Freightway Steering Committee Work Session Tuesday December 5th, 2017


Here is the Committee listening to Frank Fish of BFJ Consultants:


Even Doug Brout developer of Christie Place and One Palmer sitting next to me, was visibly restless and bored at times. Still he waited till the end to leave.

Our Mayor also in attendance made the invaluable observation and only comment of the evening, that one of the attached pages attached to the " Redevelopment Principles for Freightway Site " handed out was a violation order that did not belong there. He suggested we tear out that page.

I do to know what the meeting achieved: The Consultants asked the Committee to approve the findings of the November 13 Public Workshop by Friday of this week, December 8th 2017 almost a month later. Maybe that says it all...

Once again we heard about the MTA and the Tappan Zee Bridge..

Heard the same thing over and over again. Just to say there were so many meetings of the Steering Committee. Maybe all was said and done in the first fifteen minutes I was not there.

I spoke with our Planner Liz about the Survey missing from the website. She said she will inquire and put it up on the website soon.

I congratulated Barbara Jaffe in attendance for her resignation from the CHP. Meeting adjourned at about 8:00 p.m.

The major issue of ingress, egress and regress to the site was not mentioned. 
Maybe they are planning a helicopter pad on top of the Garage.


This is the 2.38 acre site. There are two streets that open to it on the West: Freightway to the North and a little alley to its South, that does not even exist on maps. I could not find its name.

 Two people cannot walk side by side on this little alley. How is all this going to connect to the rest of the Village ?... Maybe we should talk about this at the next meeting.



Last revised 1:30 p.m. EST Wednesday December 6th, 2017.
