Hampshire has been trying to get land use approvals to build homes on the 106-acre property for more than a decade, over the objections of several residents in the wealthy Orienta neighborhood on Long Island Sound.
By refusing to allow any housing, Hampshire Recreation claims in a May 6 lawsuit, the Village of Mamaroneck has in effect taken the property.
The bases for denying the project "were merely … rationalizations for a predetermined negative result that the planning board had committed itself to long before issuing (its) findings,” the petition states.
The village was “continually moving the goal posts,” the developer argued, and was refusing the accept any version of its environmental report.
The village is “continually moving the goal post,” according to a petition filed Nov. 22 asking Westchester Supreme Court to compel Mamaroneck to act.
