This association is dedicated to the maintenance and preservation of the Waterbury LaSalle Community also known as Schuylervi­lle.  It is made up of people from all walks of life, be they homeowners, tenants, or business people. People who love this area, and seek to preserve every phase of life in their community.

Since our beginning in September of 1978, we have worked to unify this area by involvement in every aspect of community life, social, political, and educational.

With help from our members, political leaders, the police department at the 45th Precinct, and Community Board 10, we have helped establish improvements that are of great benefit to the people of this community.

There are always constant pressures on a stable community such as ours. We are always vigilant in looking for changes that disrupt the quality of life that we enjoy. To do this, we seek participation from our members because in numbers there is strength.

Each month we have a guest to speak on an interesting topic.

Our guest may be a city commissioner, or an elected official, or one of your neighbors with important information that you need to hear.

We serve coffee and we can offer advice, talk about complaints with city or state services, sanitation, post office, graffiti, zoning, schools, quality of life. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

New Members are always welcome. Our web site WWW.waterburylasalle.com        our email waterburylasalle@yahoo.com

Overdevelopment

The neighborhoods of Schuylerville, Pelham Bay, Country Club, Ferry Point, Throggs Neck and City Island are far too overdeveloped. We are saturated with housing. We don’t need any more and we don’t want any more! It is irresponsible to allow anyone to continue to build in these areas of the Bronx when there is no need and no parking!  Overdevelopment has caused a need for one thing parking in our commercial districts and our residential areas.

The location at  3030 Middletown Road is the perfect spot for a parking lot. It is centrally located between commercial and residential properties and would greatly improve the commercial trade for all the shopkeepers on Middletown Road. This location would also be good as an annex to P.S. 71, as you know they have run out of space and have trailers in the school yard. This would also be a good location for a park. There are many

good uses for this location but housing is not one of them.

We need to stop this proposed construction and take a serious look at anyone who proposes to build in this part of the Bronx.  We need to improve our neighborhood with services that complement the area and make it easy for homeowners and shopkeepers to exist by improving our quality of life.

We need to reverse the development in our neighborhood. We are choking out the small town feeling that we once had we are top-heavy with housing and there is no balance between housing, schools, infrastructure, and needed services. We are headed for disaster!
