Yonkers Civic Association invites Greenburgh neighbors to participate in review of proposal to have Target join Stew Leonard's, Costco and Home Depot at Austin Ave development. Meeting May 12 at St. Marks Church, 7 pm (corner of Truman Ave, Jane Street, Yonkers)
Dear Mr. Feiner,
With regard to the above subject meeting we are again having representatives from Target and their consultant make presentations addressing the proposed development. We received many comments on our last meeting some positive, some negative.We wish to let our members and the surrounding communities residents partake in asking questions or simply making a comment that they were unable to do at our last meeting. We respect the need for our members to ask their questions and receive answers from Target and their consultant. We also respect the need for our neighbors in Greenburg to have this same opportunity. We will set the parameters at the beginning of the meeting so all know how the meeting will be run and that respectful dialog must be maintained. I have attached a meeting announcement for your information and ask that you distribute it to your constituents that are affected by this proposed development. We thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter. Regards, Fred Weaver- President Nepera Park-Grey Oaks neighborhood Association (NPGONA)
We have invited representatives of TARGET to again address members of the
association and spokespersons of other Yonkers neighborhood organizations
about their proposed retail development on Stew Leonards Drive near Austin
Avenue and Prior Place. Some questions were raised at our last meeting that
we hope to be better addressed on May 12th.
Several formidable concessions have been stated by the Morris Brothers
They have rescinded their request for a Planned Multiuse Development
(PMD) zone change.
They expressed that they will instead seek a change in the language of
the site “overlay” to allow retail. This will still give us the opportunity,
through our City Council, to have a say in what restrictions we want for
the site development.
The scale of the building has been reduced and the site location has
been shifted further away from present residential homes.
After the initial presentation by TARGET, there will be a question and answer
session until all questions are answered. The meeting time has been moved
up to 7:00pm to give extra time for the Q&A. We just ask that you sign up
for questions or comments (no longer than 2minutes) when you arrive at the
meeting and ask only one question at a time. THANK YOU for the huge
turnout at the March meeting and hope to see you all again on May 12th
