Bracing for impact NUCLEAR PLANT CLOSING WILL HAVE CHILLING EFFECT ON ECONOMY, COUNTY AND BUSINESS LEADERS SAY BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH firstname.lastname@example.org
ews that Indian Point Energy Center will shut down both its nuclear reactors by 2021 came via a press release from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo at 9 a.m. on Jan. 9. The news was confirmed shortly after by Entergy Corp., the plant’s operator. Three days earlier, The New York Times citing an unnamed source reported that a deal to close the plant had been reached. While Cuomo, a Democrat in his second term, cheered the future shutdown of a plant he long deemed a threat to a densely populated region, responses from
political and business leaders in Westchester were much more grave. The closing of the 2,000-megawatt Buchanan nuclear power plant has local business groups – which had called for relicensing of the plant – preparing for a potential hole in the region’s power supply and economy the plant’s absence could create. “It’s a huge, huge blow,” said John Ravitz, executive vice president of The Business Council of Westchester. “And now the question really is to the governor, ‘OK you closed the plant, now what?’” In a press conference on Jan. 9, officials with Entergy said the plant would be kept secure and operational through 2021 and that its current 1,000 employees
would be kept until that time, then offered relocation to other Entergy facilities. The state has offered assistance as well for affected employees. Elected officials and business leaders in the county spent the days after the announcement calling for more information on how Indian Point’s closure will affect electric rates and reliability, the taxes to the town, school district and county, as well as on the environmental impact of shutting down a plant that has operated for more than four decades. “A lot has to be sorted out,” said Bill Mooney, president and CEO of the Westchester County Association business group. “It’s » IMPACT, page 6

Astorino pledges to veto ban on gun shows BY BILL HELTZEL email@example.com
estchester legislators on Jan. 9 voted to ban gun shows on county property, but County Executive Robert Astorino pledged to veto the measure. “The use of county-owned
facilities to host shows which promote weapons, as well as other symbols of violence and hatred, is not what we as a county should be doing,” said legislator Ken Jenkins of Yonkers, who first proposed the ban in 2010. “We don’t see anything wrong with gun shows,” Astorino spokesman Phil Oliva said a few hours before the vote.
He said gun shows allow residents to express their First Amendment right to assembly and 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. The ban passed by a 9-8 vote. The board of legislators also agreed to hold a public hearing on a Republican-sponsored law that would require gun show operators at any venue in the county to follow stringent safety procedures. The Democrats’ ban was prompted by the Gun and Knife Show, scheduled for Jan. 21-22 at the Westchester County Center, the first gun show to be held on county property since 2012. Astorino had pledged not to allow gun shows, Democratic legislators said, and they were caught
by surprise when they heard about the January show. Former County Executive Andrew Spano had banned gun shows as a matter of policy, after two teenagers killed 12 students and a teacher at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999. Astorino rescinded that policy in 2010, but shifted his position after the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 children and six adults were killed. “We had a handshake agreement not to bring back gun shows after Newtown,” Michael Kaplowitz, chairman of the board of legislators said about an arrangement he had with Astorino.
He said the administration brought back the show “surreptitiously,” by not posting the event on the county website. Oliva said Astorino never agreed to a permanent ban. “It was a pause or a postponement because of Sandy Hook.” He said the public has been well aware of the gun show for more than a month because it has been advertised on the County Center marquee. Democratic legislators cited research that links gun shows to illegal activities. The events, they said, can attract people who make transactions outside of the venue to avoid criminal background » GUNS, page 6

to be close to (the company’s headquarters in) New York City.” Opening the restaurant in Rye Brook also allowed Dig Inn to work with the same suppliers and partners it uses to serve food in its Manhattan restaurants. “It’s not as if we decided to open in the suburbs of Chicago, where we would have to start from scratch with an entirely new supply chain,” he said. The company also hopes to build on the customer loyalty and social media buzz its inner-city restaurants have spurred. “Brand recognition when you’re entering the market is important,” he said. “A lot of commuters that work in the city live in Rye or in Westchester County, and they’re familiar with the brand. Here, at least some of the community knows who we are, and they’re excited for us to open.” Though Dig Inn’s core offerings will remain similar to its inner-city menu items, the new Rye Brook restaurant will feature a number of changes from its other restaurants. “As we’ve expanded, we’ve started thinking of locations not just as replicas of prior locations, but more sort of miniature communities with their own nuances,” he said. The 3,200-square-foot restaurant is about 50 percent larger than most of Dig Inn’s other eateries. Unlike the chain’s New York City restaurants, where “every square foot matters, and you really try to squeeze stuff in because it’s so expensive,” Eskin refers to the layout of the Rye Brook location as “one giant open kitchen” that runs the length of the restaurant. The spot’s front area features a pick-up counter and cafe serving prepared foods and long communal tables, while the rear of the restaurant is home to a larger dining room with 15-foot ceilings, a skylight and seating for 38 diners. Customers can also choose to sit at a green marble top bar, which offers a selection of beer, wine and specialty cocktails. “It’s access to a fun, hip environment with delicious, chef-driven food at an affordable price point in a really casual setting,” Eskin said. “That’s few and far between out here. It’s either take-out or it’s white table cloth.” If the Rye Brook location takes off, Eskin aims to expand Dig Inn to other Westchester towns or villages. “If we’re successful here, then that’s really exciting, because that means that there’s a lot of places in America outside of urban environments that we think we can be successful,” he said.

WMC NURSES RATIFY CONTRACT NURSES AT WESTCHESTER MEDICAL CENTER have ratified a new contract after six years of negotiations. The nurses, who are represented by New York State Nurses Association, approved the new contract overwhelmingly, according to a joint announcement by the union and hospital, but the actual vote was not disclosed. The contract is retroactive to April 1, 2011, when the previous agreement ended, and runs through December 2021. It covers about 1,500 nurses and resolves salary and benefit issues. Details of the settlement were not disclosed. The union has staged rallies, bought billboard space near the hospital, submitted a “hands off our benefits” petition and organized a political action committee to put pressure on the hospital during negotiations. Under the previous contract, ending in March 2011, base pay ranged from $64,901 to $80,483, depending on the type of work. The base pay increased for every year of experience, and at 25 years the pay ranged from $110,307 to $125,889. Westchester Medical Center is an 895bed academic hospital in Valhalla and is the primary referral center for other hospitals in the Hudson Valley.

There could be nothing more resonant with our mission at Vassar College.” Bradley was elected unanimously by the college’s board of trustees on Jan. 10. She will succeed Catharine Hill, who stepped down in August 2016 after 10 years as president. Since that time, dean of the faculty Jonathan Chenette has served as interim president. Bradley’s term will begin July 1. “This is a critical time for leadership in liberal arts education, with many complex issues facing our campuses, our nation and our world,” Bradley said. “With its strong intellectual foundation and its legacy of making a difference through action, Vassar serves as a model of high-quality, accessible, and innovative higher education.” Prior to her work at Yale, Bradley was a hospital administrator at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University in 1984, earned a master’s in business administration from the University of Chicago in 1986 and a Ph.D. in health policy and health economics from Yale University in 1996. “Working with students here in the U.S. and globally, I have seen how access to higher education changes lives, and it makes me even more committed to making certain we maintain Vassar as a diverse and inclusive community,” Bradley said. The coeducational, independent liberal arts college was founded in 1861.

