An Update on The Croft:

The deadline for submissions to dismantle this old house or to propose an onsite repurposing was March 1, 2015.  Although numerous proposals were received Teatown’s Board of Directors determined that none were fully complete which would allow for acceptance by Teatown.  Being committed to finding the best solution compatible with Teatown’s mission, Teatown’s Board voted to extend the deadline until September 30, 2015 allowing it to continue a dialogue with those submissions that initially met Teatown’s crtieria.  The Board of Directors will also continue to accept new submissions  during the period ending September 30, 2015 and may at any time over the 6 month period  choose to accept a submission.
