What's being built near the Greenburgh library....deer conference 4/30...conference for dads Tues.
Release Date: April 05, 2015

The old WESTHAB homeless shelter (Howard Johnson's before that) is located next to the Greenburgh Library on Route 119. The property borders the unincorporated section of Greenburgh but is actually in the village of Elmsford.  Some residents asked me what's happening to the property since construction has started. The Mayor of Elmsford, Robert Williams, sent me the following e mail yesterday...

The old Howard Johnson's/Westhab at 290 East Main Street
is going to be 80 residential rental units, higher end rents.
About 3 years ago the same owner proposed a Hotel
and we brought all the neighbors in behind the complex and
it was agreed to no Hotel.
He then proposed the 80 rental units and the neighbors
were in favor of that, so he has started


Tuesday, April 7, 2015
7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Westchester County Center, White Plains, NY

The goal of the conference is to inspire, educate and challenge attendees to improve services and programs for fathers, and to support and educate father themselves. 


Westchester officials will host an informational forum, “Strategies for Deer Management in Westchester’s Suburban Communities,”  on Thursday, April 30, for municipal officials, land managers and other stakeholders

The forum will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Westchester County Center in White Plains. 

The morning sessions will begin with an overview of the history of deer populations in New York State, presented by Rod Christie, executive director of Mianus River Gorge Preserve. Bernd Blossy, an associate professor at Cornell University, will discuss defining and measuring success of deer management efforts. Kevin Clarke, a senior wildlife biologist from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), will discuss management efforts in the state’s region 3-S, which includes Westchester County.

William C. Harding, executive director of the Watershed Council of the New York State Department of State, will start off the afternoon sessions by introducing regional approaches to deer management. Specific methodologies will be outlined by four speakers: Laura Simon of the Humane Society of the United States (non-lethal methods); Allan Rutberg, Tufts University (contraception); NYSDEC’s Clarke (hunting); and Ken Preusser, US Department of Agriculture (culling).  The village of Hastings on Hudson (part of the town of Greenburgh) is currently experimenting with deer contraception--something the town will be reviewing.

Examples of deer management methods used in municipalities will be presented by Pound Ridge Police Chief Dave Ryan; Dan Aitchison, a senior curator with Westchester County Parks; Kevin Carter and Michael J. Rubbo, both representing Teatown Lake Reservation.

Both the morning and afternoon sessions will conclude with a panel discussion and an opportunity for participants to ask questions.
