ICYMI: Inquirer on Feiner's private meeting and a resident's rebuttal to an anti-incorporator's opinion.
For those without subscriptions to the Scarsdale Inquirer, there were several articles on Edgemont and Greenburgh in today’s edition. Here are two of them:
Catherine Ferris wrote about the cancellation of a private incorporation meeting. In it, she notes that Feiner said: “I did not seek the meeting with the residents” but that the residents came to him.
However, Catherine revealed that the invitation itself stated: “Paul Feiner would like to meet with some interested Edgemont residents to present a few ideas that he believes could address the key concerns underlying the movement to incorporate.” That sure sounds like seeking.
The Town Supervisor is now also concerned that Edgemonters may not get invited to parties if they oppose incorporation.

Also, see the opinion piece by Bert de Guzman, who explains how the Town is playing politics, to the detriment of many, by its refusal to engage in meaningful discussions about services. De Guzman also questions why the opposition seems more focused on keeping a Greenburgh pool pass than the Town’s poor governance.
There's more in the Inquirer, including an update on the Shelbourne lawsuit and how our neighbors in Scarsdale are going through a community process to form a collective vision for the Freightway property next to the Scarsdale train station. This is the type of project Edgemont could undertake for Central Avenue if we incorporate.
