Delima Park in Fall (jpg)

Leaves: Don't Blow It 

It's almost that time of year again, Scarsdalians. Local fall colors will soon be erupting, and literally tons of leaves will be deposited on Scarsdale lawns. Residents are urged to consider mulch mowing in lieu of blowing or raking leaves for Village pick-up. It's a choice that can reduce leaf program costs while also helping the environment. If you insist on shipping your leaves away, the 2019 Leaf Program runs from October 15 through December 6; placing leaves for pick-up before 10/15 is prohibited. Also, be sure to adhere to the Do's and Don'ts.

Coolaboration: Wynmor Park v. 2.0

Wynmor Park has a fresh look and new features! The improved facility is the product of a coolaborative effort between the Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department and the East Heathcote Neighborhood Association. Not only does the park now offer new playground equipment and benches, but there's also a new tennis court surface, improved landscaping, and enhanced drainage to make sure the park is suitable for use following periods of rain. Indeed, cool things can arise from working together. Drop-by to see and use Wynmor Park v. 2.0!

LED: Going Green, Saving Green

Thanks to the dedication of the Ad-Hoc Committee on LED Lights and their sustained commitment in working with our Public Works staff to effect positive change, Scarsdale's LED conversion of streetlights on residential roads is now complete! The project will result in recurring annual savings in excess of $100,000The only remaining streetlights to be converted are fixtures in the downtown area and Town & Country fixtures at the Five Corners and Village Hall parking lot. A pilot for these fixtures is planned for Fall 2019. Be green, save green!

Sharing Scarsdale Expertise

Kudos to Scarsdale Career Firefighter Timothy Duffy on selection to present his course, Weighing-in on Building Construction, at this year’s Firehouse Expo, which is the fire service industry’s premier education event. The course instructs firefighters on how varying building construction types and materials react to heat and fire, and thus shape firefighting strategies. Tim, a six-year veteran of the Scarsdale Fire Department, also teaches for both the NYS Office of Fire Prevention & Control and the NYS Association of Fire Chiefs.

Village Board Meeting Update

The October 07 Village Board agenda included approval of additional funding for roadway resurfacing, which became available as a result of sound fiscal management of the FY 18/19 budget (p. 39) and a prudent Village policy requiring ConEd to reimburse the Village for roadway restoration costs (p. 41). A resolution directing staff to undertake legislative advocacy in support of 25 mph legislation was also passed (p. 45); watch for more updates! The next Village Board meeting is on October 22. Check the calendar for more meeting dates & topics.
