MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Mount Kisco residents are speaking out against a developer's proposal to buy 17.7 acres of village-owned land at Kisco Avenue for $4 million and turn it into a 129-unit senior housing complex.
More than 100 residents spoke out at a public hearing on May 15 at Village Hall. The village board remains split on the proposal, with Mayor Michael Cindrich supporting the plan, Trustee Peter Grunthal opposing the plan, while trustees Anthony Markus, Karen Schleimer and Jean Farber wanted more information, according to The Examiner.
At the hearing, residents asked that the land be preserved and said the land was unsuitable for the project. Supporters have said the development would put millions back on the tax rolls.
The public hearing was adjourned until June 5.
HFZ Capital, the firm behind the development, has expressed a frustration a contract has not been signed on the property and has threatened a $50 million lawsuit against the village.
