Port Chester Looks At Possible Land Purchase To Expand Park

Grace Church Street site seen as good spot to provide parking for Edgewood Park.

Folks have been telling Jerry Terranova that the property at 201 Grace Church St. in Port Chester would never come up for sale.

But Terranova is a patient man.

The property, according to village officials, has indeed come up for sale and Terranova and fellow members of the Port Chester Park Commission know just what should be done with the site.

Terranova has asked the Port Chester village Board of Trustees to consider buying the property adjacent to Edgewood Park so that it can be used to expand the park and create a parking area.

Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla said the village has obtained appraisal information on the property to consider its options. Pilla said it is possible for Port Chester to use funds set aside for open space improvements for a possible purchase.

Park Commission members say it's rare for a property that is directly adjacent to a park to come on the market. They said the site, if made part of the park, would improve access to the park and improve safety for residents using the park.

Commission members say that current parking in the area of Edgewood is very limited.

The property is listed on the CJ Pagano & Sons real estate brokerage web site for sale at $375,000. The house is described as an 1.5-story, 1,152-square foot, two-bedroom Cape Code style single family home built in the 1930s.

The property, according to the brokerage's listing, was posted for sale on Thursday.

Mayor Pilla: You should have been receptive to Mr. Pagano's and the IDA's excellent proposal regarding the water front.You keep on tabling every thing, the table is going to collapse. Actually you should call it limbo(ing )

I do hope the Village takes purchasing this property very serious. This is an excellent opportunity to provide parking in this area to ensure safety and encourage use of the parks
