WPCNR FASNY NEWS. From the Mayor’s Office. August 25, 2014:
The City Clerk announced today that the third concurrent hearings on the French American School of New York application for a Special Permit to build a 5 building campus on the former Ridgeway Country Club and its concurrent hearing on the closure of Hathwa lane will move to the much larger venue, the White Plains High School auditorium on Monday, September 8, beginning at 6:30 P.M. Citizens wishing to speak must sign up at 5 P.M. in the audtorium lobby. Citizens who have already spoken at previous hearings may not speak again.
The change comes after three months of intense lobbying and e-mailing by Gedney Association members who claimed the Common Council Chambers were too small and witnessing the hearings on closed circuit television on screens in the halls of the city hall rotunda was hot, inconvenient and inhibited attendance.
