The Young Companies, LLC, builders of Huguenot Hills, will appear before the New Rochelle Planning Board for a Special Permit to increase profits on their 601 North Avenue property. The Young Companies have defied the City of New Rochelle and Huguenot Hills homeowners, who have issued violations for the absence of gutters on the Huguenot Hills complex. The failure to complete the roof drainage & storm water management is a violation of the approved plans and violates state, county & local codes. Young has delayed the completion of the gutter system because he can’t afford to pay Consolidated Edison the funds to wrap the electric service wires to allow safe completion of the drainage system. There are many questions raised; How did this building pass final inspection and receive a Certificate of Occupancy? Who was the building inspector who performed and signed-off on the final inspection? Why has the city allowed Young to thumb his nose at the violation and not demand he make homeowners whole immediately? So while Young increases his profits the general public must walk on the opposite side of the street during storms and the city will continue to close the sidewalk due to hazardous falling ice spears from the improperly drained roof.
The following is the official agenda listing;
ITEM # 4 — SPECIAL PERMIT APPROVAL (PUBLIC HEARING)
4.1 PB 4-12: Application by the Young Companies, LLC, Owner, for a special permit to
construct an outdoor dining area in the existing, enclosed rear yard of the existing
building; no changes proposed to the rear façade or the lighting plan located at 601
North Avenue, Block 994, Lot 46 in a NA zoned district.
