Town Grants Greentree Zoning Change
At its March 12 regular meeting, the North Hempstead Town Board voted 4-0 to approve an amendment to its zoning code to accommodate the Greentree Foundation. The Greentree Foundation is the owner of the 420-acre former Whitney property in Manhasset. The change adds a "permitted use" to the Residential Open Space article, which reads: "Uses carried out by not-for-profit, charitable, eleemosynary, educational or governmental entities, or international organizations primarily within enclosed buildings. Uses permitted under this paragraph shall be limited to conferences, retreats, and other such gatherings intended to bring about the improvement of the human condition and promote international cooperation."
