GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Keeping children safe on their walk to Edgemont schools will be easier next year when the Town of Greenburgh begins adding sidewalks after receiving a recommendation from the Greenburgh Police Chief Chris McNerney.

The Greenburgh Town Board approved the additional sidewalks being built beginning in 2016 on Oct. 30 following a recommendation from McNerney, who said the sidewalks would make it safer for children to walk to school.

Edgemont has no school busing and the town has been building sidewalks to make it safer for children walking to schools. In 2015, 1.6 miles of new sidewalks were built, or are close to being built in different neighborhoods. Most have been paid for by developers as a condition of approval to build in the area.

In 2016 the town will include funds in the capital budget for sidewalk construction and also plans to seek federal/state grants to help expedite the safety initiative.
