Opponents of Ridge Hill hope to overturn Yonkers City Council vote
The $600 million Ridge Hill development project on the Greenburgh-Yonkers border got the OK from the City Council, but opponents are hoping to overturn that vote.
The city has been trying to develop the 81-acre site between the New York Sate Thruway and the Sprain Brook Parkway for the last three years. Under normal circumstances Friday's vote by the Yonkers City Council would allow the developer Forest City Ratner to move forward. However, three members of the City Council are hoping to nullify that vote and send everything back to square one. They are hoping that a lawsuit, which was filed after a council majority changed the way projects get city approval, will once again halt the project.Both sides will submit papers to Supreme Court Justice Nicolas Collabella on January 6 and then await his decision.
