Paul Feiner, Greenburgh Town Supervisor, is looking for your opinion on the proposed Request for Proposal for the Frank’s Nursery site. Please visit Town of Greenburgh’s website to read more and complete and return a questionnaire.
His suggestion: The RFP should be prepared this summer. A new sign should be placed outside of Frank’s inviting potential property owners to inquire about the RFP process and to look at the property. The town should invite all potential applicants to meet with their environmental consultants – the consultant who investigated the contamination problems at Frank’s. The goal: to generate maximum interest, maximum revenue from the property.
The town will be releasing the proposed comprehensive plan in the fall of 2013. This plan, which has been worked on by planners and civic leaders for five years, will outline some recommendations for properties throughout the town. Some Town Board members believe that the RFP should limit proposals to uses included in the comprehensive plan. And, that we should wait until the plan is presented to the public before issuing an RFP. A realistic time table for the town to sell the property: winter, 2014.
All the responses will be shared with the Town Board. For more information, see Town of Greenburgh’s website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
