Town Board to vote on resolution -sidewalk feasibility study near Edgemont schools
Release Date: January 10, 2015

 

 

The Greenburgh Town Board will vote on Wednesday evening on a resolution authorizing the Commissioner of Public Works to issue a request for proposals for a traffic study to determine whether sidewalks should be built along portions of Seely Place, Ardsley Road and Fort Hill Road---streets that lead to schools.

 

Over the years a number of parents have called for sidewalks at these locations so children can walk more safely to school. In addition to this action step the town has been in contact with federal and state officials to review grant opportunities. Recently, the village of Ardsley built a sidewalk on Heatherdell Road -leading to the Ardsley High School using federal dollars.

If other neighborhoods near schools are interested in having the town review the feasibility of building sidewalks near schools please advise. This can be an ongoing initiative for the town.

This is  a link to an organization promoting safe routes to schools.
