The Board of Commissioners (the "Board") of the Hartsdale Public Parking District (the "HPPD") issues the following response to the documents recently released by the Edgemont Incorporation Committee (“EIC”) regarding the impacts that the proposed incorporation of Edgemont would allegedly have on the HPPD and its customers, including residents of any future Village of Edgemont, should such a village be created. Specifically, the Board is responding to the memorandum by an attorney in the Baltimore office of a national law firm; a document summarizing the findings in this memorandum by Pace Law School Professor and Edgemont resident Emily Waldman; and a webpage entitled “Parking Q&A” published by the EIC on their website.
Since the EIC began its recent efforts to incorporate a Village of Edgemont, the Board has been careful not to comment publicly on these efforts or their potential impacts on the HPPD, since the Board feels strongly that it should not make any public statements that could have an impact on or influence the results of any vote regarding such proposed incorporation. However, after consulting with its attorneys, the Board feels it has no choice but to disseminate this brief statement in response to the documents released by the EIC.
The Board and its attorneys do not agree with many of the underlying assumptions and conclusions set forth in the memorandum and summary posted by the EIC, but also do not believe a public "battle of memos" is in anyone's interest. Having said that, the Board will gladly work with the leadership of the Village of Edgemont, if the incorporation efforts are successful, to reach an equitable and fair solution to the provision of parking permits to the residents of the Village. Thank you.
