Happy summer to all!

Town of Mamaroneck camps and recreation programs are in full swing and going well, including Monday night "Concerts in the Park" and movie nights, both held at Memorial Park.  However, there were a few blips due to weather.  On Monday evening, July 22nd, there was a downpour of 2.5 inches in less than three hours. Initially, the rain was falling at a rate of 1.5 inches an hour. Thankfully, the flooding subsided quickly and there were no reported injuries. As a result of flood control improvements to the Larchmont reservoir and Duck Pond and up-to- date maintenance of the storm drain system there were fewer flooded areas than previously. Unfortunately, we did have to cancel the concert for that night, however, it has been rescheduled for Monday, August 5th

Sharrows are Coming!

The Town’s "Complete Streets" policy's goal is to enhance pedestrian, bicyclist and motorist safety.  Placing sharrows on Town roads is an important first step to promote safety while sharing the road.

Sharrows are bicycle road markings with two inverted V-shapes.  Their purpose is to remind motorists to share the road by identifying which part of a road should be used by bicyclists. The Town plans to paint sharrows on the following roads: 

  • Myrtle Boulevard from Weaver Street to North Chatsworth Avenue
  • North Chatsworth Avenue from Myrtle Boulevard to Forest Avenue
  • Rockingstone Avenue from Mountain Avenue to Forest Avenue
  • Forest Avenue from Weaver Street to the New Rochelle border

The Senior Center now has a beautiful outdoor deck.  With a generous donation from resident and Planning Board Chair, Ralph Engel, the Town was able to fund the construction of the deck utilizing the Engineering and Highway Department staff to build a beautiful deck at the Senior Center.

Public Hearings

Two important public hearings are scheduled for Wednesday, August 21st regarding proposed legislation for a commuter parking law and reusable bag law. The Town Board will consider proposed legislation to prohibit commuter parking within a half mile radius of the Larchmont train station.  The proposed legislation can be viewed in its entirety on the Town's website at  Residents are welcome to attend the Public Hearing.  However, if you are unable to do so, below are the ways in which you can provide your comments:

  • e-mail: supervisor@townofmamaronecknyorg
  • telephone: (914) 381.7805
  • letter:  Nancy Seligson, Supervisor, Town Center, 740 W. Boston Post Rd, Mamaroneck, NY  10543
The other public hearing scheduled will consider reusable bag legislation in the Town.  Although New York State has approved legislation that will ban single-use, carry out plastic bags, it will not go into effect until mid 2020. The Town was already in the process of proposing legislation when the New York State legislature adopted the law. The Town's proposed bag legislation will be compliant with the future New York State law and will allow the Town to get a jump start on the effort.

We would like to thank former resident, Sveltlana Wasserman, and "
Mothering Mother” for each donating 1,000 reusable bags which will be distributed to residents.

The Town is on Nextdoor!

The Town of Mamaroneck has launched a "Nextdoor" account. We will use "Nextdoor for Public Agencies" as a public service to announce matters of public interest. Please note that Nextdoor should not be used to request emergency services, lodge complaints, or report events such as utility interruptions, fallen trees, etc. All emergencies should be reported by calling 911. Your postings and conversations will remain private. While I hope the information will be of value, you can easily opt out by clicking on the "Local Agencies" link, finding the Town under "directory" and then clicking on "unsubscribe."