kind of like Obamacare. OK, you’ve been talking about this for years, you want to get rid of it... Now it’s your deal, what are you going to do with it? What’s going to replace it?” “We have some extraordinarily positive things happening in Westchester, the most optimism I’ve seen in several years,” Mooney added. “What kind of cold water is this going to pour on that?”
Under the terms of the deal, Entergy Corp. will shut down Indian Point’s Unit 2 reactor by April 2020 and the Unit 3 reactor by April 2021. The Unit 1 reactor at the plant was shut down in 1974. The agreement reached between the state and Entergy included input from Riverkeeper, an Ossining-based environmental group. Entergy, a New Orleans-based company with an office in White Plains, has been trying to renew the 20-year federal licenses
for its two active reactors since 2007, but has been challenged by state officials and environmental groups such as Riverkeeper throughout the process. While the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission has consistently found the plant safe to operate, there have been a number of highly publicized issues and incidents at the plant in recent years. In March 2016, Entergy disclosed that it would have to repair faulty baffle bolts in the liner of its Unit 2 reactor. A month before that, elevated levels of the radioactive material tritium were found in groundwater samples beneath the plant. Adding to that were multiple unplanned shutdowns of reactors that Cuomo often used as evidence of the danger of maintaining a nuclear plant less than 30 miles from New York City. Still Entergy officials stressed the plant’s strong safety record following the news of the future closing. The company pointed to $1.3 billion in investment for safety and reliability improvements in the past 15 years and 6,000 hours of inspections by the NRC last year.
The relicensing efforts were dealt a major blow in November, when New York’s highest court said the company was not exempt from a review by the New York Department of State’s coastal management program. Entergy had argued it wasn’t subject to the state’s coastal regulations, as the rules took effect after the reactors were already running. New York had refused to grant Indian Point a coastal consistency certification, which gives the plant authority to operate on the Hudson River. The deal reached on Jan. 9 settles all litigation between the state and Entergy, as well as with Riverkeeper. Entergy will end its quest for a 20-year federal license and instead apply to the NRC for a six-year license. At a State of the State address in New York City, Cuomo called Indian Point a “ticking time bomb.” “For 15 years, I have been deeply concerned by the continuing safety violations at Indian Point, especially given its location in the largest and most densely populated metropolitan region in the country,”
Indian Point’s history in brief Indian Point Unit 1 was brought online at its 250-acre site in Buchanan in 1972 by Consolidated Edison. Con Ed shut down that reactor in 1974, and Units 2 and 3 were brought on line in 1974 and 1976. To help Con Edison through the Middle East oil embargo crisis, the New York State Legislature gave approval to the New York Power Authority in 1974 to buy, finish and operate two power plants Con Edison had started building. One of those plants was Indian Point Unit 3, which the New York Power Authority then operated for close to 30 years. The arrangement required the Power Authority to sell most of the plants’ output to government agencies in New York City and Westchester County. In 2000, Power Authority trustees approved the sale of Unit 3 and James A. FitzPatrick nuclear plant in Oswego County to Entergy for $967 million, a record at the time for the U.S. nuclear industry. The next year, Entergy acquired Unit 2, and the defunct Unit 1, from Con Ed for $528 million.
In August, Entergy announced the sale of the 800 megawatt James A. FitzPatrick nuclear plant to Exelon Generation for $110 million. Entergy has also shut down or is in the process of closing nuclear plants in Vermont, Michigan and Massachusetts. The company said in a statement that it is exiting the merchant power business and focusing on its regulated utility operations, including its nuclear plants in the south.
Cuomo said. “I am proud to have secured this agreement with Entergy to responsibly close the facility 14 years ahead of schedule to protect the safety of all New Yorkers.” But Entergy said the decision to shut the plant was an economic one, separate from the pressures the company felt from state leadership. The company pointed to decreasing revenues from lower energy prices and increasing operating costs for nuclear plants hurting the entire nuclear power industry. “It made sense for us to try to negotiate this settlement consistent with our point of view that we were going to have to make a decision to shut down the plant anyway because of poor financial conditions,” said Bill Mohl, president of Entergy Wholesale Commodities at a press conference following the announcement. But Mohl acknowledged that the continued opposition to the plant’s relicensing, and the extended review period, drove up those costs and factored into the decision. Entergy has spent more than $200 million over 10 years on the review process, according to numbers provided by the company. If the state cannot find a replacement for Indian Point’s power by 2021, both the state and Entergy can agree to extend the plant’s operation in two-year increments until April 2024 for Unit 2 and April 2025 for Unit 3. Other terms of the deal include: • New York State will approve a coastal zone management act consistency certification and all other necessary water permits for Entergy. • Entergy will provide $15 million to “support environmental restoration and community benefit projects.” • New York state will have authority, along with the NRC, for various inspections at Indian Point through the duration of its operation. • Entergy’s previously agreed upon payments in lieu of taxes agreement with the town of Cortlandt, the county and » » IMPACT, page 26

checks. Or some licensed dealers at shows sell weapons to “straw buyers,” people who fill out the paperwork and submit to a criminal background checks but who are not the actual buyers. He said Astorino favors the Republican proposal to implement gun show procedures based on a model advocated by the
JANUARY 16, 2017
state attorney general. It requires show operators and vendors to track weapons, enforce criminal background checks and confine transactions to inside the building. The public hearing is scheduled for 7 p.m. Jan. 24, two days after the gun and knife show. The county has been working with the show operator, NorthEast Gun Shows of Mahopac Falls, for a year to find a suitable date. NorthEast, which also operates as Westchester Collectors, ran its first gun
show in 1984 at the Westchester County Center. Now it operates 22 shows a year, mostly in New England. Newman Chittenden, the CEO, said he knows of no gun violence linked to firearms sold at his shows in 32 years and there is no reliable evidence of problems linked to gun shows in general. He asked why there is such a negative attitude about gun shows. “There is only one answer. They are afraid of guns. They are afraid of gun own-
ers. It’s just fear and that’s no basis for making laws,” Chittenden said. He said he expects a “huge amount of people” to turn out for the show. “A gun show simply must not be held on government property, period,” U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey said at a news conference held earlier on the day of the vote. “I’m tired of saying our thoughts and prayers are with you,” to families touched by gun violence victims. “We have to take action now.”

As a business owner, you likely spend time promoting a sense of teamwork, collaboration, and unity among your employees. But are you doing the same within your family? Establishing a strong sense of team at home is crucial if you hope to pass on your business to future generations. The dilemma. Parents in high-net-worth families face the challenge of preparing the next generation to tackle wealth-related issues, while also worrying about entitlement and lack of motivation. They often spend a great deal of time preparing their money for their family, but rarely focus on preparing their family for the money. Many business owners who come to us have fallen into this trap. We see them devoting significant resources to off-site company retreats, where abilities and shared values are identified, and the company’s mission for the future is discussed at length. But when asked if they are doing the same with their families, there’s likely silence and a shrug. Interdependence is often overlooked. By the time you realize that your family is fragmenting into a group of independent, self-interested individuals, it can be very difficult to reverse the trend.
The answer. We have a five-step process that can help you build a strong family team, and it’s based on some of the same tools you’d use within your company. It involves education, communication, shared values, philanthropy, and governance. The tools and strategies employed at each stage can help families start encouraging the skills needed to make positive, intelligent decisions regarding family wealth long into the future.

THE ROBERTS REPORT
It’s time to re-engineer government regulation for growth
n November, Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner announced on Facebook that the town had just installed solar panels on the roof of town hall, eliciting dozens of “likes” and a presentation at the next board meeting. He joined nearly every other mayor and public official in New York state advertising their efforts to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. But while solar power undeniably serves a public good, its efficiency pales in comparison to a simpler but much bolder project that has languished in the regulatory process for nearly seven years. It’s called the Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE), a high-voltage direct current transmission system that would take 1,000 megawatts of clean, renewable hydropower from northern Quebec and bring it into the New York metropolitan area grid. The transmission line would stretch for 333 miles from Canada to a New York City substation in Astoria, Queens. It would transmit the hydropower via two buried copper cables, six inches in diameter, essentially an extremely long power cord no different

