Six More Homes Could Be Demolished

72SheldrakeRoadWhile most will be focused on the Village election on Tuesday March 21, the Committee for Historic Preservation will meet that same night at 8 pm to consider the demolition of six more homes. The razing of homes has continued at a brisk pace this past year as the Village has not changed any of the preservation or building code that could limit what can be torn down or be built. In addition, though the Committee for Historic Preservation did vote to preserve several homes, legal challenges have been made to appeal both decisions.

Here are six more homes that are on the agenda for Tuesday night's meeting. Applications have been filed for permission to demolish them.

175 Nelson Road built in 1909- This home was first on the agenda of the January meeting of the Committee, and held over until March. It was at one time the home of Scarsdale Fire Captain GW Smith and the garage is said to have been the first firehouse in Scarsdale.

There comes a time when an old house needs more work than what it's worth, and the smartest financial decision is to knock down. That may not be what most want to hear, but most would agree that nobody wants to be the person to spend more money fixing up a there house, than what they could sell it for.

Just To Clarify...

"It was at one time the home of Scarsdale Fire Captain GW Smith and the garage is said to have been the first firehouse in Scarsdale."

The Garage in question was said to "possibly" be the firehouse stable building (where horse was kept) and was moved to this property when the original firehouse was rebuilt.

The article might lead someone to believe it was the actual firehouse building which is not the case.

The BAR has absolutely nothing to do with demolition or historic designation..

Quoting frustrated homeowner:
I am surprised and frustrated by the 6 more houses allowed to be demolished while some houses, 12 Dolma being one that comes to mind from previous posts, are not allowed to be demolished. It seems unfair to have some allowed, while others are prohibited based on what a few BAR members think is historic value. Everyone that owns their house in Scarsdale should be allowed to do what they want to their house, they OWN it and pay taxes on it. If the BAR wants the village 'look' to be taken into consideration, I understand that. I don't want a bunch of monstrosities being built with no green space/property appeal, oh wait, that is happening already.

Your frustrations are shared by many residents, but at least get the facts right regarding the limitations and responsibilitie s of the BAR.

The BAR doesn't have any role in the decision to allow demolition or not of any property in the Village. The role falls on the Committee for Historic Presevation (CHP). If the CHP finds that a house should be preserved, the applicant can appeal to the Trustees.

The BAR has not authority to reduce the size of a new house or addition. The applicant can build to the limits of the code. All the BAR can do is try to persuade / convince the builder / architect to make changes to design a house to appear visually smaller. Not an easy task. The real issue is the code that allows these large houses on small lots. Lip service has been provided by the current and past mayors / trustees while taking no real steps to address the issue.

Finally, you have the right to complain, but please understand the issue before you do. Better yet, get involved with one of the Land Use Boards.

I hope the homes are not torn down.Some are over 100 years old.
Older homes makes Scarsdale a special place to live.
