Alleging that New Castle is discriminating against housing options, conducting a “sham” review process and limiting its use of property, Chappaqua Crossing developer Summit/Greenfield has filed suit against the town, asking for damages.
Separate lawsuits were filed in federal and state court on Friday, both under the name of SG Chappaqua B, LLC. Both name the town as a defendant, while the federal suit adds Supervisor Barbara Gerrard and councilmen Robin Stout and Michael Wolfensohn (in the official capacities) as co-defendants
“Despite recent statements by the Town Supervisor that a Final Environmental Impact Statement will be adopted in March, the Town Board’s well-established history of missed deadlines and its demonstrated unwillingness to deal with the serious economic and social responsibility issues confronting the town has led the owners to turn to the courts to seek relief and damages,” the developer states in a press release announcing the suit.
