Release Date: September 30, 2014

I am pleased to report that the Greenburgh Town Board unanimously approved a resolution to accept a one million dollar donation offered by AvalonBay communities and Robert Martin Company to be used solely for the purpose of funding the acquisition of undeveloped land abutting Taxter Ridge Park in the village of Tarrytown for dedication and use solely as a public park expansion for all town residents with no acquisition, maintenance, liability or other costs to residents of the unincorporated area of town.  The New York State Parks department endorsed the acquisition as did the village of Tarrytown.
RESPONDING TO EDGEMONT CONCERNS ABOUT SEELY PLACE SCHOOL  CROSSING UPDATE.. Board approves resolution tonight implementing no parking/no standing on Seely Place during designated school morning and afternoon hours.
  Over the years many Edgemont residents have expressed concern about children walking to the Seely Place School. Our new police chief, Chris McNerney, Sgt. Nick Reckson and I recently met with some parents, the School Superintendent and a representative of the Greenville Fire department. This is what we have done so far...
  • We have put out car/speed counters to gauge the vehicular volume attributable to Henry Street. We will study the Seely Place volume next. 
  • The Town Board approved a resolution tonight to implement no parking/no standing on Seely Place during designated morning and afternoon hours on school days. This will improve the flow of traffic on Seely PLace while increasing safety for students and parents.
  • The police department has completed site distance studies and will be installing a new crosswalk in front of the Greenville Community Church. This will include the addition of illuminated signs warning of the crosswalk.
  • the police department has had productive meetings with the Edgemont School District and we are partnering to continue to address the issues. The police department is reviewing additional traffic safety measures.
  •        *The police department is reviewing additional safety measures at the Greenville school. We are correcting the number of signs that were installed and amending the hours and days on the signs.
Town officials make housecalls to residents and neighborhood associations. We listen to community concerns. The Seely Pl vote is one example. Tonight Town Board members and department heads met with the N Elmsford Civic Association. We will follow up on their concerns. If you or your neighbors want town officials to hold a meeting on your street please advise. We work for you and want you to feel proud that you live in our town.
