WPCNR SOUTH END TIMES. SEPTEMBER 8, 2014 UPDATED 11:30 A.M. E.D.T.:
The continuing White Plains Common Council Public Hearing on the French American School of New York proposal for a Special Permit to build a 5 building campus and nature conservancy, with entrance off North Street, and its corallary hearing on the the closure of Hathway Lane will resume this evening at White Plains High School at 6:30 P.M.
The hearing will only hear persons who have not spoken and commented at either of the two concurrent hearings previously wishing to address the Common Council and they are required to sign in to be on schedule to speak beginning at 5 P.M.
The Mayor’s Office confirmed to WPCNR Monday morning that if a person has spoken at either of the concurrent hearings previously, or at both concurrent hearings, they will not be allowed to speak at this evening’s meeting, because the meeting tonight “is considered a continuation of the hearing.”
This third “continuation” of the hearings was originally moved to September 8 from September 2 after summer-long pressure placed on City Hall by the Gedney Association and critics of the French School proposal, complaining that many could not speak at the September 2 date, that date being the day after Labor Day. City Hall bowed to the pressure and moved the hearing to tonight to the larger, air-conditioned venue, the White Plains High School Auditorium.
This morning a video titled FASNY:IT’S NOT A DONE DEAL made its appearance on You Tube depicting the Gedney Farms fight against the project. It may be seen at
