Bronxville Non-Partisan Committee Invites Village Residents to Apply to Serve on ARC Committee to Review Rules and Procedures

Written by Steve Kraemer, Vice Chairperson, Committee for the Non-Partisan Nomination and Election of School Trustees



Dec. 24, 2014: The Bronxville Committee for the Non-Partisan Nomination and Election of School Trustees (NPC) announces the search for members to its Advisory Review Committee (ARC). The ARC convenes at least every four years to review the rules, procedures, and effectiveness of the NPC.

Community members wishing to serve on the 2015 ARC may submit an indication of interest to the email address given below by January 31, 2015. The 2015 ARC will consist of seven members from Bronxville who have been involved in school- and community-related functions. The last ARC convened in 2012, and past members are listed on the NPC website (www.bronxvillenpc.com).

The objective of the ARC is to keep the processes of NPC effective and up to date. The ARC will seek feedback from the Bronxville community as to areas in which they believe that the NPC procedures and/or rules could be improved. Before submitting a formal report in May of 2015, members of the ARC will meet, both in public and private, from January through April. Past ARC reports can be reviewed on the NPC website.

Indications of interest to serve on the 2015 Advisory Review Committee should be sent to the NPC at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by January 31, 2015. If you have questions related to this announcement, please contact NPC Chair Jennifer Mackesy or Vice Chair Steve Kraemer.

The NPC was formed in 1936 to ensure that the election of trustees of the Bronxville schools would be conducted on a non-partisan basis. NPC expenses are entirely supported by contributions from the community. Contributions may be either mailed to NPC, PO Box 923, Bronxville, NY 10708 or electronically made through the NPC's website.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
