FASNY: Public Hearings Begin on School Development Project

Among other proposals, the school says it is planning to make busing of students mandatory to help cut down on traffic.

White Plains residents on both sides of the issue spoke before the City Council earlier this week on the proposed develop at the defunct Ridgeway Country Club by the French American School of New York.

The Westchester County Business Journal reports that the proposed school would generate more than $1 million in annual tax revenue to the city, but that opposition still remains over the traffic and the project's size and scope.

School officials have amended the proposal to cap the enrollment at 950 students, instead of 1,200, and are making additional moves in an attempt to mitigate residents' concerns.

The public hearings are slated to continue in August and September, writes reporter Leif Skodnick.

Why nothing written about the Mayor and Kirkpatrick stuffing their campaign coffers with cash from those associated with FASNY? No violations of the Attorney’s Disciplinary Rules, like DR8-101 [1200.42] “Action as a Public Official”? sure seems like it IMHO. See all the money and movements on the NYS Bd of Elections website - you cannot make this up!! TIME TO BREAK UP THE democRAT MACHINE - a one party tyranny exists in White Plains - this is no good for our Zoning Laws and lifestyle - absolutely no good.

Dan, I brought the campaign donations up last year an no one seems to care. Many people are willing to overlook certain facts and make excuses to keep the one party rule in our city.

let's hope the sheeple wake up. The "Year 2001 committee" was shut down due to the daylight. Maybe these 2 will be precluded from a vote on the project. This could get messy.
