Mount Pleasant residents fight housing complex proposal

News 12

A Mount Pleasant Zoning Board meeting turned into a heated battle over a proposed housing development Monday night, as residents gave local officials an earful on a project they say will change the neighborhood for the worse.

Residents tell News 12 Westchester that their main concerns about the proposed housing complex on Columbus Avenue are traffic and taxes.

News 12 is told the property is currently owned by religious organization Legion of Christ and that developer Barker Residential has applied to buy the land between 582 and 590 Columbus Ave.

A representative of Barker Residential has confirmed the pursuit of a 73-lot cluster subdivision, along with two additional proposed lots.
