Alternate Site for New Croton DPW Facility Comes to Market

March 5, 2006

Neighboring the Croton-Harmon school bus garage on Route 129, is a newly-listed 1.83 acre commercially-zoned parcel (view photo gallery | satellite image) offered by GMAC Rivertowns Realty (MLS listing) for $650,000.

Given recent legislative actions to commence eminent domain procedings—for the purpose of constructing a new Department of Public Works facility (see: “Touring the Croton Municipal Garage”) and additional storage areas—against Greentree Realty LLC—the land owner of 1A Croton Point Avenue (satellite) and the former site of construction and debris transfer operator Metro Enviro (see: “Metro Enviro: A Photo Tour”)—the village might also consider looking at this property as a less costly alternative.

Currently, the Village of Croton-on-Hudson expects a completed appraisal of the 9.8 acre site—owned by Greentree Realty LLC—sometime in April, has ordered an environmental impact study (see: “Haste Makes Waste: Why We Need Public Input on Condemnation”) at a cost of $52,000—a requirement of eminent domain proceedings—and anticipates a decision from Supreme Court Justice Nicholai that may allow Northeast Interchange Railway—who recently puchased Metro Enviro from Allied Waste—to resume full operations as soon as mid-March.
