On March 2nd at 7pm the Cortlandt Planning Board is holding a public hearing via Zoom regarding a proposed 92 bed facility that will operate 24 hours a day with 86 staff members. As you probably know, the location of the project is 2016 Quaker Ridge Road.
You do NOT need to be a Cortlandt resident to JOIN or be heard at this meeting. This may be your only opportunity to ask questions and/or raise any concerns you may have. A link to the meeting is at the bottom of this email.
We encourage you to join the Zoom meeting on Tuesday, March 2, and to speak about your concerns and ask questions. As you prepare your comments, please include your address and a little bit about why you moved to / live in this wonderful community. At this meeting, the Planning Board is looking to determine if there are “potential significant environmental impacts” that have not already been studied. We believe there are several impacts that have not been adequately studied. Environmental impacts include but are not limited to traffic, water, sewer, light, noise, odors, wildlife, and community character.
Community character is defined by all the man-made and natural features of the area. It includes the visual character, and its visual landscape; but also includes the buildings and structures and their uses, the natural environment, activities, town services, and local policies that are in place. These combine to create a sense of place or character that defines the area.
As you prepare your comments, please keep in mind that all patients are protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Thus, both because it is the right thing to do and because of the protection the Act offers, comments should not focus on the patients or the nature of their illness.
Below is the Zoom link and dial-in number to join the meeting on Tuesday, March 2nd, at 7pm. Please attend the Planning Board’s Public Hearing even if you don’t plan to speak as we need to show the Planning Board how we are all connected and integral within the greater Teatown community .
