ABOUT THE STUDY
The Village of Scarsdale is conducting a visioning study to guide planning efforts for the Freightway Site, an underutilized area adjacent to the Scarsdale Metro North Railroad Station. The site is currently used for commuter parking with approximately 700 spaces, including an aging five-story parking garage and two surface parking lots. This opportunity area was one of three key sites identified in An Update of the Village Center Component of the Village of Scarsdale Comprehensive Plan (2010). The Village recognizes the importance of continued planning for this site to ensure that any future redevelopment enhances Village Center and meets local needs.
The primary objective for the study is to have a broad and meaningful public engagement process. There have been numerous opportunities for input including, but not limited to three (3) public workshops and an online survey, focus groups, walking tours and intercept surveys.
The study will help to define a set of realistic and publicly supported development goals and objectives for the site. The study is supported by technical planning and market professionals so as to develop realistic development alternatives that consider potential impacts and/or constraints, such as revenue generation, parking, traffic, infrastructure, school enrollment, other potential impacts on community facilities and services, and potential demographic changes. Issues that may require further study will also be identified.
