lease approved for game on

The Greenburgh Town Board voted 4-0 tonight to approve a 15 year lease (subject to permissive referendum) with Game On to operate an indoor sports facility (soccer/lacrosse playing fields) at the abandoned Frank's nursery off of Dobbs Ferry Road. The lease that was approved is accessible by this link:

Members of the Town Board have agreed to schedule a referendum on  election day Tuesday, November 6th (election day) to provide the voters with the opportunity to approve or reject the lease.  A public discussion on the referendum (and a Town Board vote to schedule the referendum for November 6) will take place on Wednesday, August 29th at 7:30 PM at Town Hall.

Game On officials met with me tonight and expressed a desire to immediately start the phase II environmental site assessment of the property. A phase II is an intrusive investigation which collects original samples of soil to analyze for quantitative values of various contaminants. After the phase II test results are in we will have a better appreciation as to the extent of the remediation of the contaminants that must take place. I support the immediate testing.
