Parking: The Goldilocks Paradox

Too much, too little; Too costly, too cheap; Too aggressive, too lenient. It's hard to get parking just right, Goldilocks. However, the Village is interested in continuous improvement. To that end, the Village will be undertaking a pilot project this fall to test some of the latest parking meter technologies and app-based parking services that will make parking easier and more user-friendly, while at the same time continuing to provide adequate customer parking opportunities. Keep tuned for more info -- we'll need your help to get parking just right!

Yes, a Farmers Market is returning to Scarsdale this fall in Boniface Circle on a pilot basis. Farmers. Food. Fun. 10583. Right. Here. The USDA has cited at least 10 Reasons to Shop at a Farmers Market, and the Village agrees wholeheartedly: Buy and eat local! Watch for more news and details over the next few weeks.
