The Town Board issued a request for proposals from developers/housing managers for the WESTHELP property. The following is a brief summary of the responses we received today. The Town Board will discuss the proposals tomorrow at 9 AM at the Greenburgh Town Board work session. Our meetings are televised live on public access TV and streamed live on the internet. We have invited our Greenburgh Legislators – Alfreda Williams, Mary Jane Shimsky and Michael Smith to the work session. Ken Jenkins, chair of the Board has also been invited. Although Ferncliff Manor submitted the highest bid to the town, the Greenburgh Legislators had expressed opposition to the Ferncliff proposal in recent months. Each of the following proposals will be posted on the town website –sometime tomorrow, if not sooner.
