Senior living community in Bedford draws fire

Residents in two Westchester County communities are speaking out against the development of a senior living community, citing quality of life issues.

The proposed community, called Bedford Park, has been in the works for years. The developer wants the Town of Bedford to rezone 12.5 acres at Route 172 and McLain Street near the Mount Kisco border to build town homes for people 55 years and older.

"There's a large contingent of people who live on McLain Street who are very concerned about the impacts," says Bedford Town Supervisor Lee Roberts.

Mount Kisco residents have also criticized the development, citing traffic and water supply concerns.

A public hearing on the development will be held June 8 in Bedford.
