Bronxville Village Trustees February Meeting: Sustainable Westchester, Local Events, and Upcoming Public Hearing

By Staff

Feb. 14, 2024: The Village of Bronxville Board of Trustees met on February 12, 2024.

The meeting began with a presentation by the executive director of Sustainable Westchester regarding the Westchester Power Program.

Sustainable Westchester helps communities leverage their buying power to purchase electricity at competitive rates. It solicits bids from companies for the right to supply its communities with electricity, and the goal is to deliver electricity at the best rate. Sustainable Westchester also aims to provide a "green power" option to communities. Energy delivery is managed by Con Edison.

Mayor Marvin reported that the Bronxville Picture House had a sold-event event for the documentary about the Greystone Bakery. The Bakery's #1 customer is Ben & Jerry's ice cream which purchases the Bakery's brownies for their brownie ice cream. Because of this tie, Ben and Jerry were at the Picture House event. The Picture House is having another fundraiser on March 9th. The recent Historical Conservancy event featuring documentarian Ken Burns was also sold out. She also urged people to shop local.

Trustee Behrens reported that Haagen Dazs in Bronxville is closing for a month-long renovation. She also said that NYP Westchester in Bronxville is renovating the maternity wing and lobby.

Trustee Helen Knapp reported that the Bronxville Library patio project is on budget and on schedule.

Trustee Bill Fredericks reported that Maltby Park is being actively used.

Village Administrator Jim Palmer reported that Westchester County received an emergency declaration related to the September 29 rain event that caused flooding in Bronxville. As a result, Bronxville will be applying for $30k to $40k to help fund public infrastructure improvements.

He also reported that the village is scheduling a public hearing regarding a proposed local law that would require homeowners to inspect the sewer lines from the main line to their homes. The homeowner would need to provide proof to the village that they have had their line inspected and that it is in working condition when they make a major improvement to their residence or prior to the sale of their property.

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.
