New Castle: Train Station, Chap Crossing on Agendas

Town Board, Planning Board, each meet tonight at New Castle Town Hall in Chappaqua.

Town Board

The New Castle Town Board will meet tonight for a work session, starting at 8 p.m. at New Castle Town Hall in Chappaqua. Agenda items include:

  • Reviewing proposals to use the train station.
  • Discussing the status of the Millwood firehouse and what sort of relationship it may have to the town's tree removal law.
  • Reviewing an engineering contract for the proposed sewer districts for Riverwoods and Yeshiva Farm Settlement. The contract, according to enginer Dolph Rutfeld, will involve checking to see whether or not the original route for the sewer system is still viable.
  • Reviewing contractor bids for the proposed Croton Avenue-High Ridge Road water district.

Planning Board

The Planning Board meets tonight for a regular session, starting at 7 p.m. at town hall. The board's items include:

  • Discussing a proposed local law that would impact the Chappaqua Crossing housing zone. It would change the zoning code so that a Multifamily Planned Development (MFPD) zone can be given unlimited, 6-month extensions from the town board, which would allow for time for an applicant to get site plan approval from the planning board after a site has been given the zone. Chappaqua Crossing is the only site that would be affected by the proposed change. Currently, only two, 6-month extensions can be sought and developer Summit/Greenfield has used both of them.

  • Extension of subdivision and site plan approvals given last September for the new Millwood firehouse.
