Hello Hartsdale Neighbors,

Its finally Fall and the new school year is upon us. We hope everyone is settling into their routines and enjoying the cooler weather. We have some important news and announcements to share so let’s get right to it.

GCSD Open Board Seat- “The Board of Education of the Greenburgh Central School District announces a vacancy due to the recent resignation of Claudia Glaser. Ms. Glaser was first elected to the Board of Education for the 2011-12 school year and was serving her third term when she submitted her resignation effective September 4, 2018. The Board thanks Ms. Glaser for her years of service and wishes her and her family well in their new endeavors.

The Greenburgh Central School District Board of Education is seeking to fill the Board of Ed vacancy immediately. The vacancy will be filled by School Board appointment, with the appointed individual holding the seat until the School Board election on May 21, 2019 (at which time someone will be elected to fill the seat for the remainder of the term). The Board of Education is seeking letters from residents interested in filling the opening. Those interested in serving on the School Board are asked to submit the application, resume and any other information you would like the Board to consider to Ivy Kraus, District Clerk, Greenburgh Central School District, 475 W. Hartsdale Avenue, Hartsdale, NY 10530 or via email to ikraus@greenburghcsd.org by 3:00pm 9/21/2018.

The vacancy announcement and application form are available on the district website: https://www.greenburghcsd.org/

Four Corners- HNA leadership has been meeting and speaking with Town Board Members in an effort to push forward the 4 Corners Redevelopment plan. We were originally told by Supervisor Feiner to expect this to be on the Town Agenda; to be referred to the Planning Board in September. He is now saying there will be additional delays because of opposition from certain Town Board members. Unfortunately, there are now two more empty storefronts as both the Chase Bank and Ninjaya market have closed recently.

We believe at this point, we are long past the time for action by the town board. We believe the opportunity to rezone and revitalize the Four Corners intersection in Hartsdale is a unique opportunity for the town to reinvigorate the area. With the SALT tax updates, pending Edgemont Incorporation and ever rising taxes, Hartsdale residents need tax relief now!

There is currently a Town Board Work Session for 9/25(Time TBD) scheduled to discuss the proposal. We urge you to email the Town Board at TownBoard@greenburghny.com and tell them that you want action on 4C.

Elmwood Country Club Development- Ridgewood Realty, the private developer who purchased the Elmwood property with an eye to redevelop it into an Active 55+ Townhome community recently met with the Planning Board. This was despite the fact, that just like 4C, the Town Board has not moved to act on this proposal. Click here to read the Letter to the Editor in the Scarsdale Inquirer by HNA President Eric Zinger on this subject. We believe whether you are for or against the requesting PUD and zoning change, the Town Board should act.

Edgemont Incorporation- We’ll keep this brief. No update since our July email. We are still waiting on Judge Cacace to issue her decision on the Town Appeal. For a recap of what has been happening, check out our webpage, hartsdaleneighbors.org.
