The Pelham Preservation & Garden Society is a not-for-profit organization
incorporated in 1999 for the purpose of fostering community understanding and appreciation of the architecture, historic structures,
natural beauty and aesthetic character of the Town of Pelham and surrounding areas. As a group of volunteer citizens,
we undertake activities to ensure the preservation, restoration and enhancement of these resources.
The Pelham Preservation & Garden Society opposes high-rise apartments
like this that are out of scale and character with Pelham. This and other apartment buildings are being built and proposed using a new "floating zone" change to the village zoning code, which the Pelham Preservation Society opposed. The Pelham Preservation supports
reasonably-scaled development, such as Marbury Corners, which was built within the zoning code's long-standing height limit of 45 feet. We have issued a statement raising concern about the significantly larger buildings now under consideration by the village and invite everyone to become
familiar with the these various development proposals and the detrimental effect they could have on Pelham.
