Release Date: February 13, 2013

The Greenburgh Town Board approved a local law at the Town Board meeting on February 13,2013 amending the zoning ordinance of the town by adding a definition of assisted living facilities and by creating a special permit criteria for such facilities. We amended the zoning map. We will allow up to 100 bedrooms to be constructed in an assisted living facility on four acre sites within 200 feet of a state or county road. The town will allow permits for facilities that accept medicaid. The Board has the right to deny permits to facilities if they have an adverse impact upon the town.

Brightview, an assisted living facility, is seeking to build a 3 story building off of Tarrytown Road (near the Sheraton/Marriott Hotels/Benedict Ave) near Tarrytown (unincorporated Greenburgh). The just approved law will enable Brightview to proceed with their application. The Town Board had many public discussions/hearings on the proposed zoning change before the new law was adopted.

On September 10,2012 I posted that Brightview plans to offer 20% discounts on assisted living facilitiy for 10 of the 90 proposed units plus six month rental discounts.


Supervisor Feiner,
On behalf of our client, Brightview Senior Living, I wanted to give you an update about the project. In light of the request that you and the Town Board made for our client to consider including an additional element of affordability into this exciting, assisted living project, Brightview has decided to offer two programs to address your articulated concerns.
First, Brightview is prepared to offer the “Greenburgh Charter Club.” This is a program that would extend up to six (6) months rental rate discounts (between $500 to $1,000 per month) for residents who make the move within the first 30 days of opening of the new Brightview at Greenburgh. That savings, which we anticipate would be made available to community members at the earliest possible date, could literally amount to $6,000.00 per resident!
Second, Brightview is prepared to offer up to ten (10) residents of moderate income levels within this 90 unit residential facility a reduced rental rate (approximately 20% of monthly charges). We think this second program is not only consistent with the spirit of the Town’s desire to facilitate reduced housing expenses for deserving individuals, but also would result in reducing the cost of food and assisted living services which are covered as part of the monthly rental charges.
We believe that with your help, these reduced rates and special discounts will be made available to Greenburgh residents. We look forward to discussing these programs with you and the Town Board at the Work Session meeting next Tuesday, September 11, 2012.
If you have any questions, or wish to further discuss this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.
David S. Steinmetz, Esq.
