Letter to the Editor: Statement from Chappaqua Crossing in response to NCNOW Op-Ed by Gregg Bresner
July 2, 2010
by Geoff Thompson
Gregg Bresner’s Op-Ed article (see Op-Ed: Baffled by parents’ lack of awareness and concern over rezoning of Chappaqua Crossing by Gregg Bresner, NewCastleNOW.org, June 28, 2010) on the impact of the Chappaqua Crossing plan on the Chappaqua schools is completely off base.
His analysis is refuted by the School Board’s own experts and grossly misstates the financial impacts of our project. And by ignoring the large excess capacity already existing in the Chappaqua Schools – which is expected to increase in future years – Mr. Bresner irresponsibly seeks to frighten parents and taxpayers into opposing the single best opportunity to improve the Town’s and School District’s challenging financial condition.
