In our last article, the Board had discussed the presence of the ASC/NYC organization occupying the Pelham Grand property, at 1870 Pelham Parkway South. Every facility of this nature should have a Community Advisory Committee made up of residents of the host community for that facility. In other words, the sponsoring organization ASCNYC has the basic responsibility for the establishment of such a committee, consisting of Pelham Bay residents. Bronx Community Board #10 believes that the establishment of this committee is the best way for the neighborhood to interact with the building’s management to ensure that the facility, not only meets the needs of its residents, but that it is also a good neighbor. The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) for the Pelham Grand is interested in having new members join the CAC. Anyone interested in joining can contact ASC/NYC at 212-645-0815, Ext. 752.

As many of you now know, as of November 7, 2014, the speed limit on all City streets will be 25 MPH, unless otherwise noted. The speed limits on the highways will remain as they currently are. The speed limit on all streets will be 25 MPH, unless otherwise posted. Some streets were designed to have traffic move faster, these streets will have different speed limit signs installed. Others, especially near schools may have slower speed limit signs posted. The speed limit signs on the highways will not change. Our Board urges everyone to respect these new regulations. They were put into place to save lives and to make our streets safer. Additional information can be obtained by contacting zero.

One of the many great things about Bronx Community Board #10, are the many civic and community organizations that are within its boundaries. One such organization is the Throggs Neck Volunteer Ambulance Corps (TNVAC). This all volunteer, neighborhood resident staffed organization, is always there to serve you and your family in your time of need with life saving ambulance services. Additional information on this wonderful community resource can be obtained by contacting TNVAC at 718-430-9500.

Community Boards are composed of committed citizens, who give of their time and resources for the betterment of the neighborhoods that comprise the Board. These people are your neighbors and serve as volunteers. Their only motivation is to serve their communities. Bronx Community Board #10 recently lost one of its members, Bill Heaney. He will be remembered for his service to Bronx Community Board #10, the Throggs Neck Volunteer Ambulance Corps and many other community groups. We will always remember him in our thoughts.
