In 2003 Trinity Presbyterian Church first announced plans to build a new church on a 526 – 530 Anderson Hill Road in Purchase. Since then the application has gone through several incarnations. For those 18 years PEPA has been contesting this application. The current application calls for using a 6,800-square-foot 1927 Tudor manor home that already exists on the site as well as building a 19,200-square-foot building. The site plan calls for 130 parking spaces with access to and from Anderson Hill Road via an existing driveway to the west and a new driveway to the east.
PEPA has remained steadfastly opposed to this current plan since it first appeared in 2014. Professional consultants (Harris Beach, Attorneys at Law and Louis Berger, Planning Consultants) were retained by PEPA. Their analyses revealed the project contained substantive and procedural deficiencies, as well as other issues that do not satisfy the requirements of the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA).
Below is a chronological (check spelling) record of letters that were sent by Harris Beach and The Louis Berger Group to address this topic.
