GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Greenburgh Daily Voice accepts signed and original letters to the editor up to 350 words. To submit your letter, e-mail

To The Editor:

On Wednesday evening I received a letter from Rick Rucoba, Public Affairs Manager for Akzo Nobel advising that their company has terminated contractual relations with the Jefferson and is starting to market the property for commercial or industrial purposes.

In recent months hundreds of "NO JEFFERSON" lawn signs have appeared in front of homes in Ardsley, unincorporated Greenburgh and Dobbs Ferry. The Texas company had proposed to build 272 rental apartments at a former chemical manufacturing plant site on the Ardsley and Greenburgh border. Residents had numerous complaints - ranging from significant traffic in Ardsley, parking problems, impact to the schools, flooding.

This news is expected to be greeted with lots of smiles from a community that was almost unanimous in their opposition against the proposed development. I thanked Mr. Rucoba for listening to the community and expressed an interest in working with his company to find an acceptable use of the property. Congratulations to the hard working and dedicated members of our community for their effectiveness.
