During the regular meeting, a public hearing and vote will be held on the extension of the City’s moratorium on land use approvals in certain areas.
The moratorium only affects parcels in the R1-12.5 and R1-30 zoning districts that are listed as parkland in the City’s comprehensive plan, and aren’t owned by the City or White Plains School District. The areas include several local golf courses, like the former Ridgeway Country Club and Westchester Hills.

The City decided to impose the moratorium to study the comprehensive plan and land use regulations, and make necessary upgrades. As a result of the study, the City is proposing to create an Open Space Recreation District (OSRED) and implement amendments to its current zoning, land use and environmental regulations. The City will vote on the final scoping document for the (DEIS) regarding the OSRED and related amendments at Monday’s meeting.
