Relay For Life


The case for a sixteen year old from Guatemala who attempted to enroll in Mamaroneck High School has a major development. The teenager had been denied access to MHS due to his having already completed the highest level of education in his native country. The New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) appealed the decision to the state on behalf of the student. Earlier this week, the state education commissioner Mary Ella Elia decided that MHS must allow the student to enroll at the school, at least temporarily. Gisella Marroquin, the regional organizer for the NYCLU explained to The Local Live the Guatemalan educational system to help us understand some of the confusion surrounding the case. The civil liberties lawyer then explained the process of appealing the student’s decision to the state. At this time, the decision is only temporary, and will not impact the final determination, which will be decided in the coming months. Debbie Manetta, a spokesperson for the Mamaroneck School District, said, “We continue to believe strongly that all children have the right to a public education. However, we recognize that in accordance with the Commissioner of Education’s Regulations, we are expected to make determinations of eligibility that may serve to exclude some students from enrolling in our school system”.  We keep you informed with any new developments in this story.

Let’s Talk about School Budgets with Two Superintendents


In our last program, we informed you about a controversy surrounding possibly discriminatory housing practices in some Westchester towns and villages. A new development was added this week when a New York Post article labeled Mamaroneck as a “leafy area” and implied that it was an example of a homogeneous New York suburb. The article, which criticized the Obama administration’s attempt to encourage diversity in wealthy suburbs, mentioned that the fair market rent for a one-bedroom apartment in New York City would be lower than rentals in suburbs such as Mamaroneck. The Village of Mamaroneck, led by Mayor Norman Rosenblum, is fighting back. In an open letter to the Editorial Board of the New York Post, Rosenblum called the article “exasperating and ironic” and invited the Board to review and re-assess its claim. We will keep you posted as this story continues to unfold.

Flooding Update


Seven Westchester municipalities, including Larchmont should be sued by the federal government, according to a report made last week by attorney James Johnson, the monitor overseeing the implementation of a 2009 settlement between Westchester and an anti-discrimination group over affordable housing. In 2009, Westchester County was sued for taking Department of Housing Development block grants without spending it on fair and affordable housing. In the settlement, Westchester agreed to build 750 units of affordable housing in areas that were shown to be primarily white in the 2010 census. Additionally, the county said that it would challenge municipal zoning laws which may work to discourage low-income housing. Many communities, including the Town of Mamaroneck, have fulfilled those duties, adopting an inclusionary model that requires that 10% of new developments include affordable housing. However, Johnson is saying that that some other communities, including Larchmont, have not changed their zoning laws and must adopt this inclusionary model. Needless to say, Johnson and County Executive Rob Astorino have not agreed on this matter since Astorino was elected to the position in 2009. In a sit-down discussion with LoHud this past December, Astorino maintained his position that the county has no power over building permits, and accused the Department of Housing and Development of holding a “gun to their heads”. In the meantime, Johnson has accused Astorino of actively deceiving the public with claims that the project, which is planned to cost over $50 million, could end up costing a billion dollars. The momentum currently resides with the county after an appeals court ruling last year that deemed the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s withholding of funds without judicial oversight as illegal. Astorino was very pleased with the decision, stating that it proved that there had been no wrongdoing by the county.

At the April 11th Village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustees meeting, Mayor Norman Rosenblum updated the community about the Army Corps of Engineers Flood Mitigation Plan. As previously reported, the $70 million dollar project, which began in 2009, wants to help prevent flooding around the areas that are close to the Mamaroneck and Sheldrake Rivers. In order for the project to be in effect, it needs to be consistent with the Local Waterfront Rehabilitation Program or LWRP. The document consists of 44 policies, which aim to promote a balance between economic development and preservation of the Village of Mamaroneck coastal resources. After the Harbor Coastal Zone Management Commission suggested that the Army Corps Project is inconsistent with many policies of the LWRP. In a March 28th public forum regarding the issue, residents spoke for over 3 hours about their support and concerns toward the project. The Harbor Coastal Zone Management Commission of HCZMC is not the only one that has a consistency vote on the Army Corps Plan. The Department of State, or DOS, and the Village of Mamaroneck must also vote. Mayor Rosenblum stated that the Department of State did not find the flooding plan inconsistent with the LWRP, and requested more information in order to make a decision. After additional information is provided to the Department of State, the Army Corps of Engineers will need to submit a formal consistency determination. As of yet, the requested additional information has not been sent. Following the comments from residents, the Board unanimously passed a resolution to write a letter of support to the Department of State. The letter requests the DOS to inform the Village and the HCZM Commission of their decision.

Screen Shot 2016-04-08 at 4.12.23 PMAt the latest Village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustees meeting, more than twenty Mamaroneck residents voiced their opinions and concerns to the Village Court about resolutions to the flooding issue in our area. The discussion lasted for over three hours. Resident reactions flared regarding The Harbor Coastal Zone Management Commission’s recommendation to the Department of State. The Commission suggested that the $70 million dollar Army Corps of Engineers Flood Mitigation Plan is inconsistent with our Local Waterfront Rehabilitation Program, also known as LWRP. They claimed that the plan is inconsistent with several policies. What exactly is the LWRP and what effect does it have on the Army Corps Project? The LWRP is a document that was originally adopted in 1984. It consists of 44 policies which aim to promote a balance between economic development and preservation of our coastal resources. If the New York Department of State finds inconsistencies with our local LWRP, the Army Corps of Engineers flood mitigation plan will not move forward. Following the comments from the public, Mayor Norman Rosenblum and the Board decided that they require more information in order to make a decision on what will most benefit the community. Village Manager, Richard Slingerland told the Local Live that the project’s study stage has cost the Village about $8.3 million dollars.
