Building Development

Mamaroneck, NY: (Jan-15-08) The Westchester Day School brought charges against the village of Mamaroneck, after being denied permission to erect a new building on its campus. The suit, brought by the 60-year-old Orthodox Jewish School, stated that the village denied its application to add a fifth building to its 25-acre campus. Sources close to the case stated that in October 2007, a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit found that the village had shown an arbitrary blindness to the facts when it denied permission for the construction. As part of a settlement reached between the two parties, the village of Mamaroneck has agreed to pay $4.75 million to the Westchester Day School, resolving the five-year-old lawsuit.
