SAVE THE DATE—About 30 student interns will be organizing a rally next Thursday, August 2 in front of Macy Park trying to persuade NYS officials to repave Saw Mill River Road which is fill of potholes, bumps. The road is in desperate need of repaving. There are other state roads in Greenburgh also in need of repaving.
We encourage residents to join the student interns at this rally. There are 2 goals of the rally: 1) to persuade NYS to repave Saw Mill River Road (where the rally is being held) and other state roads. 2) To teach student interns about civic activism—how to get the attention of public officials and how to get government to respond to legitimate concerns.

Please join the Town of Greenburgh and the Greenburgh Summer Interns of 2018 on Thursday, August 2nd for a rally in support of gathering Greenburgh residents to take action against the state for our poorly maintained state roads.
Many of the roads located within the town of Greenburgh are owned by NYS. The last time any NYS road was paved was at least 3 years ago. As a result, many of these roads have dangerous potholes which are a main cause of damages to Greenburgh residents’ vehicles. Some of these problems include punctured tires, damages to the engine, as well as other parts. The worst of these roads is Saw Mill River Road, commonly referred to as Route 9A. Large trucks often drive on this stretch of road, making it difficult for smaller vehicles to avoid both the trucks and the potholes. It is crucial for Greenburgh to take action to protect these roads to ensure road safety and prevent future damages.
The Greenburgh Summer Interns have been working tirelessly to spread the word about this issue. We have created a petition which is demanding action from the state government. This petition has already gathered 167 signatures from New Yorkers. If you would like to sign this petition, please click the following link:
The goal of our rally is to persuade NYS officials to take action and repave Saw Mill River Road and other pothole filled roads that NYS owns located in Greenburgh. Student interns have already met with Assemblyman Tom Abinanti and will be meeting with Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins and representatives of the NYS Department of Transportation hoping to convince them to resolve this pothole problem and repave NYS roads in Greenburgh.
