Good news: autistic child is SAFE------Tuesday's Town Bd meeting: possible solar farm in E Irvington
Release Date: December 04, 2018

Good news. Police Chief McNerney advised me that the Child was found safe in Putnam County after boarding a train. The county police had been looking for the child using a helicopter.

 

The Town of Greenburgh has recently been approached by a private company that constructs ground-mounted solar panel arrays (aka solar fields). This company (CVE – Changing Visions of Energy) will appear before the Town of Greenburgh Town Board at a work session on Tuesday December 4th to present a project that they would like to construct in the East Irvington portion of the Town on a large (10 acre+) parcel. Such a use is not presently permitted in residential zoning districts. The solar provider intends to present their concept and discuss how these types of projects have been implemented in communities in an unobtrusive (primarily visual) manner. Following the meeting, the Town will request that the potential applicant reach out with the East Irvington community for input. Solar fields are becoming more common all over the northeast, and provide a clean energy source. Balancing tree removals (where applicable) and visual impacts with a use that generates no traffic or other impacts is a matter the Town Board will address if the proposal advances. 

Discussion will take place tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10 AM. Our meetings are streamed live on the town website. I will post a link to the discussion by tomorrow evening.
