Our approach is completely different. There will be no more back room deals with developers. In the federal court case called Fortress Bible Church v. Paul Feiner, a federal court found that "The Town attempted to extort from the Church a payment in lieu of taxes, it ignored and then replaced its Planning Commissioner, when he advocated on the Church’s behalf, and Town staff intentionally destroyed relevant evidence." We are still paying off the $6.5 million settlement through 2024.
The "scatter site" model here in Greenburgh is one that we should expand, and this expansion should be done in partnership with local communities. Additionally many of our neighbors who live in affordable housing here in Greenburgh believe that they have little voice when it comes to their quality of life. We need 10-year term limits for all commissioners of the Greenburgh Housing Authority to ensure that they remain responsive to residents.
