Capital Projects 2018

The Town Board has approved the capital projects and funding schedule as part of the 2018 budget. One of the capital projects begun in 2017 is the dredging of Gardens Lake, also known as the Duck Pond. We believe Gardens Lake is a man-made lake and was created in the early 1900’s. The drainage area of the lake reaches all the way into the Town of North Castle.  Silt, over time, develops in the lake which results in the need to periodically dredge the lake. The Larchmont Gardens Civic Association, a group comprised of local homeowners, has raised funds to pay for the installation of aerators in the lake this spring to reduce the buildup of algae resulting from low oxygen levels in the water.

Other projects scheduled for this year include repairs to the Weaver Street Fire House and sanitary sewer, Town Center renovations, repair of “Red” Bridge on Pryor Manor Road and new Town signage. You will see contractors working on these various projects throughout the year.  The apparatus floor of the Fire House must be replaced in order to accommodate the heavier and larger fire trucks in use today.  I’ve reported repeatedly about the ongoing sanitary sewer system evaluation and repairs required in the Town. The cost of repairs in 2018/2019 will be $4.5 million, partially offset by a NYS Infrastructure grant.

Town Center Building Renovations and New Town Signage

The Town Center building, which is home to the Town offices, was originally built in 1888 and served as the Town's high school.  The Town acquired the building from the School District in 1982 and the building underwent major renovations during the next few years.  Due to the age of the building there are capital projects planned in 2018 that include; replacing the flat roofs, lobby improvements, renovating the bathrooms, updating the kitchen area used by the staff and, most importantly, replacing the entrance doors on the first floor so that they are ADA compliant.

There will be new outdoor signage marking the entrances to the Town, the Hommocks Ice Rink and the Town Center.  The signs at the Town Center have not been updated in over 30 years!

New Senior Citizen Bus

We are pleased to announce that the Town of Mamaroneck has acquired a new Senior Citizen Bus. Most of the funding for the bus came from a $49,000 grant from the New York State Department of Transportation.  Our Seniors will now be transported around town in style!

"Green" Resident of the Month

Meredith Pollack was one of the first residents to participate in the Food Waste Recycling program. Meredith and her son, Will, volunteered and helped organize the kits in the beginning. Meredith explains, "I want my family to be as eco-friendly as possible and this is about as easy as it gets.  Since we started, we have noticeably less garbage and are more conscious about trying not to waste food, because we can see exactly what is going in the compost bin."  The original 400 food waste recycling kits are practically sold out.  Please join your friends and neighbors and consider recycling your food waste. If you are interested in participating, please call the Town Office at 381-7805 or simply email for details.
