The Greenburgh Town Board voted unanimously at the May l4th meeting to
acquire 200 acres of Unification Church property as open space. The town will
pay one third of the cost (about $3.7 million) of the parkland, with the
state and county paying the rest. The town is applying for a low interest
rate loan (2.3% interest) from the state that will reduce the acquisition
cost for the average taxpayer to about $8-. At a town-wide community meeting
on Monday residents voted 200-l to support the acquisition. Many civic
associations, the Irvington Village Board & School Board, Village of
Tarrytown joined residents in supporting the acquisition.
Since Supervisor Feiner took office about l2 years ago the town has acquired
many acres of parkland. Once this closing takes place the town's parkland
expansion will increase from 224 acres (when Feiner took office) to 600 acres!
