Part of Redevelopment Plan to Create Forever Wild Green Space and Ensure Storm Water Management for the Community
Old Chatham, NY (March 30, 2017) – Effective Tuesday, March 28, 2017, Sleepy Hollow Lake (SHL) closed on the purchase of 122 storm water lots from the Greene County Legislature (GCL) and received a quit claim deed for the property.
Over the last few years, SHL’s Association of Property Owners Board of Directors, together with the GCL, has been working diligently to effect this purchase. “We are extremely pleased to have finalized the tax lot disposition agreement with Greene County Legislature which is a key component of our overall revitalization and redevelopment program, “ said President of Sleepy Hollow Lake Andy Gauzza. “We consider the $40K we paid for the property well spent as it will further our conservation efforts and enhance storm water management for the community,” said Gauzza.
Located 120 miles north of New York City in one of the most beautiful areas of the Hudson River Valley, Sleepy Hollow Lake is a 2,200-acre residential community surrounding a two-and-a-half-mile man-made lake.
