Posted: Updated:
WHITE PLAINS -

Developers in White Plains are asking the White Plains Common Council for the creation of a new residential zoning district before beginning a new development project.

They say they plan to use property to build rental apartments, academic housing for Pace University law students and an assisted living facility.

Some residents say they are concerned about increase traffic and environmental hazards.

“They want to build it on top of the dumpsite, and the people in the neighborhood are extremely concerned about that,” says Ilene Stockel, of White Plains.

White Plains city officials told News 12 any decision as far as rezoning is still months away.

In a statement, a spokesman for the property owners said an independent study confirmed the fill area does not pose a health threat, and that it can be safely redeveloped under the oversight of the New York state Department of Environmental Conservation.
