CBD/RRUSP Fact Sheet
The intent of CBD is to replace the current PVD Special Permit which allows up to 24 bedrooms per acre. The CBD as proposed, will allow a variety of housing types up to 6 bedrooms per acre - this is an approximate 75% reduction over the previous PVD.
Ø A CBD is unmapped zoning district, established by Special Permit from the Town Board on a case by case basis to provide for a variety of housing types.
Ø An application to the Town Board for a CBD is required to have a minimum acreage of 25 contiguous acres on the following State Highways – Route 6, Route 202/35 and Route 9A.
Ø The Town Board may consider commercial components such as retail shops, personal service shops, professional offices, and small grocery stores to be included within the project area.
Ø Density: It is envisioned that CBD’s will be developed at a density of 3 units per acre (up to 6 bedrooms per acre) with a guarantee that 10% of the units be “forever affordable”. There is a possibility of higher density (of up to 5 units or 10 bedrooms per acre) with a "supervote" of the Town Board. (A supervote is when 4 out of 5 members vote in the affirmative). This would occur for projects that have a substantial benefit to the community which would include significant offsite infrastructure improvements.
Ø A preliminary review indicates that the following 3 parcels may apply for a CBD special permit:
o Frooks – 35.09 acres – approximately 108 units
o Mendelowitz – Route 6 – 36 acres – approximately 108 units
o Dyckman Ridge – Route 202 – 33.7 acres – approximately 101 units
o Total possible units of 317
For more specific detail on CBD– please read the Draft Ordinance.
The intent of RRUSP is to encourage the re-development and upgrading of pre-existing non-conforming residential properties.
Residential Re-Use Special Permit Highlights:
Ø RRUSP is a special permit that can only be issued by the Town Board.
Ø RRUSP will be applicable to pre-existing non-conforming residential units of 3 more in all zoning districts in the Town.
Ø 20% of the new units will have to be affordable under Westchester County guidelines.
Ø The total number of bedrooms shall not exceed an average of 2 bedrooms per unit.
Ø Density will be permitted at 20% over the existing density of units – rounded up.
