While we've all been focused on recovering from Sandy and preparing for the election, there are other issues coming to the fore.

The revised proposal from Continuum to build an assisted living facility in Irvington is the subject of a public hearing at the Planning Board Wednesday, November 7 at 8:00pm.

For those who may have missed it, Continuum submitted a revised plan to the Planning Board last month, after the Planning Board referred to their earlier submission as a "failed plan".

The full documents are available on the Turner Miller website.

For those without the time to read through the documents, there is a short summary on the Protect Irvington NY site. In general, the revised plan shifts some parking and common areas below ground, but the overall size and scope of the project have not been reduced at all. The plans still call for a 105,000 square foot facility with 168 residents in 121 units.

Please be sure to attend this important public hearing to learn more about the plan and to ensure your voice is heard.