from the one used by your toaster. While it’s not sexy, it will bring an enormous quantity of non-polluting electricity to the city and surrounding counties, such as Westchester, Rockland and Long Island, and shave $500 million dollars a year off the cost of wholesale power to ratepayers, according to studies accepted by the Public Service Commission. The line will be buried for its full length underground and under the Hudson River in a trench no more than six feet wide and four feet deep in most places. You would think it should be relatively simple to examine the environmental impacts of essentially digging a hole, adding two cables and then covering it up, but it has been wending its way through the state and federal government’s byzantine approvals process since 2010.
CHAMPLAIN HUDSON POWER EXPRESS VS. SOLAR POWER
Let’s compare the value of CHPE to solar power in New York state. According to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, ratepayers have already shelled out $527
million to develop 51,000 residential and nonresidential solar power projects totaling 669 megawatts. The capital funding for these projects came from taxes labeled as charges on our electricity bills, primarily the system benefits charge. Privately funded, the $2.5- billion CHPE project will cost the ratepayers nothing to build. At 1,000 megawatts, its capacity is nearly 50 percent larger than all solar installations combined. But there’s an even bigger payoff in the number of kilowatt hours produced because while solar panels can generate electricity only during daylight hours when the sun shines—five hours per day in New York on average - the hydro turbines run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Thus, a megawatt of solar power produces about one-fifth (5/24) of the amount of electricity a megawatt of hydro generates. Just like solar, once the infrastructure is built, the “fuel”—water from Quebec’s La Romaine River—is freely available forever. The Public Service Commission and other experts conservatively estimate the savings in the wholesale price of electricity at over
$500 million dollars a year to New York City, Westchester and other metro area ratepayers. The environmental benefit includes the annual savings of over 2 million tons of carbon dioxide compared with fossil fuels. Expansion of solar power undoubtedly makes sense as a response to global warming and the state’s challenge to wean itself from fossil fuels. But we must also find the means to implement more cost-effective solutions, such as the CHPE, so they don’t face a regulatory gauntlet that discourages innovation.
THE BUREAUCRATIC NIGHTMARE OF PERMITTING
There are three major problems with approvals for development projects in New York state. First, agencies with jurisdiction rarely coordinate their reviews. Second, they do not recognize that time is money. And third, the court system is so congested that challenges take too long to adjudicate. All of this leads to uncertainty and failure for many worthwhile projects whose developers either don’t try or go bankrupt before they reach the finish line. Approvals delayed are approvals denied.
AGENCIES AND BOARDS SHOULD COORDINATE THEIR REVIEWS
It’s not that we don’t know how to move projects. Strong leaders have traditionally found ways to smash through the bureaucracy. Gov. Andrew Cuomo took a decade-old effort to replace the Tappan Zee Bridge, redesigned the permitting process to enable agencies to study it concurrently and rammed it through in record time. In Westchester County, using a generic environmental impact statement for the downtown, Mayor Noam Bramson streamlined the SEQRA (NYS Environmental Quality Review Act) process, enabling a $4-billion transformation of New Rochelle’s downtown. Yonkers Mayor Michael Spano launched what he calls a “concierge” permitting process for his downtown, in which all of the permitting boards coordinate with each other to insure concurrent rather than consecutive consideration, with one board’s approval sometimes contingent upon another’s. But these examples are exceptions, as most local communities use home rule to thwart any development proposals with which they disagree, using developers’ own money against them. Coordinated consideration of projects should be standard and not dependent on strong individual mayors or governors. Instead of collaboratively studying the CHPE, four different approving agencies, each with its own procedures, looked at essentially the same issues. Ironically, the first of those agencies, the New York Public Service Commission (PSC), did a fine job with the first major approval. After the CHPE developer spent millions of dollars and two years of studies to design the project and consider its impact, staff of the PSC helped hammer out a joint agreement with 21 interested parties. While it took two years and 50 settlement conferences to satisfy disparate interests, such as the state Department of Environmental Conservation, the city of New York, Riverkeeper, the Adirondack Park Agency and even the New York State Council of Trout Unlimited, any one of them could have sued and tied up the project for years. After public hearings, the PSC issued its certification one year later in April 2013. In a preface to the 621-page approval decision, the PSC wrote: “The fact that so many parties, representing myriad interests and advocating a broad spectrum of concerns, could reach agreement on so many detailed, technical and policy-based issues is a remarkable achievement and is consistent with our settlement rules.” The PSC’s coordinated review should have ended with a shovel in the ground in April 2013. But because of authorizations required from the U.S. Department of Energy, Army Corps of Engineers, and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, nearly four years have gone by, costing rate-
payers about $2 billion in lost savings.
accountability for time delays by government bureaucrats.
Of course, the regulatory process should allow everyone to be heard. But since the permitting bureaucracy faces no legal time constraints and guidelines are regularly broken, no one is held accountable for delays. Business uses critical-path analysis and Gantt charts in project management and so should government. All tasks to accomplish a project are placed on a timeline and organized based on which are dependent and which are independent. For example, studying the environmental impact of a project is dependent on first designing it. TWB Now Open in Mamaroneck All of the tasks required for approval WCBJ from all agencies should be placed on a 7.375” w x 7.125” h master task list and then organized on a 11-21-16 timeline to determine task order for maximum efficiency. Once the timeline is developed, the bureaucracy should commit to estimated dates, which may be adjusted as the project moves through the process. This will have the added benefit of introducing
The court system is so clogged with frivolous litigation that opponents know they can delay a project for virtually any reason for little money. Delays could be reduced with an investment of resources into the courts so that lawsuits are considered in a timely fashion. Judges who sit on decisions should be held accountable and would if they were monitored. The developers of the Champlain Hudson Power Express are not complaining about the time it has taken for their $2.5 billion project. After seven years, they have completed all but one major hurdle, with construction projected for the middle of 2017. But we can do better.
INTRODUCE THE CONCEPT THAT “TIME IS MONEY”
LIMIT THE LAWSUIT LOTTERY
LEGISLATION IS NEEDED
The New York State Legislature should draft a Concurrent Review and Approvals Act that would mandate that all permitting agencies and boards meet jointly at a scoping session at the inception of a qualified
project, determine the most efficient way to consider it using critical path analysis and a Gantt chart, and commit to estimated timeframes to insure transparency and accountability. Until such an act is passed, jurisdictions could voluntarily adopt these approval practices — collaborative scoping, timeline with Gantt chart and concurrent review - and developers could ask for them as a condition of their investment. In sum, we can continue playing small ball, spending a trillion dollars to fix potholes, or re-engineer our regulatory process to encourage bold private initiatives that can lead to a more prosperous and sustainable society. We can no longer afford to ask the agents of growth to risk millions of dollars in an uncertain and highly litigious regulatory environment, or go somewhere else. It’s time now to re-engineer the regulatory process for growth. Alexander Roberts is executive director of the fair housing group Community Housing Innovations Inc., headquartered in White Plains.

BY ANDI GRAY
Transferring ownership across generations We’re a two-generation company, and I find that ownership is very confusing. It feels like as long as the seniors are alive, we in the next generation will never own the company, even though we’re now doing the majority of the heavy lifting. On top of that, the seniors represent a huge financial drain on the company. Given what they’re taking out of the business, why would they give up control? THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Think about what control you want and what leverage you have to get it. Figure out how to make the senior generation whole. Make sure the next generation is ready to run the business. It’s best when a new generation enters the business to agree beforehand, in writ-
ing, as to how shares will transfer. If that ship has already sailed, then work on how to transfer shares, for what compensation and over what period of time before you go much further. Know that until you hold 51 percent of shares, you are subordinate to whomever does. Make sure you can live with that. Recognize that if the company does not make a profit, the difference between owing 10 percent of shares and 49 percent of shares is more about managing the business than it is about benefitting from profit distributions. Anyone in the company can make decisions, until their boss overrules them. Think about senior generation interactions. Do they overrule, or do they simply ask questions to learn how and why decisions are made? Do you and they openly disagree about the business’ future or just the tactics of how to get from here to there? You may have more control than you think. While you may feel second-guessed, keep in mind that the one thing the senior generation probably doesn’t want to do is come back to work full time. If the seniors’
compensation is jeopardizing the future of the business, show them in black and white what’s going on. Ask for their help in reining in spending. Find out what the company is worth. There are several valuation calculations that you’ll want to look at, including asset sale, equity sale and enterprise value, comparing market approach, income approach and rules of thumb. If you’re not sure what these terms mean, get someone who is familiar with valuing companies to explain. Hopefully the senior generation did a good job of saving for retirement. If the company had ups and downs along the way, the seniors may have put money back into the business to keep it going. That may have eaten into their retirement funds, which is and isn’t your problem. If you’re concerned that there won’t be enough money to go around, stretch out payments. Get funding from the bank. Self-fund with shares in escrow. Implement a consulting contract. Often deal breakers are items such as health insurance, cell phones, retirement funding and car payments. Spend time figur-
ing out what’s important to the senior generation. Check with your accounting and legal advisors to be sure the final deal is appropriate and legal. Begin working on the generational transition long before it’s time to act. Divide responsibility as the company grows. Use training and regular performance reviews to help people grow. Demonstrate that next-generation managers are succeeding through checklists, goals and tracking reports. Prioritize growth, profitability and reserve funds. LOOKING FOR A GOOD BOOK?

