<br /> <br /> <br />To: Robert I. Goodman, Chairman, and the <br />Planning Board of the Village of Rye Brook <br /> <br />Date: December 6, 2018 <br /> <br />Subject: 259 North Ridge Street – Subdivision, Zoning Petition <br />and Map Amendment, and Revised Site Plan Application <br /> <br />As requested, we reviewed revised site plans and additional and revised information <br />submitted in support of a three-lot subdivision, and a site plan and petition to re-zone <br />Lot 1 of the subdivision into the FAH District, submitted by Lazz Development (Louis <br />Larizza), contract vendee, on behalf of the property owner, Daniel Greto. The original <br />site plan application submitted for Lot 1 in September of 2015, sought to construct <br />eight Fair and Affordable Housing (AFFH) units. The newly revised development plan <br />for Lot 1 reduces the number of housing units to a total of four AFFH units divided <br />into two, two-family homes. The subdivision remains unchanged, and, in addition to <br />Lot 1, still includes two lots (Lot 2 and Lot 3) each with one single-family market-rate <br />home. The property is situated at the intersection of West Ridge Drive and North <br />Ridge Street within the R-15 District and the North Ridge Street Scenic Road Overlay <br />District, Section 135.35, Block 1, Lot 11 on the Town of Rye Tax Assessor’s Map. <br /> <br />Property Description <br /> <br />The 3.96-acre (172,620 square-foot) property is partially developed with a one-story <br />single-family home, driveway and curb cut, and a terrace at the back of the home in <br />the rear yard. Behind the home, the lot slopes down very steeply to the northeast <br />from the elevation of North Ridge Street to approximately the elevation of the rear <br />yards of homes along Eagles Bluff and Rock Ridge Drive. The site drains to wetlands <br />located in the woodlands below the existing home and from there into a pipe within a <br />drainage easement across one of the properties on Eagles Bluff. Outside the <br />landscaped area around the existing home, the lot is naturally wooded, with <br />watercourses and wetlands mostly located in areas of lower elevations. <br /> <br />Project Description <br /> <br />The Applicant’s latest revised proposal is for a three-lot subdivision to create two, <br />
