BRONXVILLE, NY — July 9, 2019 — The Trustees and I continue to finalize our 2019 Comprehensive Plan.  Though sounding innocuous like a document headed for a bookcase shelf, it is actually a very important instrument for Village governance.  This will be the sixth community plan for Bronxville: the Village’s first overall plan was adopted in 1971, and subsequently reviewed …