Cuomo proposes projects in Purchase speech BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH firstname.lastname@example.org
ov. Andrew M. Cuomo took his roving State of the State address to SUNY Purchase College on Jan. 10, where he promised an agenda that would help the middle class, a transit investment in Orange County and the construction of a 750-mile statewide recreation trail. Cuomo was traveling throughout the state to give his yearly State of the State speech, eschewing the traditional address to the Legislature in Albany. Cuomo scheduled speeches in Manhattan, Buffalo, Westchester and Long Island on Jan. 9 and 10 as part of the tour. To a crowd including Purchase students and local elected officials that filled the 550-seat recital hall at the college’s Performing Arts Center, Cuomo laid out his vision for the state in 2017. That includes increased investment in infrastructure and tax relief, part of what he referred to as the “middle-class recovery act.” The secondterm Democrat governor also reiterated his pledge to push the Legislature to approve free tuition at all SUNY and CUNY schools for families meeting financial criteria. Cuomo also said the state was at its strongest in decades, with “remarkable economic and social progress.” Notably absent from Cuomo’s speech was anything about Indian Point Energy Center. Cuomo announced a deal on Jan. 9 to close the decades-old nuclear plant by 2021. But he did not mention anything about the plant’s scheduled closing to the audience in Westchester. Several local leaders have sounded the alarm on the economic damage the plant will leave in its wake. When making the Indian Point announcement in New York City, Cuomo said the plant was a “ticking time bomb” less than 30 miles from Manhattan. The governor instead highlighted what he said were accomplishments of the past year, including an increased minimum wage, paid family leave and 7.9 million private-sector jobs, which Cuomo said marks a record for the state. He also gave a shout-out to the “phenomenal success” of Tarrytownbased Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. Cuomo used the majority of his 45-minute speech to highlight 2017 initiatives with ties to Westchester and the lower Hudson Valley, including:
EMPIRE STATE TRAIL
Cuomo proposed a $200 million project that would create a 750-mile Empire State Trail. The trail, he said, could provide recreational pathways from New York City to the Canadian border in the North Country and
from Albany to Buffalo. “We want to do something that I believe will be a legacy project that our children and our children’s children will enjoy,” Cuomo said in introducing the project. “We want to build the largest state multiuse trail in the nation.” The trailway would complete and connect the existing Hudson River Valley Greenway trail and the Erie Canal Greenway trail. “You could run, you could bike, you could walk,” Cuomo said. “You could make it an entire vacation and you would see some of the most beautiful parts of the state.” The Hudson River Valley Greenway, a state project, is about 50 percent complete and spans more than 260 miles between Manhattan’s Battery Park and Lake George. The state would have to build about 350 miles of trails, including 50 bridges, Cuomo said. Phase one of the project’s proposed three phases would spend $53 million to pave 72 miles. Phases two and three would pave the additional 82 and 196 miles, respectively, according to numbers presented by Cuomo. The state already owns the “vast majority” of the needed land, he said. The project could create 9.6 jobs for every million dollars invested, Cuomo said. “I believe this could change the economy for the Hudson Valley and through the Erie Canal corridor, which are two areas that desperately need more economic activity,” Cuomo said.

WOODBURY TRANSIT AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT HUB
Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, a Simon Property Group Mall, is an outlet shopping center with international appeal. But getting there off Route 17 can be “one of the more infuriating experiences in life,” Cuomo said. That was the introduction to his proposal to “accelerate” a $150 million transit and economic development hub in Woodbury. ‘We’ve been talking about fixing it for a long, long time,” Cuomo said. “Everybody’s had a plan, no one has done anything. This year we will do it.” Cuomo’s proposal would replace the Route 32 bridge over Route 17 in Woodbury; expand park and ride facilities, including a bus stop and solar-powered bus station; reconfigure the Route 17, Exit 131 eastbound ramp leading to the New York State Thruway; upgrade the traffic signal system along Route 32 and add Intelligent Transportation Systems features which help manage traffic. Cuomo said an RFP for the project would be out by next month from the state Department of Transportation and they’ll have “shovels in the ground” by November.

Vodka-maker Roust’s bankruptcy approved BY BILL HELTZEL firstname.lastname@example.org
.S. Bankruptcy Court in White Plains confirmed a $1.1 billion reorganization plan by Roust Corp., a European vodka producer with executive offices in White Plains, on Jan. 6, one week after the case was filed. U.S. Trustee William Harrington had objected to an expedited approval process and described the plan as an attempt to avoid scrutiny and procedural protections. “The debtors, in unprecedented fashion, request that this court, in essence, rubber stamp what can more properly be characterized as a pre-petition bankruptcy case,” he said in a pleading. But Judge Robert Drain noted that Roust had notified creditors of its reorganization plan a month before the case was filed, and they are sophisticated enough to know what to do. The vodka producer filed the pre-packaged bankruptcy on Dec. 30. Roust asked Drain to expedite the proceedings so that the reorganization could conclude this month. Bankruptcy is an alien concept in Europe, the company’s primary market, CEO Grant Winterton explained in a declaration to the court, and a lengthy case would impair its viability. “It is important that Roust exit Chapter 11 as quickly as possible,” he said, so that employees, vendors and credit support providers “remain willing to do business with the company.” Roust is one of the world’s largest vodka producers, with 3,500 employees working mostly in Poland and Russia. Among its vodka brands are Absolwent, Żubrówka, Soplica and Green Mark. The U.S. connections are a small office at 777 Westchester Ave., White Plains, where Winterton is based, and two Delaware subsidiaries, CEDC Finance Corporation LLC and CEDC Finance Corporation International, that also are part of the bankruptcy case. Roust is controlled by Russian oligarch Roustam Tariko. He owns Russian Standard Group, a private company that owns other alcohol enterprises, a bank and an insurance business. Tariko “was responsible for saving Roust,” according to Winterton’s declaration. The company was in severe financial distress in 2013, when it was known as Central European Distribution Corp. Two executives were replaced for accounting discrepancies. Tariko lost $100 million. But he ended
up owning all of the company when it restructured three years ago in bankruptcy court in Delaware. Most of Roust’s revenues are made in Poland and Russia, and it has been successful in Hungary, France, Germany, the U.K., and Israel. It recorded $445.8 million in net sales, for the nine months ending in September, for a 15 percent increase from the year before. But strong performance has been offset by “macroeconomic conditions,” Winterton told the court. It is over-leveraged with debt and has high borrowing costs. Currency depreciations in Russia, Poland, Kazakhstan and Ukraine have hurt cash flow in U.S. dollars and made debt repayment burdensome. Illegal alcohol sales and competitors with lower excise taxes have eroded Roust’s
share of the vodka market. A ban on Russian products in Ukraine has resulted in a 90 percent decline in business there. And large Russian tax payments are due this month. The company began negotiating months ago with the debt holders. The reorganization lets bond holders swap debt for equity. Holders of $497 million in senior secured notes will recover an estimated 100 percent of their claims, according to the plan, and holders of $284 million in convertible notes will recover about 27 percent of the face value of their claims. Creditors holding another $376 million in bank loans and other debt are expected to get back all they are owed. Tariko sweetened the deal by contributing assets and intellectual property from
his Russian Standard vodka brands. He will retain majority interest in the reorganized company. The company is expected to emerge with its capitalization strengthened by more than $500 million, its balance sheet deleveraged by at least $462 million and its equity enhanced by $55 million. The reorganization, Winterton said, would position Roust for “accelerated revenue and profit growth” in the global alcohol market, take advantage of growth opportunities and position it for an initial public offering in two to three years. The court approval enables Roust to complete the reorganization by the end of January. Now, “it’s essentially paperwork,” said Roust attorney Jay Goffman of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.

