come up with a policy and goals so that when an application to develop or change one of the properties is made, the historic nature of the structure can be part of the application’s initial review.

3. Boniello Subdivision (Route 202)
The legal issue that was discussed was whether a 1991 rezoning from R1-20 to R2 that paved the way for a 12 unit development off Route 202 was still valid if the property owner did not (and could not) comply with the conditions in the rezoning resolution.

4. Bright Beginnings (YCCC rent)
For the third time, the Board discussed, but failed to reach a decision, on the request from the owners of the day care facility to reduce their 2013 rent.

5. An additional Board meeting was scheduled for December 18. A public hearing will be held on revised parking, landscaping and signage requirements for the JV Mall site.
