WPCNR WHITE PLAINS LAW JOURNAL. By John F. Bailey. November 19, 2013:
The Gedney Association of White Plains has filed a Notice of Claim against the City of White Plains.
WPCNR has put in a request for the documents filed last week from the city. The Notice of Claim is a formality that has to be filed before an entity proceeds to file a legal action against the city.
The Gedney Association has been lobbying the city to reject the French American School of New York special permit that would allow the school to build a consolidated campus for their three schools in Westchester County on the former defunct Ridgeway Country Club Property in White Plains. The hearings and environmental review have been going on for two and a half years since the school purchased the property in January 2011.
Sources told WPCNR that Gedney would only sue if the project was approved. The city continues to review the Final Environmental Impast Statement deemed complete by the city in October. A date has not been set by the city for a meeting at which the Common Council would make their Findings Statement.
