The Greenburgh Town Board voted last night to apply for a New York State community block grant (CDBG) to build a sidewalk along Secor Road in the vicinity of the Greenburgh housing authority low income town houses. This sidewalk would provide families with a safe way to walk from their home to the local bus stop on Saw Mill River Road. The town is seeking $240,000 in CDBG funds for the installation of about 1,000 linear feet of disabled accessible sidewalks.
This initiative is the latest in a series of initiatives the town has taken in recent months to increase the number of sidewalks being built around town. 1.6 miles of new sidewalks has been built or will be built soon. See memo below from Commissioner of Planning
