Rivertown Square Development Review Moving Along

The review process for the massive development proposed on the Akzo Chemical campus, near New York Sports Club in Dobbs Ferry, is proceeding in a timely manner. The development is slated to include over 200 residential apartments, a 100 unit hotel, a 70,000 square foot supermarket and a number of smaller retail stores.
Among other concerns the village of Dobbs Ferry will have to deal with, traffic certainly reigns at the top. Given that the Saw Mill Parkway is limited to passenger vehicles only, with no trucks allowed, there is some question as to who is going to bear the brunt of what it would seem would be a regular influx of delivery trucks, some of which will be large tractor trailers to service a 70,000 sq.ft. supermarket. Will it be the lone Dobbs Ferry residential street that services the area, Ogden Avenue, or will it be Lawrence Street in Ardsley, which would further exacerbate the Ardsley traffic woes?
Dobbs Ferry is expecting the Draft Environmental Impact Statement from the developer later this month. That document will be expected to answer this question as well as a whole host of others, such as possible negative effects on property values, mitigation measures and alternative plans. Once the DEIS is in the Board of Trustees hands, they will have 45 days to determine its thoroughness and to decide if it is ready to be released to the public for further review. The public will then have at least 30 days, with possible extensions, to weigh in on the DEIS before it is returned to the developer to address any outstanding concerns.
These are important meetings that shouldn’t be missed by interested persons. Village meeting agendas are generally posted in the police station, among a variety of other places.