Westmoreland Lofts slated for changing White Plains industrial corridor BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH email@example.com
58,000-square-foot mixed-use development will bring a microbrewery, green grocer and loft apartments to a White Plains industrial corridor near the downtown Metro-North Railroad station. The city’s Common Council approved the project Jan. 3, praising it as the latest positive step for an area the city rezoned

last year for new development. The project is proposed by Westmoreland Lofts LLC., a joint venture of HayMax Capital and Red Starr Investments LLC. The development will add a new 5-story structure to vacant land at 136-158 Westmoreland Ave. The site has been used as a parking lot for construction equipment and vehicles. “It’s an emerging neighborhood,” Philip A. Fruchter said of the Westmoreland Avenue corridor. Fruchter is principal of White Plains-based Papp Architects P.C., which designed the project. “It’s an industrial use being converted to mixed-use to per-
mit multifamily residential, so it’s going to have an appeal, probably, to younger renters looking for more of a New York City vibe in an emerging neighborhood,” he said. Developers will construct a total of 62 loft-style rental apartments, including 33 studio, 20 one-bedroom and nine twobedroom units. At street level, there will be a 2,700-squarefoot light-manufacturing space, planned as a microbrewery, and a 1,600-square-foot retail space slated for a green grocer. The development will add 97 parking spaces. While renderings for the proj-
ect show the streetfront name “Bronx River Brewery,” Fruchter said the development team has not yet contracted an operator for the microbrewery or green grocer. The microbrewery would include a tasting room but not food service, the architect said. The brewery would be the first within the city of White Plains. The lofts will be built in a corridor that the White Plains Common Council rezoned in 2015 to try to attract a wider range of uses. The one-way Westmoreland Avenue now is home to a Westy Self Storage building and several active light-industrial tenants, including an auto repair shop and a meat wholesaler. The zoning change allows for mixed-use buildings, making the corridor a promising location for residential developers. The street connects to the city’s Fisher Hill neighborhood and is less than a mile from the city’s Metro-North station. It’s also within walking distance of the city’s recently upgrad-
ed Kittrell Park. “I always felt that neighborhood and that street had potential and bones to be something special,” said White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach at this month’s Common Council meeting. “And that we could keep the light industrial uses but mix in some other uses and add an element of walkability to Fisher Hill that would enhance the value of living there.” Before the project was unanimously approved by the Common Council, Roach emphasized the importance of the area to his vision for the city. While interviewing candidates for the city planner position, Roach said, he’d end each interview by driving down to Westmoreland, where he’d ask each candidate if he or she saw the same potential he did. Since the zoning change, several developers appear taken with the potential as well. Next door to where the Westmoreland Lofts will be built, at 121 Westmoreland Ave., is the
110-year-old Swackhamer building. The red-brick, gambrel-roof building was vacated in 2011 by the CG Swackhamer Inc. building supply and lumberyard business. Cum Laude Group Inc., a builder of luxury homes, purchased and renovated the building and leased its upper floor as a working artist’s studio. Across the street, construction has started on the redevelopment of a 48,000-square-foot industrial building at 122 Westmoreland Ave. Developer Norden Lofts LLC will convert the building to 65 loft-style apartments with 42 studio, 18 one-bedroom and five twobedroom units. To keep with the street’s industrial history, the new Westmoreland Loft building will be designed to look the part of a converted former industrial building. The design calls for a masonry building with large steel casement windows to capture the look, Fruchter said. Red Starr Investments, which has an office in Harrison, is a real estate investment and development firm founded in 2011. The firm’s investments include residential and commercial projects in New Jersey, Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Alabama, according to a list of recent transactions on its website. HayMax Capital has an office in Aspen, Colorado, and shares the Harrison office with Red Starr Investments. The firm develops mixed-use residential and commercial properties and operates a number of hotels, including Hotel Aspen and the Molly Gibson Lodge in Aspen and the Tamarack Lodge in Idaho’s Sun Valley region. This is the first project in Westchester for both companies. Fruchter said no timetable has been set on construction for the Westmoreland Lofts.

Build sidewalks with biotech project BY PAUL FEINER
estchester County and Mount Pleasant officials should require the developers of the $1.2 billion biotechnology research center that is under review — the 60 North project — to build sidewalks on Knollwood Road and Grasslands Road — two roads that are used by students at Westchester
Community College. The college is located on roads that will be used by many of the employees who will work at the new biotechnology research center when it is built. This project, when completed, will be enormous and will generate significant traffic: medical offices, research, retail, restaurants, a hotel and a children’s museum. The first phase would include about 500,000 square feet of development. The developer has estimated that the
project will create 4,000 construction jobs and 8,000 permanent jobs, pay $7 million in annual rents to the county and generate $9 million a year in local real estate taxes. Many of the students who attend Westchester Community College don't have cars. It's already dangerous to walk on Knollwood or Grasslands Road. Students have been asking for sidewalks for years. This new development is a great opportu-
nity to make both streets safer for pedestrians and for students at the college and to make our area the biotech capitol of New York state. I have no objection to developers making money from this deal. And think it's great that the county will generate muchneeded revenue. But don't want pedestrians or students to be less safe when walking to school. Paul Feiner is Greenburgh Town Supervisor
Indian Point’s premature closing will hamper regional economy BY JENNIFER MAHER
he announcement by Gov. Cuomo of the planned closure of the Indian Point nuclear power plants is a severe blow to the economic future of the Hudson Valley and indeed the state, say many business experts including Business Council of Westchester President and CEO Marsha Gordon. In a letter to her members, she notes that "the power generated at Indian Point has played a direct role in stabilizing electricity costs in Westchester and
the state of New York. We have repeatedly called for the plants to be relicensed, a process that has been unnecessarily dragged out for 15 years and counting." She also drew attention to the uncertainty surrounding the closure, something that is never a good thing for business. Ms. Gordon stated, "We wait to learn how (Cuomo) intends to deal with the prospect of increased electric rates, the reliability of electric supply for Westchester, the Hudson Valley region and New York City and the myriad of envi-
ronmental and other issues the shutdown inevitably will bring." Entergy has been a good community citizen and an active participant in bolstering the economy of the lower Hudson Valley. There is also the issue of what happens to the 1,000 jobs at the plant and the loss of tax revenue both to the surrounding community and the school district. This is going to create quite a mess, and the question to be asked is, "Why?" As Ms. Gordon puts it, "We recognize that for some members of the commu-

nity and a number of elected officials, the announcement is good news. Unfortunately, the shutdown poses an entirely new set of questions with no certain answers." That assessment, sadly, is something every resident of the Hudson Valley and beyond should be concerned about. Energy availability and reliability is a vital part of any future economic growth for our state.

BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF MOUNT VERNON
Boys & Girls Club of Mount Vernon has been serving youth for 105 years. In its long and distinguished history the club has helped produce leaders in business, sports and entertainment. The club is committed to continuing its tradition of “GREAT FUTURES START HERE.” The mission of Boys & Girls Club of Mount Vernon is to enable all young people especially, those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive caring, responsible citizens. The club was originally a recreational outlet for boys, but as the needs of our community increased the club began to serve girls. In 1991, the Boys Club officially became the Boys & Girls Club. TODAY THE CLUB FOCUSES ON THREE AREAS FOR ALL ITS MEMBERS. 1. Academic Success: We want all our members to be on track to graduate from high school with a plan for their future. Over the past three years 100 percent of club high school seniors who attended more than 52 times during the year graduated from high school. 2. Community Service: We believe that if you engage young people in community service at a young age they will become lifelong service providers. They will become part of the solution as opposed to contributing to the problems. Over the past three years club members have logged more than 5,000 hours of community service. 3. Healthy Lifestyles: The club promotes healthy lifestyles through a variety of programs. Healthy cooking demonstrations, a healthy snack program that provides a daily piece of fruit. The club has also installed healthy vending machines. The healthy lifestyle initiative aims to reduce disease and unhealthy behaviors. The club has a budget of $800,000 and depends on three major fundraisers to provide the funding necessary to continue to offer life-altering programs. The club serves more than 1,400 youth annually and averages 110 youth daily. Our annual GALA, our largest fundraiser, will be held on Wednesday March 29th at the beautiful Surf Club in New Rochelle. This year’s honorees include: Westchester District Attorney Tony Scarpino, MacQuesten Development Managing Director Joe Apicella, Montefiore Medical Center President and CEO Steven M.

