PEEKSKILL-The fifth annual conference being staged by the Historic Hudson River Towns of Westchester consortium will feature a discussion of the proposed “Lighthouse Landing at Sleepy Hollow” project that involves the redevelopment of the former General Motors assembly plant.

Sleepy Hollow Mayor Philip Zegarelli will be among the featured speakers at the Sept. 13 event, Fifth Annual Planning Conference of Historic River Towns of Westchester. Zegarelli will discuss the latest developments in the project that will reshape this community’s future for years to come. The all-day conference begins at 8:30 a.m. at Crystal Bay Restaurant in Peekskill

On June 21, General Motors announced that Roseland Property Company of Short Hills, NJ, had been selected as the designated developer for the 99-acre-site situated nearby the Tappan Zee Bridge.

Although few specifics have been released on the Lighthouse Landing at Sleepy Hollow venture, Roseland Property officials have stated that any new development at the site would most likely include: a combination of rental and condominium housing, senior housing, retail and office space, a hotel and conference center and a marina. Another component of the development will be the incorporation of open space and public access to the Hudson River shoreline.

Another major development project to be discussed at the conference is “The Harbors at Haverstraw.” Martin Ginsburg, president of Ginsburg Development of Hawthorne, and James F. Balsley, project architect, will discuss the proposed revitalization of the village of Haverstraw in Rockland County.

The village’s master plan provides for activating water uses, increasing public access to the river shoreline, redeveloping abandoned bronwfield industrial sites, the development of new affordable housing for existing residents, increasing recreational opportunities and transportation access and creating a tourist destination on the village’s waterfront.

Ginsburg Development officials say that the residential housing component of the master plan that is currently being reviewed by the village, would include approximately 850 units of housing. Other major facets of the plan are a Public Promenade that would afford views of the Hudson River from abandoned brownfield industrial sites, a Hudson River Children’s Museum, a parking garage and the possible expansion of existing weekday ferry service to Westchester and New York City to weekends in order to bring in more tourists.

The keynote speaker at the conference will be Ann E. Breen, co-founder of The Waterfront Center, a non-profit education and urban planning organization that specializes in the study of waterfront preservation and redevelopment.
