North Broadway Re-Zoning

The Board of Trustees has been considering revisions to the zoning for the larger properties along North Broadway, since June 2019. In updating the Village's Comprehensive Plan, the Comprehensive Plan Committee specifically recommended the addition of new uses for these properties.

The office and institutional uses that currently exist are through special permits and variances granted many years ago. The Comprehensive Plan Committee felt that it was important to add uses that are more consistent with what is currently there. This is a proactive effort to set the zoning in the area without current applications from any developers.

As originally recommended in the Comprehensive Plan, some of the more significant new uses included multi-family residential (including single-family attached, but clustered in order to maximize open space), assisted living facilities (of a fixed density), offices, boutique hotels, small practice medical offices, and restaurants.

In October 2020, the Board of Trustees, released a new draft of the proposed zoning that reduced the number of new uses proposed for the area. The new uses now include primarily multi-family residential and offices.

The public hearing was opened on November 2, 2020 and is still open. It will continue on November 16, 2020 at 7pm. If you are interested in commenting on the proposed zoning, please attend the next public hearing or send your comments in advance to: Lawrence Schopfer, Village Administrator at 85 Main St., Irvington, NY 10533 or by e-mail to LSchopfer@irvingtonny.gov.
