TOWN BOARD VOTES UNANIMOUSLY FOR TAXTER RIDGE
Release Date: May 15, 2003

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!
