ARDSLEY, N.Y. - Village of Ardsley Manager George Calvi has announced the signing of a deal with several property owners to acquire small portions of land along Route 9A to facilitate the widening of the roadway.
"The papers were signed (last week) between the Village of Ardsley and three properties on the east side of Route 9A for the amicable taking of a narrow sliver of land to facilitate the widening of the road between Ashford Avenue and Heatherdell Road," Calivi said in a report to residents.
The properties in question are the former Westchester Garage owned by the Butta family, the property holding Star Bagels/Evergreen Cleaners owned by the Love family, and the CVS shopping center owned by ISJ Management of Manhattan.
Route 9A is the main roadway running north and south through the Ardsley Square business district where traffic is often backed. The widening of the road could help keep traffic moving where motorists enter and exit businesses.
According to officials, the monies being paid to the respective property owners is from a fund made available by the Ridge Hill (Yonkers shopping center) settlement.
No date is scheduled yet for the actual widening to take place.
