NYS promised to repave Hillside Ave last year. However, the low bidder is unable to complete the work so the repaving has been delayed. Hopefully for only a short period of time. NYS roads located in greenburgh are in bad shape! The NYS DOT did confirm that they will repave Saw Mill River Road in Ardsley this season -as promised. Their letter to me follows... PAUL FEINER

Honorable Paul J. Feiner Supervisor, Town of Greenburgh 177 Hillside Ave.
Greenburgh, NY 10607
Dear Supervisor Feiner:
I am replying to your letter dated June 20, 2019 requesting an update on the paving project on Route 100 between Route 119 (Tarrytown Rd) & Virginia Road. I am unable to provide a definitive timeline regarding when this work will commence. The current low bidder for this contract has been deemed unable to fulfill the requirements of the contract; therefore, the New York State Department of Transportation will be working with the bonding insurance company to complete the paving work. Going forward, I will make every attempt to keep you aware of progress regarding this contract and the paving work.
Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience if you wish to discuss this further.
Lance MacMillan, P.E. Regional Director
UPDATE; EDGEMONT INCORPORATION PETITION SUFFICIENCY DECISION -- i made my decision on the Edgemont incorporation petition today as required by NYS law and will file the decision and attachments with the Town Clerk next week as per the statute requirements. The decision will be posted on the town website when filed.
Community Highlight: Greenburgh, New York
Cities and towns across the country are using the Time for Trees initiative as a tool to increase public awareness of the importance of community trees. As part of the Tree City USA program, each recognized community is an active partner of this initiative. This year, the Town of Greenburgh, New York, (a nine-year Tree City USA community) held its Arbor Day Celebration on Sunday, April 28, as part of a larger full-week Earth Day event. During the celebration, town forestry officer Aaron Schmidt planted a 12-foot clump river birch tree on the grounds of the Nature Center with the help of more than 35 children from the community. The town also utilized Time for Trees
handouts, personalized with the town logo, as an opportunity to provide public education about the benefits of trees. The week-long event brought approximately 250 community members together to celebrate trees and the environment and included Arbor Day posters, book marks, and tree seedlings provided by Con-Edison.
