The Gedney Association, reacting this morning has sent out an e-mail message declaring this is the “Final Vote” on FASNY
WPCNR sent an e-mail to White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach asking about the nature of the meeting, if a vote is planned,  whether discussion is planned for the meeting, if The French American School of New York will speak to issues raised by the Mayor himself in the June 29 Meeting on FASNY on the impact of longterm construction; Councilman John Martin’s being troubled by the closing of Hathaway Lane; Councilwoman Nadine Hunt-Robinson’s concern that the mitigation outlined by the resolution does not make the neighborhood impact worse than if the project was not built; and the numerous objections of Councilwoman Milagros Lecuona and Councilman Dennis Krolian.
WPCNR also asked the Mayor if Susan Habel, the major consultant for the city on the project will speak on the matter; if the matter can be tabled; if the question will be called for a vote.The Gedney Association is issued this e-mail this morning:

The Common Council has scheduled a Special Meeting to vote on the FASNY application for Wednesday, August 5th at 7:00 PM.   This is a critical Meeting in which we can expect a decision on the application after 5 long years.  We urge you to attend this meeting and arrive early to make sure our supporters are able to be present in the Council meeting room.
