The Edgemont Community Council (ECC) was founded as the Greenville Community Council in 1947 to determine community opinion on civic matters, coordinate community action thereon, and to plan and promote the general welfare of the Edgemont community.
The Greenville Community Council was founded in 1947 to determine community opinion on civic matters, coordinate community action thereon, and to plan and promote the general welfare of the Edgemont community. That is still the purpose of the Edgemont Community Council today. The Edgemont community is the area embraced by Union Free School District #6, commonly known as the Edgemont School District. Edgemont is in the Town of Greenburgh, Westchester County, State of New York.
Edgemont is a community whose legal identity is as a school district (Union Free School District #6 at Greenburgh) and a fire district (the Greenville Fire District incorporated in 1913) with nearly co-terminus boundaries. Edgemont lies entirely within the unincorporated portion of the Town of Greenburgh, and as such, has no independent municipal government. Because the Town’s council members are elected “at large,” there is no member of the Town Board directly responsible for representing Edgemont’s interests at the municipal level. The Community Council was incorporated in 1947 to serve as the focal point for the community’s active, neighborhood-oriented civic associations, giving the residents both a community-wide forum for discussions and a non-partisan representative voice at Town Hall.
The ECC is the sponsor of the non-partisan School Board Nominating Committee (SBNC), providing the impartial chairperson and underwriting the associated costs.
ECC representatives regularly attend Town, Planning and Zoning Board meetings and take positions on traffic, planning, zoning and budget matters at the Town level.
The ECC annually presents the “Silver Box Award” to an Edgemonter in recognition of her/his commitment and exemplary service to the community.
