Oct. 10, 2018:  The Bronxville Village Board of Trustees was hard at work on issues important to our village at the board of trustees meeting last night in Bronxville. The meeting included a work session followed by an open regular meeting.

The work session focused on two subjects, the village comprehensive plan and the Bronxville Library HVAC system. The village is in the information-gathering stage for the comprehensive plan and will be seeking input from many different groups throughout the village and the general public. As Mayor Mary Marvin commented, “My hope is that there will be some innovative things in this new plan.”

Also discussed in the work session was the Bronxville Library HVAC system, which is in bad shape and in continual need of repair. As a result, the library is looking at what would be involved in replacing it. In the open regular meeting, the board of trustees authorized spending a maximum of $70,000 on architectural fees to determine exactly what needs to be done and the costs involved. The board also urged the library team to investigate possible sources of funding for this project.

The public open meeting also included an update from Jim Palmer on work under way to clean out half of the village’s 400 catch basins. Mayor Marvin noted that one big problem is leaves because they clog the catch basins. She asked residents to please bag leaves, have gardeners take them away, or otherwise keep them off the streets so they don’t end up in the drains. Click here for the mayor's column in this week's MyhometownBronxville in which she discusses the effect of the buildup of leaves.

Jim Palmer also reminded everyone that there is an upcoming general election in November and that the village website would include information on polling locations. 

Other business of interest is that Bronxville has become part of “Sustainable Westchester,” which is a consortium of towns that pursue sustainable resources and share costs.    

Finally, if you are interested in the Village of Bronxville Board of Trustees meetings but cannot attend, you can watch them live on TV on channel 74 on cable or channel 47 on Fios.

Bronxville Overview

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.
