The Village of Brewster recently conducted a and some properties were identified as being in a designated blight area.
Blighted areas may become part of an Urban Renewal Plan or Project, which may ultimately involve the condemnation of properties located in a designated blight area and the relocation of residents and/or businesses located therein.
While the Blight Determination Study was conducted in accordance with Open Meetings Law, duly noticed and adhering to appropriate sections of the Urban Renewal Law, we reached out to affected property owners through a letter to ensure they have an opportunity to learn more about what this designation means and what might happen in the future.
To accomplish that goal, we are holding an informational meeting on Feb. 8, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at (50 Main Street in Brewster). The focus of this meeting is to address this matter specifically with the owners of properties identified as being located in a designated blight area.