NONPROFIT WESTCHESTER: OVERHEAD ISN’T A FOUR-LETTER WORD
WHY GIVE? “I serve on the board of the Boys & Girls Club because I am passionate about the mission of the club which is to help enable young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. We have a positive impact on so many children in the Mount Vernon community every single day.”
Fred Schwam Vice President of Boys & Girls Club Board of Directors
Joanna Straub Executive Director, Nonprofit Westchester
As the year drew to a close, many people generously contributed to causes that were important to them. Actually, let me correct that: People SAID they donated to a cause, but really they donated to a nonprofit. Nonprofit organizations work to cure disease, provide quality childcare, maintain green spaces, share vibrant cultural experiences and ensure that people have a decent place to call home. Every single resident of our county benefits from the network of services provided by nonprofits. These programs and services are carefully crafted and implemented by skilled professionals and they cost money to run. Offices must be rented, equipment purchased and technology upgraded for efficiency. These are all things everyone agrees that a business needs to operate. But all too often, nonprofits are held to a different standard. The problem is donors want to see their money go directly to help people and not to overhead. Even nonprofits are guilty of falling into this trap. I cringed when I recently
heard a radio ad campaign touting an organization’s low overhead rate. But it isn’t about overhead. In many cases, nonprofits are running a very important race with one hand tied behind their back. If donors demand low overhead, they skimp on important investments and capacity-building efforts such as training, planning, evaluation and internal systems. These are the things that help nonprofits do their best work. So next time you consider making a donation, look for results instead of the overhead rate. Ask these questions: Are they setting and achieving important goals? Are they making progress? Just as is the case with for-profit organizations, it might take years of development before they succeed. So instead of worrying about overhead, invest in organizations because they get results – something they can’t do it if they don’t invest in organization building.

Tarrytown considers waterfront development ideas BY ALEESIA FORNI firstname.lastname@example.org
fter years of studies, planning and gathering feedback, village officials unveiled an array of possible development scenarios for the area surrounding the Metro-North train station and village hall in Tarrytown. “Because it’s our village, it’s up to us to decide what changes we want and how we want it to serve us in the future, what we want it to be,” said David Aukland, a member of the planning board. “That’s precisely

what’s been happening down at the station area. We are taking a collective look.” The development ideas are part of “Tarrytown, Connected,” a report that outlines a framework for the redevelopment of the waterfront area that runs from the Department of Public Works at 4 Division St. to the American Independent Paper Co. site at 15 Depot Plaza. Officials presented the report during an informational meeting on Jan. 5. “It’s a very exciting project and a re-look at the waterfront and this area around the village hall,” Mayor Drew Fixell said. “It has a lot of potential, and it’s very busy now, and it’s going to take a real hard look to figure out what we ought to do with it.” Following the success of Hudson Harbor, a waterfront residential and commercial development at 11 River St. near the Tarrytown train station, village officials said that area has seen increased interest from developers. “The point of (Tarrytown, Connected) is to really put the village in the driver’s seat,” said Melissa Kaplan-Macey, principal of Collaborative Planning Studio, a Larchmont-based urban planning consulting firm hired by the village. “We really want to be in a position where the village isn’t just reacting to something and making a decision based on (a developer) coming to the village, but really understands what we’d like to see happen.” The concepts detailed in the report were designed to help illustrate the various impacts associated with a number of land uses for the waterfront and station areas, Kaplan-Macey said. In a “park concept”, the waterfront area includes expanded parkland surrounding the Tarrytown Boat Club at 236 Green St. A “destination concept” includes a boutique hotel and a waterfront mixed-use area, with ground-floor retail and restaurants below residential units. A third concept transforms the waterfront into a residential neighborhood with public open space. The report also outlined residential and commercial development ideas for the site surrounding village hall along Depot Plaza. Kaplan-Macey said that the concepts included in the report are not development proposals. Instead, they were designed to “provide a point of reference for what different scenarios could look like with some costs and benefits.” The report is the result of a two-year study headed by a steering committee composed of members from Tarrytown’s board of trustees and planning board, a representative from the Westchester County Planning Department, village residents and business owners.
Aukland, who is co-chair of the steering committee, said the study was an effort “to try and get ahead” of any development proposals. “As all of this change is coming along, the board has wanted to be sure that whatever is coming next really is right for the village, right for all of us, not just for a developer here or some industrial owner there,” he said. Prior to publishing the report, the steering committee took in public comment from its website and hosted open houses and public meetings. “Not everybody agreed, but we felt like there was a clear consensus around these conversations about a vision,” KaplanMacey said. That vision includes making the area more walkable and pedestrian-friendly. The report also identified a number of capital improvements the village could undertake, including the reopening of a pedestrian tunnel that connects the Metro-North station to the waterfront. “That’s a big piece of the connectivity,” Kaplan-Macey said. The study also explored the idea of relocating village-owned parking lots that sit on “very critical” property on both sides of the Metro-North station. “I think most people – possibly not everybody – would agree that cars sunbathing all day is perhaps not the highest and best use,” she said. Kaplan-Macey stressed that various developments happening around Tarrytown should “not be a bunch of piece parts, but really, a whole.” “We’re framing this as part of an economic development strategy for the village, so that what happens here isn’t happening in isolation,” she said. “It’s important that this is well connected to the fabric of the village in many ways.” The station area is zoned for a mix of residential, commercial and industrial uses, but officials said that in order to realize the village’s vision for the area, rezoning may be necessary. Additionally, the village plans to make amendments to its comprehensive plan to reflect its vision for future development. Joan Raiselis, a planning board member and co-chair of the steering committee, said those revisions could take about two years. “There has been a lot of interest by developers already in this area and we’re sort of putting them off a little bit, because we want to make sure this framework is concrete enough that we can hand it to them and say, ‘Try to work within this framework,’” she said. “After that, it’s sort of anybody’s bet.”

Proactive planning the key to successful renovations
ost successful renovations are the result of smart planning. A proactive planning approach can help sidestep headaches that might otherwise plague a remodeling or expansion project. Clarifying some questions up front helps solidify specific project goals. • What factors are driving the renovation? They can include upgrading systems, installing new technology, upgrading finishes, new tenants, changes in space
function and a desire to enhance aesthetic appeal. What issues will affect the schedule? Will work take place while the building is occupied or will it involve phased moves? What’s the budget? Does it include all available funds? Has room been left for contingencies? What outside entities such as regulatory agencies will the renovation team deal with? What are the quality expectations for

various aspects of the project? Can the budget realistically support these expectations?
A crucial element for a renovation process is having the best project team for the job. The first step is to find the right architectural and interior design team. It’s important to do research by soliciting proposals and conducting interviews to narrow the list. Another important step is hiring a reputable general contractor. Many project teams don’t bring a general contractor or construction manager into the process until after construction documents are completed. But the contractor’s role should begin at the concept stage, continue at least halfway through design development and pick up again when the job is bid. Involving the general contractor early can enhance communications, ensure harmonious relationships and maximize costefficiency. Drawing from extensive field experience, contractors can give valuable input on the project’s preliminary budget. They also can attest to the constructability of early design concepts and perform valuable engineering before a design is finalized or construction begins. Look for firms that are experienced in the type of renovation work the project will entail. Ask for specifics on budgets, schedules and change orders on the contractors’ past renovation projects. Be sure to obtain references from past clients and check them carefully. A critical member of the project team is the facility executive or representative for the project owner. Facility executives should establish a single point of contact with a project team member who consistently attends job meetings. At job meetings and on the construction site, the facility executive makes important decisions, helps resolve unanswered questions and holds team members accountable for their respective responsibilities.

JANUARY 16, 2017
To eliminate problems, the project team should conduct research on the building in which renovations will take place. This will require some added spending but is far less expensive compared with the cost of dealing with problems later. Site homework can be budgeted into the project. A helpful step is to thoroughly evaluate existing conditions, including the age and operating condition of all mechanical and electrical systems, condition of the building and its ability to support any renovations, quality of existing utilities, accuracy of past site evaluations and any historic elements. Without a preliminary site evaluation,
unforeseen conditions uncovered during construction — the presence of asbestos, lead or toxic mold — can bring the renovation to a halt and lead to costly redesign. Also, involve the local building inspector early in the process. Request that all zoning, fire, seismic and Americans with Disabilities Act requirements be inspected thoroughly so that the building meets current codes. By addressing code issues from the beginning, the inspector essentially can become an advocate who helps implement the project. If a regulatory entity such as a historic review committee or an environmental agency is overseeing the project in some capacity, it should be involved early on as well. The goal is to form a cohesive, team-oriented relationship before construction begins.
A frequent misconception is that renovation work should be quicker than new construction. The key to an effective project schedule is to keep it realistic, developed after careful evaluation of all issues such as weather and potential tenant disruption that drive the project’s timing. Start with the date that the renovated space must be ready and work backward. Be sure to allocate sufficient time for each phase, including pre-design services, design and construction. The design review process, time to order materials, and the contracting relationship also need to be calculated into the final schedule. The goal of the project schedule is to keep the renovation flowing smoothly without sacrificing quality of construction work or going over budget. Delays resulting from unforeseen existing conditions have the largest impact on the budget. All subsequent project issues should be addressed and resolved as they arise so obstacles that could compromise the schedule are dealt with immediately.
Even the most carefully planned project can hit surprises. To handle unforeseen setbacks, have a contingency budget of about 15 percent above the budget so that unexpected costs can be handled within budget parameters. Taking a proactive approach when planning a renovation helps minimize problems during the construction process. It requires up-front consideration and legwork, but proactive planning improves the likelihood of a high-quality, cost-efficient project of which both the project team and owner can be proud.

