Moratorium on development: Central Ave recommended by PLanning Commissioner
Release Date: January 08, 2007

Mark Stellato, Commissioner of Planning, has recommended a development moratorium on site plans and subdivisions for residential development in the Central Avemixed use impact district be established so that the town and its consultants can fully study the matter and make recommendations back to the Town Board. In the last 15 years the Edgemont school district’s enrollment has increased from 1,355 to 1,923, an increase in 42%. The increase in school population has required the need for additional educational facilities not contemplated when the current plan was developed and zoning enacted.

The portion of Central Aveserved by the Edgemont school district includes 909 apartments in various multifamily dwellings, representing 32% of total residential component of the school district and a 60 percent increase in the number of residential units from 1976.

Other factors besides increased enrollment: no major roadway infrastructure improvements undertaken since the adoption of the 1976 plan. In 2000, to accommodate a growing student population, the EdgemontSchool districtundertook a capital improvement program which expanded facilities at all 3 schools. Those facilities are at full capacity.

I support the proposed moratorium and hope that the Town Board will schedule a hearing date this Wednesday night – our next Town Board meeting. This proposed moratorium has the support of Edgemont civic leaders.
