From The Bronxville Village Trustees: Retail Cannabis Prohibited & Traffic Safety Improvements

By Bronxville Village Hall

Sept. 16, 2021: At their July 22nd meeting, Mayor Marvin introduced Village Justices William Primps and Natasha Nordahl and Court Clerks Kelly DeSimone and Yecenia Tovar to provide an update on the work of the Justice Court.


The Village Board of Trustees adopted legislation to prohibit the establishment of retail cannabis dispensaries and on-site cannabis consumption establishments in the Village.

The Village Board also held hearings on and approved two important projects for submittal under the Federal Government’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program:

Midland and Pondfield Intersection: The purpose of this project is to upgrade the intersection with state-of-the art traffic signals, pedestrian crosswalk signals (with push buttons) designed for the hearing and visually impaired and other ADA compliant improvements including curbing and handicap ramps.

West Side Circle: Purpose of this project is to design and construct crosswalk improvements that will enhance pedestrian safety by making the pedestrian more visible to oncoming vehicles.

Other pedestrian and traffic safety measures implemented during the summer or under review include: The installation of two additional digital speed radar devices; one has been placed near the crosswalk in front of Christ Church as motorists come down the Sagamore Road hill and the second along Route 22 near Elm Rock Road for traffic heading southbound.

Crosswalks: A majority of crosswalks have been restriped this summer. New crosswalks were also striped at the Midland-Tanglewylde intersection – one across Midland Avenue to Tanglewylde and one across the easterly side of Tanglewylde. New led traffic signals were also installed at this intersection.

Speed Hump Policy: This fall the Village Board will consider the adoption of a speed hump policy in an effort to establish guidelines under which speed humps will be considered for installation on a residential street.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
