Warburton Ave. Update
With summer nearly over and fall upon us City Hall has again picked up on a few of the many open items and issues along Warburton Ave. Below are some of the highlights:
First – after a flurry of emails and phone calls the City Council voted unanimously to move forward on the community’s zoning proposal for Upper Warburton Ave. (to go from hi-rise to garden apartments) and the next step will be a public hearing at City Hall on Tuesday, October 14th – so save the date and make plans to attend.
Next – was a preliminary proposal for a 43 unit townhouse style development to replace the homes located at 1171, 1175 and 1189 Warburton Ave. The developer has expressed an interest in being a good neighbor and in that vain put forth a project that in many ways reflects the standards of the MG zone while retaining the right to utilize some of the A zone standards.
And – REMI Development’s principal, Eric Kaiser, (owner of the pit at 1077 Warburton Ave.) appeared briefly before the planning board this week – he was unprepared to address the issues at hand and will have to return at a later date.
Next RCCY Meeting
Lastly – there’s so much going on in our area – way too complex for an email – so to catch up on things & coordinate our next steps we’ll be having our next RCCY meeting this Tuesday, September 16th at 7:30 p.m. at the home of Audra Moran & Joe Sampino located at 26 Odell Ave. Active residents are the key to a better Greystone – so join us Tuesday and we’ll get things done!
