BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- A new long-term management agreement for Scout Field in Bronxville was announced by County Executive Rob Astorino that will guarantee continued recreational programming for local residents including the construction of a new youth soccer field.

The agreement calls for the Town of Eastchester to operate Scout Field as a licensee of the county, responsible for day-to-day maintenance of the park.

Under a separate agreement between the town and the village, Bronxville will continue recreational sports programing there including youth soccer leagues and soccer, football, baseball and cross country running for the Bronxville School District.

“Scout Field has been part of family life in Bronxville for decades and, under this agreement, the county ensures that it will continue to be the center of youth recreation in the village for many years to come,” Astorino said in a statement. “This is another example of how working together with our local governments through shared costs and services can benefit our taxpayers.”

The county has agreed to a $600,000 capital investment that will pay for a new grass soccer field and an improved irrigation system. Additional capital construction costs for a reconfigured entrance, parking area, and road resurfacing will be borne by the town of Eastchester.

The agreement must be approved by the Board of Legislators. Gordon Burrows, who represents Bronxville, said he expected the agreement to be approved without objection.

That's all well and good. What about the parts of Scout's Field that are in the Yonkers /Mt. Vernon sections. The access road from Midland Avenue is a disgrace leading to Boy Scout Cabin. The field as well as the trails and wooded sections are in terrible condition. Trees abutting the Alden Place Coop complex are ready to come crashing down. This is a threat to the poles and electrical lines as well as the 9-10 Alden Place Rental Complex owned by Houlihan and O'Malley.
