It is incredible that FASNY is still causing our city to use its financial and human resources to fight their proposal which is totally unsuited to our residential community.

One has to wonder: How do dense municipalities save rare and magical land parcels that sparkle like crown jewels?

At 1,200 pupils this would be twice the size of Ridgeway and more than that of Post Road, each of which is a traffic and pollution (idling) abomination twice a day.

...this proposed use is definitely NOT supported by the City’s comprehensive plan for the neighborhood which as you know should and in fact must be the guide used for ALL interpretations of the City’s zoning code.

If it is approved, will you really devote your money, time and energy to this large and quintessentially diverse city or will you and yours rush for the Hutch every afternoon?

The signs worn by the pro FASNY people saying "yes to schools and yes to open space" are very misleading. The residents of the southern part of White Plains are pro schools but not a 1,200 student school on Ridgeway in the middle of a quiet residential neighborhood.

...has research been done to see if we really need another school in White Plains, especially one with interests developed by those outside our community?

The talk of a "conservancy" is also troubling to me. ...they have changed what they said the nature of the space would be and who it would be available to so many times that it is obvious they will describe it as whatever it needs to be for them to obtain their permit.

I think of FASNY as a group of Pinocchios. Their collective noses must be growing as they spin their ever changing plans, while they try to gain acceptance from The City of White Plains, its residents and its business community.

One of the two council members who voted ‘No’ [on FEIS completion] based her decision on her qualifications and experience as a professional urban planner. That tells me a lot; it tells me that she can clearly anticipate the negative impact FASNY will have on all of our lives.

These are determined, well-financed vultures, with strong political connections.
