Demolotion by the CHP since 2011

Here is a list from the Village website of homes approved for demolition since January of 2011:


In 2011: 29 homes approved for demolition.

In 2012: 33 homes approved for demolition.

In 2013 so far: 16 approved so far for demolition, of the two denied the BAR approved them.
                        So, 18 so far half way through the year....

In the last three years alone, we have lost about 100 homes collectively probably about 5,000 to 9,000 years of history if you think each home was conservatively at least 50 to 90 ( and even 103, in one instance- 45 Cushman  )  years old...All that history sitting in a landfill somewhere.

How do you replicate history, character, craftmanship, age, dignity, integrity ? ...

What is the CHP waiting to preserve ? Egyptian pyramids to show up in Scarsdale or Romain ruins ?

No, we have homes 90, 100 and even 50, 60 years old that need to be preserved. This is how you establish history, not by demolishing...America is a young country that needs to uphold and preserve every little morsel of history we have. No, to the contrary in Scarsdale, especially we are demolishing, destroying and sending to the landfill whatever history we have. This is very wrong. Don't you agree ?




For records prior to 2011, I suppose I would have to get a FOIL and the Village has been very reluctant  recently to release such documents citing my "curiosity"....I wanted to get the number of building permits issued per year for the last five years, Mr. Goodwin cited this could not be possible due to man power shortage. In another e-mail our Manager objected to my need for quantitative analysis, the VB was copied. No further comment, as they say...
