Poll: What Should Yorktown Do With the Holland Sporting Club?

The Holland Sporting Club was once an exclusive posh summer resort and weekend getaway. The town is demolishing the buildings and crews are expected to finish by the end of the week.

The demolition of the Holland Sporting Club in Mohegan Lake has begun as the . Yorktown highway department members are about half way done with tearing down the 14 buildings on the lakeside property. 

For years, the property has been attracting vandals and the parcel of land has not been maintained.

The old Westchester Magazine article is very out of date. You can now hike from Woodlands Legacy Fields to Granite Knolls (Stony St). We are currently building trails in Granite Knolls (west of Stony St) that will connect with Sylvan Glen (later this summer). That gets you to Grant Ave at the south end of Mohegan Lake. There is no green space between there and Holland Sporting Club, but the local roads are not high traffic. From Woodlands you can go south onto Strang Blvd and shortly to FDR. Getting from the main part of FDR to the south eastern part where the old railbed leads to Turcos requires a few bridges. Pending environmental assessments and grant applications this will also be available in a year or so (optimistically).

The Town of Yorktown has done almost nothing to the Holland Sporting Club site in the past 12 years since they purchased it. They let it , ROT & lie fallow, maybe it should be turned over to the Westchester County Parks department....rather than opening it to possible private development.

Join with the local neighbors as they have plans to work with Yorktown Parks to make it available for limited passive use. At the Town Board meeting last Tuesday it appears that development is currently off the table.

Apparently there are others on the Town Planning Board who think the Holland Club Site should be turned into Condo or Mixed Use Development....rather than a town park/open space to increase the Yorktown tax base. http://www.theexaminernews.com/yorktowns-holland-sporting-club-demolished/

All those comments were made before the Town Board meeting where Grace implied that that option was off the table and none of the other board members objected.. None of the people quoted in the article on the Planning Board, which is not involved at this point.
