On Feb. 28, members of the Westchester Municipal Officials Association (WMOA) co-signed a letter to Gov. Kathy Hochul voicing their concerns with, and disapproval of, some aspects of the New York State Housing Compact, a piece of legislation introduced by Hochul as part of her proposed 2023-24 state budget.

Chief among the concerns was Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), a provision in the proposed budget that would require Westchester municipalities within 15 miles of New York City to adjust their zoning to support 3 percent increases in housing capacity within three years of the budget’s effective date.
