Letter to the Editor in Support of Bill Fredericks for Village Trustee

May 10, 2021

Letter to the Editor:

As village residents head to the polls on March 16th, Bronxville is fortunate to have a candidate for Village Trustee as qualified as Bill Fredericks.

The undersigned urge you to vote for Bill on the strength of his years of service to the village, knowledge of the community and commitment to representing all of our residents.

Since 2009, Bill has served on the Bronxville Zoning Board of Appeals, and chaired it since 2013.  In that role, he spearheaded a recent review and reform of the village’s Zoning Code, providing better notice to neighbors of proposed construction projects and subjecting all “teardowns and rebuilds” to at least some review.

Bill grew up in Bronxville, attended the Bronxville school for 9 years and returned in 1997 with his wife Ivy and children Charlotte and Thomas.  He has been active in community affairs, serving as a trustee of the Bronxville Historical Conservancy, treasurer of the Bronxville-Tuckahoe-Eastchester Nature Preserve, and as an active member of many other Bronxville organizations.

Bill also brings considerable legal expertise to his role as Trustee. A Columbia Law graduate, he has been named annually since 2012 to both US News and World Report’s “Best Lawyers” list in commercial litigation and SuperLawyers’ list of top New York securities litigators.

We are very fortunate to have a candidate of such accomplishment, experience and devotion to our community step forward.  We urge all our neighbors to join us in casting their votes on March 16th for Bill Fredericks for Village Trustee.

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.