New Rochelle seeks proposals for fire station parcel BY BILL HELTZEL firstname.lastname@example.org
ew Rochelle Fire Department Station 1, as its name implies, is located centrally in the downtown, which is both an advantage and a disadvantage. The advantage is that firefighters can respond quickly and efficiently to emergencies. But the station takes up nearly threefourths of an acre of land in a part of town the city is promoting as a desirable residential alternative to New York City. From a developer’s point of view, a two-story, 50-year-old fire station is a waste of valuable real estate. Now New Rochelle officials are looking for a way to put the site to better use. It has issued a request for proposals for a 28-story mixed-use building on the cityowned parcel. This is the tricky part. The station at 45 Harrison St. must be demolished. But whoever wins development rights must retain and improve the firefighting services, either on site or elsewhere. At no time can the fire service be interrupted. The city will give preference to proposals that provide for a new fire station that includes about 40,000 square feet of indoor space and 20,000 square feet outdoors for training and parking. Developers who want to relocate the fire station must find a place nearby, between North Avenue, Stephenson Boulevard, Main Street and Interstate 95. Proposals that do not include a new fire station must demonstrate the benefits of the city relocating the station and must be worth at least $6.7 million, the appraised value of the Harrison Street property. The fire station occupies 30,492 square feet on a parcel near Huguenot and Main streets and I-95. It was built in 1966 and includes a five-bay garage, kitchen, sleeping area, maintenance facility, administrative offices, emergency medical services offices and classrooms.

facilities, Social Security Administration offices, a Radisson Hotel, Trump Plaza condominiums and the New Rochelle Transportation Center. Developers have the option of taking over Cedar Street, next to the site, adding about 36,000 square feet, for a total of 66,000 square feet. The parcels are zoned for 24 stories, but developers can get approval for another four floors by providing benefits to the community, such as public space or paying into a community benefits fund. Residential projects must allocate 10 percent of the space for affordable housing or pay into an affordable housing fund. The winning proposal may include any combination of mixed uses that align with the city’s master plan, developed in 2015 by
RDRXR, a joint venture of RXR Realty and Renaissance Downtowns. New Rochelle hopes to attract $4 billion in investment downtown by transforming 279 acres around the transportation center. The city is positioning itself as an ideal place for millennials, empty nesters, artists and entrepreneurs to live and work, just a half hour away from Grand Central Terminal on the Metro-North New Haven line. The idea is to create more than 12 million square feet of new space for retail, restaurants, offices, 6,300 residents and 1,200 hotel rooms. The city has paved the way for quick development. It has rezoned the project area to accommodate higher-density development and a variety of uses. It has
finished the costly, time-consuming State Environmental Quality Review Act evaluation for the entire area. It has fast-tracked the development approval process. Several developments, ranging from six stories to 28 and encompassing 1,000 residential units, are already underway. City officials will host a tour of the fire station site on Jan. 25. Proposals must be submitted by March 10. An evaluation committee will rank proposals: financial aspect, 30 percent; solution to the fire station, 30 percent; financial capacity, 20 percent; design concept, 10 percent; and completion schedule, 10 percent. Depending on the quality of the proposals, a winner could be chosen in a day, Development Commissioner Luiz Aragon said, or in a couple of months.

RITZ-CARLTON CONDO SALES: $33M IN 2016 THE RESIDENCES AT THE RITZ-CARLTON, Westchester, the high-rise condominium complex in downtown White Plains, posted record sales totaling more than $33 million in 2016, according to a spokesman for the development. Twenty-two residences in the 42-story Tower II were sold last year at an average price per square foot of $705. Nine were penthouse residences with a median sale price of $2.23 million. Sixteen of the total 333 residences in the two-tower complex on Renaissance Square remain available, according to the spokesman. “To describe 2016 as a very good year would be an understatement,” said Nancy Kennedy, a Houlihan Lawrence broker managing sales for the condominium tower. “Our sales activity has been brisk all year long and we expect it to continue into 2017. The high-end real estate market in Westchester is strong and buyers are responding to the unique luxury lifestyle
that we are offering.” “We are seeing quite a few buyers from Scarsdale as well as White Plains, Armonk and Mamaroneck,” Kennedy said in a news release. “These buyers like the fact that they can stay connected to their previous neighborhood while enjoying the many benefits of a Ritz lifestyle in the heart of downtown White Plains.” “We have gotten several buyers from Manhattan who prefer to have views of the city rather than be in the city,” she said. Residences in Tower II, where units are still available, range from 1,489 to 5,400 square feet and are priced from $960,000 to $4.5 million.
WARBY PARKER OPENS SLOATSBURG EYEWEAR FACTORY
WARBY PARKER, THE EYEWEAR RETAILER and manufacturer, officially opened its 34,000-square-foot optical lab in Sloatsburg on Jan. 11. It’s the first such facility the Manhattan-based company has fully owned. The Rockland County factory, equipped
for assembling glasses and finishing prescription lenses, will create up to 128 jobs over the next five years in exchange for the company’s receipt of $1.32 million in state tax credits through the state’s Excelsior Jobs Program. The company last summer said it would open the factory with about 15 employees. Warby Parker officials said the company will retain more than 250 jobs at its New York City headquarters and an additional 150 jobs at its five retail locations in the city. “Opening our first optical lab represents a significant milestone for both our customers and our team,” David Gilboa, Warby Parker co-founder and co-CEO, said in a press release. “Warby Parker has always operated as a sustainable, vertically integrated business. This is the next step in taking more control over our supply chain and will enable us to serve our customers in a faster, more personalized way.” Warby Parker sells designer prescription eyewear and sunglasses online and in nearly 50 retail outlets nationwide. For the approximately $15 million construction project in Sloatsburg, said Neil Blumenthal, also a co-founder and co-CEO, “We designed the interior to look and feel like any other Warby Parker space, while maintaining the functional elements of a traditional optical lab with its advanced machinery and state of the art conveyor

EF Academy opens $22 million residence hall in Thornwood BY ALEESIA FORNI firstname.lastname@example.org
$22 million, 55,000-squarefoot residence hall constructed on the 97-acre campus of EF Academy in Thornwood recently opened its doors to a new group of high school students. The four-story residence hall was finished in September and joins the private boarding school’s 350,000-square-foot main campus building. The recently renovated main building includes residences, a café, library, classrooms, administrative offices and athletic facilities. The site is also home to a second 50,000-square-foot academic building. More than 700 students ages 14 to 19 attend the school in the town of Mount Pleasant. According to school officials, this new residence hall positions the academy to gradually increase its enrollment over the next 15 to 20 years and potentially accommodate 1,500 students. EF Academy, an affiliate of Switzerlandbased EF Education First Ltd., bought the former Thornwood Conference Center property at 582-590 Columbus Ave. for $17 million from the Legion of Christ. The Legionaries, a Roman Catholic order of priests who used the site for its headquarters and a training seminary, suffered financial losses after scandalous revelations about the order’s founder surfaced following his death in 2008. The Legionaries acquired the property for $33.7 million in 1996 from IBM Corp., which built the corporate conference center. Shawna Sullivan Marino, a director with EF Education First, said the new residence hall represents the latest milestone in the ongoing revitalization of the campus. When EF Academy acquired the building in 2014, the for-profit school undertook a $27 million, four-month interior and exterior renovation to convert the former IBM buildings to its new use as a boarding school. “Whenever possible, we sought to work with local construction partners on the project, which created a significant number of temporary construction jobs,” Marino said. White Plains-based Scully Construction was one such partner. The company built the 250-bed residence on “a very tight construction schedule,” according to co-owner Brian Keating. Ground was broken on the residence hall in January 2016. Marino said the residence hall will increase tax revenues to the town as well as provide community members and students with cultural exchange opportunities. EF Education First also owns the EF International Language Center in
Tarrytown. The Language Center, which is on the 25-acre former Marymount College campus, hosts roughly 5,000 students from 70 countries. Marino said EF Education First’s Tarrytown campus continues to see improvements and modernizations to its facilities and infrastructure as part of a fiveyear development plan. EF Academy has additional campuses in Oxford and Devon, England.

