Tarrytown Trustees Weigh Options In General Motors Lawsuit

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Tarrytown village trustees have yet to decide whether or not they'll appeal a state judge's ruling in a lawsuit over the proposed General Motors redevelopment in Sleepy Hollow.

Village Administrator Michael Blau said trustees would be discussing the matter on Wednesday in an executive session of the Village Board, but he was not sure if any action would be taken.

A state judge ruled last week that Tarrytown's lawsuit against Sleepy Hollow lacked merit. Tarrytown filed the suit in June 2011 to try to block the proposed development, saying it would cause too much congestion on local roads.

Tarrytown trustees will meet at 7 p.m. at Village Hall with legal counsel in executive session to review their options, a public notice said. The closed-door session is permitted under New York State's open meetings law, which provides exceptions for litigation.

Tarrytown Mayor Drew Fixell said last week that no decision has been made as to whether officials will appeal the decision.

General Motors wants to turn the site of its former automotive assembly plant in Sleepy Hollow into a mixed-use residential, retail and dining area. Sleepy Hollow trustees have granted a special permit to redevelop the site, which sits vacant along the Hudson River.

Sleepy Hollow officials estimate the proposed development, called Lighthouse Landing, would bring in an additional 3,000 residents.
