GREAT NEWS--SIDEWALK BUILT AT HEALTH CENTER BEFORE SCHEDULE..ELECTRONIC WASTE DRIVE HASTINGS
Release Date: November 20, 2012

ONE LESS CONTROVERSY--SIDEWALK AT GREENBURGH HEALTH CENTER BUILT A FEW YEARS BEFORE SCHEDULE!
Construction of the Greenburgh Neighborhood Health Center (295 Knollwood Road- near the library) is moving along. The 30,000 sq foot building looks like it could open soon. In recent years some residents objected to the health center because they claimed that a permanent sidewalk from the health center to Route 119 would not be built for at least a few years. A temporary walk had been planned until a permanent sidewalk could be built.
Members of the Town Board always pledged that the sidewalk would be built before a permanent certificate of occupancy is issued. It's important because many of the health center's clients come to the center via public transportation. Having a sidewalk is important for mothers in strollers and people in wheelchairs. Knollwood Road is a busy state road.
I am pleased to report that the promises made to the community have been kept. The new sidewalk (not a temporary walk) is currently under construction and should be ready for pedestrian use within days!
A thank you to the Broadview Civic Association for lobbying for the sidewalk and highlighting it's importance. I am thrilled that the new sidewalk will be built before the new health center opens up.
