Application #1: Pedestrian and traffic signal improvements to the intersection of Midland and Pondfield. The purpose of the improvements is to make the facilities of the “four corners” and the downtown fully accessible by upgrading the existing signalization and also adding pedestrian crosswalk signals. Other ADA improvements including new curbing and handicap ramps will also be part of the project.

Application #2: West Side Circle pedestrian and traffic safety improvements. The purpose of the project is to make the crosswalks at the Circle substantially more visible by adding rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFB) at the crosswalks to alert motorists of pedestrian crossings. Additional improvements include new handicap ramps and enhanced crosswalk striping.

-Scheduling a Public Hearing on proposed amendments to the Village's existing ban on gas powered leaf blowers. A copy of the draft local law will be made available on the Village's website in the coming weeks.

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.
