Staten Island elected officials look to compile list of properties vulnerable to development like Mo

In an effort to stop Staten Island from losing another jewel like Mount Manresa, City Councilman Steven Matteo is teaming up with other elected officials to catalog large private and city-owned properties vulnerable to development - the first step to preserving them, he said.

Matteo, along with Borough President James Oddo, Minority Leader Vincent Ignizio (R-South Shore), and Councilwoman Debi Rose (D-North Shore) will work with the College of Staten Island to "identify and catalog every large private and city-owned" property in the borough that is currently open space or a being used minimally - like the religious or nonprofit sites that have previously faced the prospect of being turned into rows of town homes.
