Jawonio In New City Seeks Permission To Act On $18M Site Redevelopment

NEW CITY, N.Y. – Claiming that 80 percent of their facility is in a state of disrepair, officials at Jawonio on North Little Tor Road are looking to spend $18 million to redevelop their 16-acre campus, according to lohud.com.

Though the grounds are considered “up to code,” and safe, officials at the facility for people of all ages living with developmental disabilities say it no longer makes sense to “keep doing Band-Aid fixes,” according to lohud.com.

Among the intended changes to the site are the demolition of several buildings, the relocation of three cabins, the addition of 379 parking spaces, the construction of a two-story, 72,091 square-foot building and the addition of a 4,000 square-foot cabin, according to lohud.com.

Jawonio, which has other facilities in New Hempstead and Yonkers, has sought approval from the Clarkstown Planning Board to move forward with the project, according to lohud.com, which reported that work on the project, if approved, would run from June 2017-December 2018.
