The vibrancy of Bronxville’s commercial district is integral to the overall health of our community.
Our local government, residents and business organizations recognize the devastating effects of the COVID-19 epidemic on our merchants, and are ready to take action to help them not just survive but to thrive in the “new normal.”
We are excited to announce that the Village of Bronxville, the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce, and a growing network of engaged local residents have created BXV FOR BXV, an ongoing and wide-ranging set of initiatives to invigorate the Bronxville community.
BXV FOR BXV kicks off with a Merchant Loan Program to benefit Bronxville based merchants, which is open for applications from Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020. Information about the Part I Merchant Loan Program is available HERE.
In addition to the Merchant Loan Program, the BXV FOR BXV campaign will offer a grassroots donation program which will endeavor to engage the entire community in supporting re-emerging Downtown Bronxville. We anticipate the program will support merchants with reconfiguring outdoor storefront space, contribute to the beautification of the Downtown area, and provide assistance to Village and Chamber of Commerce events this summer and fall. Details TBD but we are hoping to attract wide and enthusiastic community involvement and participation.
Mayor Mary Marvin has been integral in BXV FOR BXV since inception and says, “I am honored and truly humbled to be a part of such an incredible collaboration of generosity and love for our Village. Those who have stepped up are living the words of William Wordsworth who said, ‘Give what you have. To someone it may be better than you dare to think.’”
President of Bronxville Chamber of Commerce, Leah Caro adds, “Bronxville Village has always had a strong sense of community; community enveloping the residents, the school, the merchants, the municipality. The BXV for BXV project is the epitome of this strength. It should come as no surprise that when the going gets tough, we all get going!”
