Board of Appeals Meeting May 8th at Village Hall

Friends,

There is a Zoning Board of Appeals meeting on Wednesday May 8th at Village Hall.

This is the Agenda I received: Please scroll all the way down.

You'll see my previous correspondence further below as well as e-mail from February, to the previous board:





Here is the e-mail I sent to Planning with copies to John Goodwin at the Manager's office, Liz Marrinan in Planning and Mr. Paul Diamond Chair of the Committee for Historic Preservation:



Ms. Marrinan,

Please distribute this to Chairs and Members of all three land use ( land abuse so far... ) Planning, BAR and Zoning  and let them know that I am, as I have done at the two  previous Planning Board meetings ( April and March ) appealing on behalf of all that do not have a voice ( flora and fauna ) as well as those in this town who have had enough of this assault and wish all "development"  ( harassment of our land, values and heritage ) to stop effective immediately. 

I have been contacted recently, by many residents after my articles were published in the electronic  ( http://scarsdale10583.com/201304163188/village-voices/where-is-the-village-in-the-park.html -Scarsdale10583) and paper ( http://www.scarsdalenews.com/Scarsdale_Inquirer/Home.html Scarsdale Inquirer ) media voicing their opinions, airing their despair, frustration ad infinitum...

Please start planning for a better Scarsdale now. 

Planning has a positive connotation that has been absent from all such meetings that I have attended or heard of. Let it be the start tonight that finally Planning will be for a better Scarsdale and not a worse one: cluttered with one home after another, infrastructre burdened, threatened, air replaced with cubic feet of concrete, earth replaced with impervious surfaces suffocating all  organisms underneath, all this contributing to climate change, to 100 year storms we have been experiencing every other year now...

As Newton said  " All action has an equal and opposite reaction " there is a cause and effect relationship here, that our elected and appointed officials have to acknowledge finally, and once and for all.

----------------------------------------------




Dear Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning Board and BAR members,

You may have heard I do not exactly support all this building. In fact a while ago I suggested you stop all this building: Email  to the ZBA on February 13th, 2013 that is attached below.

I hope this new board can and will finally take the right environmentally responsive action and stop acting like we are back in 1701 in Scarsdale.

Why do we have rules if all can be bent ? Scarsdale can no longer support such continuous unrelenting, environmental and ecological assault. I invite you to join my petition here:


I categorically and indiscriminately oppose all applications in  front of you and move that you take action to protect our environment once and for all, starting tonight.

For a starter, all building and demolishing should be stopped in the A-3 residential district which is already very crowded and congested tonight.

With best wishes for a better future for all,



   Lika

E-mail exchange from February 2013:

Hi Lika –
As you requested, I will distribute your email to both Boards.
Thanks

Subject: Scarsdale Leaders...
Mayor Dr. Flisser and Village Manager Mr. Gatta,
I am very sorry to read and to have received the agenda below for the ZBA tonight, February 13th,  as well as the Planning Board agenda for February 27, in spite of all my recommendations and correspondence, to the contrary. 
I oppose all and every single one of the applications below as well as the applications on the Planning Board agenda. 
No application deserves to be brought up to these Boards any more and further in view of current environmental considerations the applicants themselves should be cognizant of the damage they are causing and exercise restraint and control. However, none of this evident, at least to this observer.
We accuse our teenagers going on binge drinking, however the "adults" are engaging in similar irresponsible behavior and further encouraging and promoting such behavior by their very own actions in the way they deal with the environment and the economy- all of which is transparent right here in Scarsdale.
I call on you, our leaders here in Scarsdale,  to lead by example and call a stop to such reckless, irresponsible and negligent behavior on the part of our environment as well as our economy. 
We are becoming a Village in a basin, with all the construction getting approved, further our budget seems to grow every year, our debt increasing and yet our roads are still full of potholes... 
None of this is acceptable any more.
Ms. Marrinan: Please distribute among the ZBA and the Planning Board members.
Ms. Conkling: Please distribute to the VB.
Thank you very much,
   Lika
