I disagree with Mr. Crawford when he states that the project will "make sure that our village maintains the quality of life we moved here for." I believe the very opposite will happen. How can adding 600-800 cars per hour on our narrow and winding streets, and 200 new apartments plus hotel, etc. help to maintain the quality of life in Dobbs Ferry?

I disagree with Tina Spire when she says “It is the kind of hook Dobbs Ferry needs to become a truly unique destination.” Dobbs Ferry is a quaint, unique village. Many of us moved here because we found the village to be charming and picturesque. We loved the small town feel.
The proposed development would rob the village of all of those qualities. It will become the very opposite of unique. It will become another planned shopping destination with big name stores. It will be another Ridge Hill, Central Park Avenue, Long Island strip mall, etc. This project will add to the urban sprawl that we were trying to escape when we moved here. Certainly, those who choose to live in that type of environment can find it in any number of towns. Why ruin ours? View Comment
