Westchester County - The New Rochelle City Council, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Hartley Houses Revitalization. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on November 9, 2004, 8:00 p.m. at the New Rochelle City Hall, 515 North Ave. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until November 19, 2004 or 10 days after the close of the public hearing. The action involves the redevelopment of the New Rochelle Municipal Housing Authority‘s (NRMHA) Hartley Houses complex, located within the City of New Rochelle at the intersection of Horton Avenue and Brook Streets, at a more compatible neighborhood scale. This includes, among other actions: (i) adoption of an amendment to the Lincoln Avenue Urban Renewal Plan; (ii) rezoning of the proposed Hartley Houses redevelopment site to the PUD-AH district, and possible text change to accommodate the proposed housing types; (iii) revisions to the New Rochelle Comprehensive Plan to reflect the objectives of the amended Urban Renewal Plan; (iv) amendment of the Official Map to reopen Winthrop Avenue; (v) conveyance of City-owned property to the NRMHA; and (vi) site plan and/or subdivision approval by the Planning Board.

The proposed project calls for the removal of the five existing public housing towers and their replacement with primarily three-story townhouses and one new four-story structure spread across the Hartley site and neighboring parcels. The townhouses are intended to provide a mix of homeownership and rental units in order to provide a variety of living choices and help stabilize the neighborhood. The four-story building incorporates townhouse-style units on the first two floors, and elevator serviced apartments on the top two floors. To eliminate the superblock created by the existing Hartley Houses facility and provide for an integrated development pattern, Winthrop Avenue will be extended through the redevelopment site, reestablishing the neighborhood roadway grid. The currently proposed development concept would create 230 dwelling units, a net decrease of ten units from the number of existing apartments at the Hartley Houses. The project is located at the intersection of Horton Avenue and Brook Street (51, 80 and 81 Winthrop Avenue, 60 and 70 Horton Avenue); New Rochelle, NY.