The Business of Council of Westchester commissioned a report in 2012 by Energy Strategies Inc. that estimated a drain of $11.5 billion from the local economy if Indian Point were to close. The New York Independent System Operator, the nonprofit that manages the state’s electrical grid, said this year in a filing to the state Public Service Commission that “retaining all existing nuclear generators is critical to the state’s carbon emission reduction requirements as well as maintaining electric system reliability.” Concerns about the impact on energy costs and reliability, as well as to the overall economy of Westchester, were voiced immediately following the announcement. Local 1-2 New York, a union representing 350 Indian Point operators, released a statement critical of Cuomo. “The fact remains that there is absolutely no infrastructure in place now, nor will there be in 2021, that will provide clean, zero emission power that Indian Point supplies today,” said James T. Slevin, president of the union. Arthur Kremer, chairman of the New York Affordable Reliable Electricity Alliance, a group that advocated for the relicensing of the plant, blamed a “toxic business environment” for the closure. “Indian Point has been the backbone of New York’s electricity system for over 40 years,” Kremer said. “Its closure in 2021 will mean fewer jobs, higher electricity costs, lost economic opportunity, higher taxes and higher emissions for Westchester and the region.” But the deal was widely praised by environmental groups in the Hudson Valley. Riverkeeper called the deal a “landmark agreement.” “This agreement provides what we’ve been fighting for for decades: a definite early closing date for Indian Point – our biggest existential threat in the region,” Riverkeeper President Paul Gallay said. “It’s a win for the safety of our communities, a win for the Hudson River and all the rich variety of life within it and a win for a clean,
sustainable energy future.” Both local and national environmental advocacy groups, including Scenic Hudson, the National Resources Defense Council, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and Friends of the Earth, released statements praising the decision as well. “The accelerated closure and other provisions of the settlement will protect the health and safety of New Yorkers and the integrity of the Hudson River,” said Ned Sullivan, president of Scenic Hudson in the joint press release with Riverkeeper. At a press conference, Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino pointed to Cuomo’s advocacy for a multibilliondollar ratepayer subsidy to three upstate nuclear plants, approved in 2016 as part of the state’s Clean Energy Standard, which he called “incredible hypocrisy.” “Are lives in the southern part of the state more precious than lives upstate,” asked Astorino, a Republican who opposed Cuomo for governor in 2014. “How do you equate that in his mind? That it is unsafe here, but OK up there.” Cuomo has pitched upstate nuclear plants as an emission-free energy bridge to a future where the state draws at least half of its energy from renewable sources. But he also maintained that Indian Point’s location in the New York metropolitan region made it too dangerous. Astorino recognized the economic factors that Entergy cited in its closure, but said Cuomo’s actions helped force the plant’s closing as well. “It is very hard to do business in this state if you are getting beat to death by the state,” Astorino said, adding Cuomo was antagonistic to Entergy to the point it “cried uncle and gave up.” Astorino said the county stands to lose $4.5 million it gets yearly from Entergy. The town of Cortlandt will lose about $1 million per year and the village of Buchanan about 46 percent of its tax levy, according to Linda Puglisi, the Cortlandt town supervisor. “Everyone will be significantly impacted financially, most importantly our taxpayers,” Puglisi said at the press conference following Astorino. Puglisi called on Cuomo to create a panel to study the economic and environmental impacts of the plant’s shutdown. Those impacts will include the Hendrick Hudson School District. Superintendent Joseph E. Hochreiter said the school district stands to lose more than $23 million from its operating budget without tax dollars from Entergy. “I can tell you that if 30 percent of our revenue dries up, we’re going to have to make some very dangerous and very unfortunate decisions,” Hochreiter said.

a political target. Some on Capitol Hill have been vocal for years about wanting to kill federal funding for Planned Parenthood, although they have been unable to do so. That is almost certain to change under the Trump administration. PPHP said, “All members of the board of directors at PPHP are confident that Planned Parenthood will persevere through any challenges that lay ahead and the organization will continue to provide essential health care services, education programs and advocacy efforts.” PPHP is one of 56 affiliates of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and operates 10 health centers in Westchester, Rockland and Suffolk counties. In 2015, PPHP provided services to more than 34,000 patients in more than 59,000 visits. It offered more than 2,300 education and training programs, reaching 30,000 youth and adults. PPHP has served the community for 83 years.

A.G. Williams Painting Co., located in Pelham and Old Greenwich and founded in 1906 by Arthur George Williams, recently celebrated 110 years of “Painting with Pride and Passion.” George Williams, current president and CEO, attributes the success and staying power of his family-run business to its professionalism and commitment to serving clients. As one of Westchester County’s leading painting companies, A.G. Williams has developed a loyal customer base. Despite a sales decrease in 2009, A.G. Williams embraced risks like investing in internal resources and reducing prices. “Rather than focusing on managing tasks, we focused on employee roles, achieving goals and adding resource managers,” said Williams. “We emphasized the value of collaboration and remained open to new ideas, putting into practice the concept that we are a team, not a group of individuals.” Long-time friend and customer Joe Armentano, CEO of Paraco Gas, said “You get the best customer service when you have caring people. On both sides with the workers and the bosses, everyone cares about everyone else. So, it’s a synergy and you have to maintain that commitment to go on for hundreds of years.” The company also continues to expand its dedication to social responsibility. In the last 10 years, A.G. Williams has donated more than $1 million in cash and services to charities throughout Westchester and Fairfield counties. “Giving back is part of who I am,” said George Williams. “It creates a better company culture that promotes volunteerism and encourages employees to go the extra mile.” “We built the company on top-quality and world-class service, and no matter how large we get we never want to lose those values,” added Arthur Williams, co-president and COO.
The Westchester Community Foundation has launched its Professional Advisory Council, a group of leading professional advisors dedicated to promoting philanthropy in Westchester. The council will work with professional advisors to help them be better prepared to talk with their clients about philanthropy. “Professional advisors play an important role in assisting their clients with their philanthropy and charitable giving,” noted Kathy N. Rosenthal, chairperson of the council and member of the foundation’s board of advisors. “They can also find it personally rewarding.” Jennifer Hu Corriggio, director of philanthropy and donor relations, will serve as the staff liaison for the council. The members of the inaugural council are: Kathy N. Rosenthal, Rosenthal & Markowitz, LLP; Jose A. Reynoso, Clarfeld Financial Advisors; James T. Ausili, Bleakley Platt & Schmidt, LLP; Michael Markhoff, Danziger & Markhoff, LLP; Karen J. Walsh, Walsh & Amicucci LLP; Dale Akinla, Morgan Stanley; Rita K. Gilbert, Hyman & Gilbert; David Ringler, Merrill Lynch; Larry Thaul, Millenium Financial, Inc.; Steve Condon, Benjamin F.

NEW DIRECTORS AT NYMC’S LONG-TERM CARE CENTER Dr. Robert W. Amler, dean of New York Medical College’s School of Health Sciences and Practice and vice president for government affairs, has named Kenneth Knapp, assistant professor of health policy and management, and Hasanat Kenneth Knapp and Hasanat Alamgir Alamgir, associate professor and chair of the Department of Health Policy and Management, as co-directors of the Center for Long-Term Care, formerly called the Center for Long-Term Care Policy and Research. Despite the name change, the center retains its mission of improving the quality of long-term care through research, education and public policy development. Knapp said, “The center’s primary purpose is to conduct multidisciplinary research to address the diverse health and social service needs of those in need of long-term care due to chronic illness or disability, both young and old. We are also interested in those providing care, both family caregivers and paid paraprofessionals. Long-term care remains at a critical juncture in the United States, due to demographic trends that leave more people needing care and fewer family caregivers available to provide that care, and also due to the high turnover rate among paid caregivers.” “The work of the center is as relevant now as it ever has been,” added Alamgir, “and our hope is that the results of our work will have impact and influence for years to come.”
