  • Town and Village of Mamaroneck employees competed in a softball game with the Town of Mamaroneck winning this year!
  • Larchmont Day was a great success in the Village of Larchmont.
  • Volunteers at the Annual Fall Clean Up collected over 400 pounds of trash and recycling on the Sheldrake River and Leatherstocking Trails near Winged Foot Drive.
We look forward to the annual Food Truck Festival to be held Saturday, October 5th in Memorial Park. There will be 16 food trucks, live music, face painting and opportunities to view fire trucks, police cars and ambulances up close.

Members Needed for Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee

The Town is about to embark on an update of the Comprehensive Plan which was last done in the 1980s. A Comprehensive Plan is a long-term document that will provide input from the residents to create policies to govern decisions in the future. The focus will be on mobility, recreation, housing diversity, community character and sustainability.  As part of the process, we will be conducting extensive community outreach. We are looking for volunteers to serve on the Steering Committee whose role is to guide the consultants with respect to the community outreach and who will review the consultants' work materials throughout the process. It’s anticipated that the Committee will meet one or two times a month for approximately two hours in the evenings and possibly on weekends. The process to develop the Comprehensive Plan should be completed within one year.  If you’re interested in serving on the Steering Committee, please contact me at 381-7805 or supervisor@townofmamaroneckny.org.

Love Your Food

Further to last month’s E-Newsletter, I’m excited to announce that we now have a name for the public outreach and education campaign to help reduce wasted food. Participating are the Town, Village of Larchmont, Village of Mamaroneck and the Mamaroneck School District. It’s called Love Your Food! Funding to support this effort is from a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation grant. The goal is to inspire all of us to reduce the amount of wasted food we generate by eating what we have; sharing what we can; and composting whatever food scraps are left. The Love Your Food logo is now ready for spreading the news.

Reusable Bags in Tree


Reusable Bag Law Goes Into Effect 12/1/2019

The Town Board passed the "Mamaroneck Bag Waste Reduction Law" on September 18, 2019. The intent of the law is to encourage people to use reusable bags. This initiative will benefit the health, safety and welfare of residents and our environment. The law includes a fee of 5 cents for a paper bag to encourage customers to use their own reusable bags. However, the law doesn’t require those people receiving federal assistance to pay the 5 cent fee for paper bags. The law exempts several non-carryout bags, including those that hold produce, newspapers, bulk food items and bags sold in bulk, such as trash bags. It also exempts plastic bags provided by restaurants for carry-out food. The Town is looking forward to distributing several thousand reusable bags decorated with award winning student designs to residents. This Town law incorporates the new state law that is scheduled to go into effect March 2020.
