WCBS 880′s Sean Adams On The Story
It’s where Alice Goldberg lives and heads the homeowner’s assocation.
“We’re not fighting the bridge. We accept the bridge. We accept that it is going to be there. We accept the benefits for the rest of the region. We just don’t want to get lost in the process and suffer both during and after the construction,” she told WCBS 880′s Sean Adams.
Some residents want a buyout. Others noise barriers and soundproof windows and doors during the five-year construction phase. There are also concerns about dust and deisel exhaust.
They’ll make their wishes known at a meeting with government officials this week.
Greenburgh town supervisor Paul Feiner is optimistic.
“They haven’t told us if a buyout is going to be an option, but they are meeting with us and I feel that that’s a really good sign,” Feiner said Monday.
