GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- For pedestrians in Edgemont, new sidewalks may be just around the corner. On Wednesday evening, the Greenburgh Town Board will take the next steps needed preparing for new sidewalks in Edgemont.
"Over the years many parents of young children who live in Old Edgemont, Cotswold and Southern Greenville have requested that the town construct sidewalks on Seely Place so students can walk to school safely," Town Supervisor Paul Feiner said. "Parents who reside in the Southern Greenville neighborhood have asked the town to build a sidewalk on Fort Hill Road from Jackson Avenue to Ardsley Road. If a sidewalk is built at this location children from the Southern Greenville section of town would be able to safely walk to and from the Greenville Elementary school."
The Commissioner of Public Works has advised that the next step would be to hire an engineer to provide engineering design services for both potential sidewalks. The Town Board will vote on Wednesday evening to authorize the request for proposals.
