Westchester County - The New Rochelle City Council, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hartley Homes Redevelopment Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the reaffirmation of previously adopted Findings Statement, issuance of a Negative Declaration and application for preliminary and final subdivision and site plan. Planned redevelopment of the present housing, replacing five existing hi-rise buildings with primarily three-story townhomes and one four story apartment building. The first phase of construction, 131 dwelling units, will be constructed on the vacant ball field on the south and when completed, residents will begin to be relocated to the new housing. This will allow some of the existing buildings to be demolished to allow construction of Phase 2 and finally to Phase 3. The project will include a total of 228 dwelling units, meeting the capacity of the existing housing. There will be a total of 257 parking spaces, exceeding the current parking provided. The project will consist of the new construction of 228 units to replace a portion of the current Robert Hartley Houses (Hartley Houses) project in New Rochelle, NY owned by the New Rochelle Municipal Housing Authority (NRMHA). Of the 198 rental units, 50 will be housed in a stand-alone building and 148 in 3 story townhouse style cluster buildings. The project will contain 14 studios, 36 one bedroom units and 95 two bedroom units. An additional two bedroom unit will be set aside for a live-in superintendent. There will also be a laundry room and 118 parking spaces which will also be rented. All of the units will be set aside for households with incomes at or below 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI) for the Westchester County, adjusted for family size. The plan is to build the units on vacant land currently owned by the City of New Rochelle which will be conveyed to the NRMHA and then move eligible tenants from the current Hartley Houses apartments into the new units. Subsequent phases will then be built on the land where the Hartley Houses now stand as the tenants move into the new units and the current buildings are demolished. The project is located between Brook Street and Horton Avenue (51 Winthrop Avenue & 9, 11, 13 and 17 Brook Street) in the City of New Rochelle, New York.
