PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pleasantville may allow four-story buildings in certain parts of its downtown business district, according to a report by The Examiner.

The village, which is in the process of updating its master plan, is weighing that and other development-friendly recommendations made by New York City-based consultants, BFJ Planning, The Examiner reported.

According to The Examiner, these other areas were addressed in a working draft of the plan:

  • Lowering minimum land area requirements. BFJ said that the current standard of 1,000 to 2,000 square feet per dwelling unit is too high, and that 800 to 1,000 square feet would help development.
  • An assisted living facility downtown. One board member thought it would take up too much room in an already dense area, and wouldn't┬ánecessarily benefit local businesses.
  • Lowering the number of parking spaces required for residential buildings.
The Village Board will hold a public meeting on the master plan sometime in September.
