4' J V ' THE JOURNAL-NEWS, WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 1973 5B Downzoning is opposed in .Stony Point house per acre. But the planning board feels the town can benefit more if the land is zoned for average density; this would give the town about 18 acres for parks and recreation use. Without average density, the town would get no more than two acres for the same purpose, according to Keter A. Anderson, town engineer. The big gripe of protesters was a fear that if the planning board began to "down zone rural residential areas for any developer, then the town would go to hell." "What's the sense of telliflg people they livt? in a rural resi dential area if you turn around and change the zone?"one resident asked. But the protesters were comforted by the fact that the planning board failed to act on the matter because of legal technicalities. One Popken victory which may have been scored was the tentative settlement of Mrs. Mildred Gurran's estate on Washburn Lane. Popken said there were no serious questions raised by board members to the estate's being developed for 54 homes. A little more than two acres will be given to the town in lieu of money. According to the planning board, the town is benefitting greatly by these two acres. Supervisor Harold Grune said the town recently received a report that showed the necessary elimination of the pumping station would cost $36,000 but the two-acre parcel wouldallow the town to divert sewage from the pumping station directly to Wash-bum's Lane by way of an easement already procured from the developer. Fritz Popken said the heavy flood waters which are currently causing drainage problems for nearby residents can be solved by impounding the waters with a dam, an action the town will be able to do once it owns the land. "There is one other acre which is not too easy to build on which contains white oaks and mammouth tulip trees that we thought should be preserved," Popken said. ; s- V J. -t By MARK ABUSAMRa Staff Writer Stony Point residents are holding fast to their convictions that average density development permits issued by the town planning board would cause the "downfall" of their , town. 1 The board so far has rejected more average density nous-1 ing programs than it has accepted, but is still considering average density to be suitable ; for the proposed Fawn Ridge and Cedar Pond Knolls developments. At Tuesday night's board meeting, there were three public hearings on which no conclusive decisions were made. Residents took so much time attacking the planning board's strategy that average density would be good for the town in some instances and bad in others, that the board on the future never got around to deciding on the future of any proposed developments. The 9.6 acre tract called Cedar Knolls, located on the new section of Route 210, would include 25 single-family homes, to be built by the North Rockland Construction Co. The planning board wants to grant an average density permit to the developer, meaning the houses would be built clos er together, thus leaving the town 2.3 acres for park use. If the developer was to build each house on one-third acre, which is the present zone, then the town would only be deeded one acre for the land-in-lieu-of-money ordinance. According to planning board Chairman Fritz Popken, the 2.3 acres would be used to pre-serve the brook running through the land and the greenbelt which borders both sides of the brook. The board resolved that the town board make the decision on whether to allow average density. This is scheduled to be on the town board's agenda at tonight's meeting. The resident participation came to a head during discussion of the proposed Fawn Ridge development. Fawn Ridge is currently zoned rural residental, or one 54-story hotel set for NYC NEW YORK (AP) - Mayor John V. Lindsay and Atlanta architect John C. Portman unveiled plans Wednesday for the tallest, most spectacular hotel in the city's history a $150 million, 54-story building that Lindsay believes will add to a renaissance of the Times Square area. The 2,020-room convention hotel on the west side of Broadway between 45th and 46th Streets will feature glass-enclosed cafes at the ground ' and roof levels, a seven-story retail shopping center, a 1,050-seat theater, and a revolving restaurant overlooking the city. Twelve glass-enclosed elevators rising through swimming pools in the shopping area and the 13th floor hotel lobby will be located in the hotel's immense open 48-story "atrium" or center court. Guests' rooms will be located on the 14th through 49th floors.
