Release Date: March 20, 2011
The Greenburgh Town Board will devote the first hour of the Wednesday evening, March 23rd meeting to discussing the state of real estate in Greenburgh. If you are a realtor we invite you to attend the meeting to discuss home sales/commercial sales in different sections of the town. The meeting starts at 7:30 PM and will be aired on public access TV. How is the town doing? Are sales up, down? Comparing this year to previous years, are properties selling for more or less? What are we, as a town doing—right and wrong? Why do people move to the town? How important are the services? If services are cut due to the budget – will that impact home sales? Are we doing what we should be doing to attract commercial businesses?
TOMORROW EVENING-, Monday March 21st at 7:30 PM the Greenburgh Town Board and town officials will meet with residents of Edgemont to discuss issues of concern. Meeting will take place at the Edgemont High School. This is part of our annual outreach series held in neighborhoods around the town.

PROPOSAL TO HELP SENIORS WHO DON'T HAVE CARS AFTER A & P AND PATHMARK CLOSES-- REQUESTING SUPERMARKETS THAT BENEFIT FROM FUTURE SHUTTLE SERVICE TO REIMBURSE THE TOWN FOR OUR COSTS IF WE TAKE THEM TO THEIR STORES...
A few weeks ago,after the A & P announced plans to close the A & P and Pathmark I suggested that the town offer seniors shuttle service to the supermarkets that are serving the community. I am suggesting that we ask the supermarkets to absorb the costs of this service since they will be benefitting from the business. Will be reaching out to all supermarkets in our area and will ask if they would like the town to transport seniors/disabled residents to their supermarkets on a regular basis. This could be a win win. The town is offering seniors and people who don't have cars transportation to supermarkets. The seniors receive an important service that is needed and they get to participate in an enjoyable activity. The supermarkets benefit too--more customers and free advertising from the town.
