Peekskill seeks proposals for two former firehouses

December 27, 2018 11:27AM

Having recently centralized its firefighting operations, Peekskill is considering selling off two firehouses that are no longer in use, the Westchester County Business Journal reported. The city, which once had five firehouses, is planning to seek proposals for the two sites. “We’ve already received a couple of expressions of interest,” Peekskill City Manager Richard Leins told the outlet. “The new uses would have to comply with current zoning and could be residential or mixed-use.” Leins didn’t disclose how much money Peekskill would seek for the two firehouses or provide information about their square footage, but noted that it was “important to get the properties back on the city’s tax roll.” Peekskill is continuing to use two other former firehouse sites for city purposes, and another site has been rented. [WBJ]
