GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- This week, the Greenburgh Town Board will hold an important public hearing on an application by a developer to build 272 rental apartments across from Rivertowns Square in the unincorporated section of Ardsley.

The hearing will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening at Greenburgh Town Hall and all are encouraged to attend.

This application has generated significant controversy so far; about 1,000 local residents have signed an online petition opposing the application. The Ardsley Village Board, PTA and School Board have also expressed concerns that the project is too large and will cause issues for the surrounding neighborhood.

Via email, Town Supervisor Paul Feiner listed several initiatives that he plans on making the developer pay for if construction is approved. The list includes:

  • Widening of both Lawrence Street and Saw Mill River Road to include turning lanes as appropriate from Lawrence street to entrance of the thruway. I believe that the entire length of Saw Mill River Road from Jackson Ave to Ardsley downtown should be widened.
  • Construction of sidewalks and bike lanes on both Lawrence and Saw Mill Road from Jackson to downtown Ardsley to promote safe pedestrian/bicycling.
  • Construction of an overpass from Lawrence Street westbound to Saw Mill River Parkway Southbound.
  • Construction of additional parking in downtown Ardsley to address the shortage of parking in the business district.
  • Possible construction of additional parking at area train stations to address commuter parking problems.
  • A requirement that frequent shuttle service be provided to train station and downtown Ardsley.
"We also need to analyze ability of first responders to come to the assistance of those with emergency medical needs if the Parkway is closed and there are major traffic jams on Lawrence and on Saw Mill River Road," said Feiner.
