Save OUR Scarsdale Neighborhoods from Demolition and Overdevelopment

We, the undersigned, request the Mayor and Trustees of the Village of Scarsdale to adopt a resolution imposing a six month moratorium on all development in the village and on all teardowns. During that period, we ask the Mayor and Village Board of Trustees to hold public work sessions on this subject, and to engage consultants and law firms as needed to modernize our codes and strengthen our governance to preserve our neighborhoods from overdevelopment.

Why is this important?

Our neighborhood homes are being systematically dismantled by over zealous builders and contractors without regard to history, aesthetics, community and sense of space.
NOW IS THE TIME TO STEP UP and make your opinions known
