East Parcel Redevelopment Informational Meeting - August 10, 2016

The August 10th Informational Meeting hosted by Village Trustee Rachelle Gebler consisted mostly of suggestions from the community concerning the use and amenities for the East Parcel.  Suggestions were taken from the audience, for example, inclusion of a fountain, sprinkler area for children, covered parking, alternate access from Devries Avenue, etc.  There was a lot of enthusiasm for roadways through Philipse Manor to alleviate congestion in the village.

Although this was not a public hearing, three formal public hearings where statements and concerns will go on record are planned for August 23rd, September 12th, and September 20th.  See posting below for more info.

We strongly encourage all Manor Residents to attend or send all concerns to the Town Clerk. 

The draft concept depicting the separate spaces is attached for your review.

More on the East Parcel Development Project

Public hearings have been scheduled for commentary on the East Parcel Development. During the community discussion held on August 10th many ideas and suggestions were raised for how the space might be developed to best fit the needs of the Sleepy Hollow Community. Many of the ideas would be great enhancements to the outdoor space in Sleepy Hollow, and some of the suggestions would have a direct impact on the Philipse Manor community.

One such suggestion was that Philipse Manor be considered for egress from the East Parcel.  The suggested route was through Devries Park and onto Devries Avenue.  If you have any concerns about this proposal, and how it may impact our community, I urge you to let your concerns be known during the upcoming public hearings. If you speak at the hearing or put your comments in writing to Paula McCarthy Tompkins (Village Clerk), they will go on record and must be addressed.

The dates for the three public hearings are:  August 23, September 12, and September 20, 2016.  The hearings are to be held at Village Hall at 7:00PM.  I cannot emphasize enough the importance of your comments and letters. 

The Engineer's Concept Plan can be found here. I encourage you to review the plan and to make suggestions or raise your concerns, either directly to the village or by contacting the PMIA through the website or reach out to me directly at my email  (cathy.golub [at] verizon.net) with your concerns.  I plan to present at one of the hearings on behalf of PMIA.

East Parcel Redevelopment Meeting

Hi neighbors!

Please mark your calendar for the August 10th meeting about the East Parcel Redevelopment project! The meeting will take place at 7pm at the James F. Galagno Senior Center at 55 Elm Street.

The meeting will be a great opportunity to learn more about some of the plans for the space that abuts our neighborhood, as well to voice any concerns or preferences you have for how the space is used.

An invitation from Village Trustee, Rachelle Gebler is below:

 

You are invited to two informal meetings to discuss the East Parcel Redevelopment. The East Parcel is a 28 acre portion of the old GM site located on the east side of the Metro North Railroad tracks and south of Devries park. These gatherings represent an opportunity to discuss the creation of a new center for community activity including areas for recreation, arts and culture as well as a modern Public Works facility to replace the current facility. 
 An engineer’s concept plan, a copy of which can be found on the
Village website's home page, has been created to start our discussion and now we have the exciting job of deciding exactly how to mold that to the needs of our community.  Meeting dates are July 27 and August 10 at 7:00 p.m. and will take place at the James F. Galgano Senior Center at 55 Elm St.
Written comments are also welcome.
Questions and comments can be sent to Rachelle Gebler

We hope to see you there!

Security Alert

Dear members,

We received notice from the Garden Club recently that there was a house break-in in Philipse Manor on Thursday 1/28.

A house on Millard was robbed of jewelry and other small items around 7:30. All took place within 15 minutes. A neighbor witnessed a two men in a black car idling outside the house, for at least a half hour around the time of the incident. Fortunately, no one was home or injured, but many items, including precious family jewelry pieces were taken.

Please notify your neighbors and other members, and continue to be diligent about keeping our community safe. Remember to lock your doors and use security systems whenever possible.

Thanks,

The PMIA Board
 

Parking During MetroNorth Construction

As you know, the MetroNorth track construction project is ongoing. Some folks have reported that the construction is causing issues in our parking lot.  Spots are being utilized by construction equipment and workers vehicles, making it difficult to park.

Construction workers are not supposed to park in or block the West Side Lot. Please know that we are aware of the issue and will continue to raise it with the construction workers.

In the meantime, please allow yourself some extra time in case the lot is blocked by any MetroNorth construction equipment and feel free to continue to notify us of any issues or problems.

Thanks!
