Bronxville Village Trustee Report: Recycling, Repairs & A Big Thank You PDF Print Email

By Staff

March 18, 2020: The Village of Bronxville Board of Trustees met on March 9, 2020.

The meeting included a presentation organized by the Green Committee on Food Scrap Recycling. A Food Scrap Recycling program enables participants to gather food scraps in a special bin. The food scraps are then either picked up with regular recycling or dropped off in larger containers in dedicated areas. This is a program that some other towns and villages have implemented, and Bronxville can consider.

Bronxville Village Administrator, Jim Palmer, reported that the State has approved $250k to repair the underpass in Bronxville. The repairs will eliminate the "yellow flag conditions" identified by the State. According to Palmer, the yellow flags repairs include "straightening, sanding and painting multiple steel columns." 

Additional aesthetic improvements will include "new railings along both sides of the underpass, sidewalk repair/replacement, some brick along the sidewalk and painting the retaining wall below the railing." Repairs will also include "additional steel painting and bridge height signage." The bid drawings should be finalized this month. The probable start date for the project is June 1, 2020.

Finally, Mayor Marvin and other Trustees recognized the contribution of Trustee Bill Barton, who will be leaving the Board of Trustees after serving four terms.

Barton described the moment as "bittersweet" and the village board as "at the top of volunteer organizations, mostly because of the people and staff." He talked about how government works best at the local level and that how the village board is really focused on getting things done.

Trustee Bob Underhill thanked Barton for his commitment to infrastructure and environmental sustainability. Trustee Mark Wood spoke about Barton leaving the village in better shape than when he started.

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.
