MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. – The Hearth at Mount Kisco’s public hearing will continue on Nov. 26, the Mount Kisco Planning Board confirmed at its Tuesday public meeting in Village Hall.
Hearth officials did not attend Tuesday night’s public hearing, instead asking for the meeting to be pushed back. Residents, who still had the opportunity to speak about the proposal, were once again silent. The 129-unit senior housing building, planned for 270 Kisco Ave. and accessed by a steep entrance road, has been met with little resistance from local residents.
In July, the project’s environmental impact findings were approved by the Planning Board, which adopted a resolution that summarizes several years of review. Once referred to as the Westchester Residence and Club when it was first introduced in 2006, the plan has gone through several changes over the years.
Now dubbed The Hearth at Mount Kisco, the current proposal calls for about 17.7 acres of about 50 acres of the old Swiss Benevolent Society property. While the site plan itself does not require a public hearing, special use, steep slopes and wetland permits do.
Those details are now slated to be further discussed on Nov. 26.
