What is the village doing to help protect the residence of Parkway Road? No services are available to protect this area of the village????? Westchester County Office of Emergency Management doesn't understand why we are not being helped either? The school is not the only area of the village that needs protection as Parkway Road backs up to the Bronx River!

For now, Bronxville Police did not have any new information regarding Parkway Road but as the PD urged residents in other flood prone areas, you may want to at least move your vehicle to a safer location. Village DPW # is 914-337-7338. To my knowledge they do not have extra sand bags that they are giving out but perhaps doing that would also help with possible flooding.
Concerned Residents of Parkway Road October 28, 2012 at 06:04 PM
Why didn't the village administration make a request to the Westchester County Office of Emergency Management 914.864.5450 (whom we just spoke with) and request help and extra sandbags for us??? Seems like a story here Josh...

CRPR: I have left a message with Mayor Marvin regarding this and will report on her response as soon as possible.

The higher range of rain will take out Brooklands again. I am not optimistic but will check this site as long as I can, power permitting, from my motel on Tuckahoe Road. I realize we're only Bronxville P.O., being a block away from the border. I had only moved back to the area in July and I am pretty heartbroken over this. What bad luck. Our board had just approved the flood wall plans and was about to invite bids on the work.
Priscilla Hart October 29, 2012 at 05:20 PM
Why has it taken your board so long to approve flood wall plans? There was a flood at Brooklands in 2007, 2011, and possibly again today. All Brooklands shareholders deserve a habitable place to live. That includes garden apartment shareholders. Habitable means a place where you are not in fear for your life year after year. The garden apartments need to be retired. You and other garden apartment shareholders should be compensated for your loss by the corporation. You need a lawyer! Independent counsel, of course. Not the same ;awyer used by the Board of Director's or the Corporation.
Sherry Fairchok October 29, 2012 at 06:18 PM
Priscilla, I'm not a Board member, so I don't have all the details, and am speaking here as an individual resident, rather than as someone aware of the legal details. But I do know the two renovations were costly, and may have required all available funds, and the second round revealed "carve ins" in the insurance coverage, making it more costly than anticipated. Brooklands engaged consultants & engineers, plans are all drawn up, soil samples taken. I think we were trying to get buy-in from NY State, since the issue is the state-built retaining wall between the Sprain Brook Parkway and our property line. That's where our floodwater comes from. Perhaps because we are a private corporation, as a co-op, they are less helpful than with the Bronxville Public School grant for flood prevention.

The news is that we lost a big oak tree but did not flood this time. For this, I am thankful. Still, the rest of the county and the greater NY area is a mess & I pray for everyone that order is restored, they get their power back and they have liveable homes and safe loved ones.
Josh Semendoff (Editor) October 30, 2012 at 12:11 PM
Hey Sherry, glad to hear the flooding was not that substantial in your area.
Sherry Fairchok October 30, 2012 at 12:15 PM
Josh, thanks. I'll watch for reports of the area and its status. I remember last year, when we'd been devastated but others just had branches down on their property. The lesson to me was that, if you are fortunate & dodged the bullet this time, keep those who were less fortunate in your thoughts.
Josh Semendoff (Editor) October 30, 2012 at 12:30 PM
I agree. If you happen to snap up any pictures of the downed tree or your block, add them here: http://bronxville.patch.com/articles/send-patch-your-storm-photos#photo-11950035
