Tuckahoe approves controversial hotel development on Marbledale Road

The village Planning Board has approved a controversial plan to build a hotel and a restaurant on a contaminated former landfill site on Marbledale Road, but opponents pledged they would keep fighting.

"This is a travesty," said Rachel Zolottev, the head of Marbledale Road Environmental Coalition, after the board's 3-2 approval of the plan this week.  "We have over 2,700 members of the community who have asked for an environmental impact statement. How they could ignore all those people is an absolute shame."

Zolottev was referring to a petition that urged the board to conduct a full environmental assessment for the project, rescinding its "conditional negative declaration" under the state Environmental Quality Review Act.


Soil and groundwater samples from the site were found to be contaminated with a variety of hazardous chemicals, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).
