I am disappointed with the Order and Opinion of Judge Robinson, issued more than three years after the conclusion of the trial, and on his last day on the federal bench. It is not appropriate for a Court to substitute its judgment for the judgment of elected municipal officials who relied on the opinions of independent professional traffic consultants during the environmental review process. Here, in evaluating the church’s application to build a large combined school and church immediately adjacent to the busy entrance to the Sprain Brook Parkway on Dobbs Ferry Road, the Town relied on its traffic expert, who advised the Town that the project as proposed would cause unsafe and dangerous traffic conditions. I believe that it would have been irresponsible to disregard this conclusion. Notwithstanding Judge Robinson’s Opinion, I believe that nothing the Town did in evaluating the Church’s application violated any provision of law.
Furthermore, as anyone who lives in Greenburgh will agree, Greenburgh has an outstanding record in welcoming all religions, and I dispute any suggestion to the contrary. During my administration, numerous and diverse religious institutions have applied for and received approval for their projects. I have always maintained, and continue to maintain, that the Town would welcome the Fortress Bible Church at an appropriate and safe location in Greenburgh.
I will be discussing with the Town Board and the Town’s attorneys an appeal of Judge Robinson’s Order and Opinion.
How are leaves, composting and money linked?
Last year the Irvington DPW collected 2,000 tons of leaves in the Village. Dumping fees alone (not including labor, fuel, transport) cost $15/ton.
$15/ton x 2,000 tons = $30,000 ---YOUR TAXES!
Learn how to keep those leaves on your property and turn them into GOLD!!!! --high quality compost to fertilize your own garden beds and lawn.
