Members of the Greenburgh Town Board will be conducting a site visit at the Proposed Brightview

Assisted Living Community site tomorrow (Saturday) at noon. We will meet with neighbors at the site 191 Old White Plains Road (across from the new Stop & Shop on Route 119). Brightview is proposing a 3 story 90 unit residence on five acres. There will be 45 parking spaces. The footprint is proposed to be 25,000 sq feet and about 70,000 total building square footage. You are invited to join us at this site visit.

LEARN HOW TO MULCH LEAVES—The Greenburgh Nature Center is holding their first mulching demonstration for landscapers and home owners on Saturday, September 29 at 10 AM at Longview Road (off of Fort Hill) in Edgemont. It’s free. You can learn how to mulch

The Nature Center provided me with the names of landscapers who mulch leaves. No need to bag most of your leaves when mulching would be cheaper and better for your lawns. If you want a copy of the list – please advise.

A FANTASTIC EVENT – TOMORROW IN DOBBS FERRY (Dobbs Ferry Festa). It’s one of the most enjoyable programs of the year—great for the family. The main streets in the downtown shopping area are closed to traffic from 1 to 8 pm. Interact with your neighbors. Eat delicious food, listen to great music. Dance in the streets! Have fun
