Palmer Streetscape Project- November 19, 2014

Dear Neighbor,

On Wednesday, November 19th, there will be no parking from 6:30AM to 2:00PM on sections of Chatsworth Avenue because of the removal of seven trees.  However, parking will be restored as the work is completed.

The sections of Chatsworth affected are between Palmer and Franklin, along the Chase Bank; between Palmer and North Avenue and a small area of Chatsworth near the Food Basket.

An additional tree, requiring a bucket truck, will be removed on Thursday morning, November 20, in front of Winetasters on Chatsworth Avenue.   There will be no parking in that area while the work is being done.

It is important to note that the tree pits and the light pole areas have been covered by a thin concrete layer and caulked for the Winter.   This technique makes for easy “popping” in the Spring when the new trees will be planted and the light poles installed.  All the electrical conduits have already been placed under the new sidewalks.    These coverings also make the sidewalks more pedestrian –friendly in the meantime.

In the near future all the merchants and property owners will be receiving instructions regarding snow removal from the newly poured sidewalks.   It takes months for concrete to properly cure.   Salt destroys new sidewalks.  Please follow these instructions carefully.

Thank you.

Anne McAndrews

Mayor, Village of Larchmont, NY

LELE Mulch Mowing Info & PSA

Fall leaf season is almost upon us! As a municipal manager, you are well aware of the impacts Fall leaves can have on your city, town or village operation – from leaf removal and disposal to maintaining a clean stormwater system.

In response to these concerns, many municipalities around the county have endorsed and/or adopted a policy of mulch mowing leaves in-place along public right-of-ways and in public parks.

What are some of the benefits of mulch mowing?

• Helps reduce the total volume of leaves from being processed through the county organic waste stream.
• Helps create healthier soils in turf areas and provides a source of free mulch for landscape beds.
• Helps keep leaves out of the storm water system and reduces organic pollutants flowing into the bay or river.
• Helps DPW / Parks crews “get on” to other important business rather than being “tied up” disposing of leaves.
• Helps reduce budgetary costs from overtime, fuel, seasonal equipment repairs, and tipping fees.

Since 2010, an educational program concerning mulch mowing has been developed under the umbrella of “Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em” (LELE). The target audience is not just municipalities (DPW, Parks Departments), but county-wide residents, professional landscapers and property managers.

In support of this initiative, a 30 second PSA (Public Service Announcement) concerning LELE Mulch Mowing has been produced and released to be freely shown on local cable access, at community events or in other venues. The PSA is geared towards the local homeowner and quickly outlines the benefits of mulch mowing, while creating an atmosphere of ‘feel good’ action addressing environmental concerns.

This email is to notify you as to the availability of the PSA and to request that you consider programming it onto your municipal video channel. (In one community, for example, it has been programmed to run every hour on the hour.) The PSA is available in several SD formats including for web streaming (.mp4) and cable or FIOS (.mpeg). Links to these files, as well as a youTube version, can be found on the LELENY.ORG website under the Toolkit tab. The direct link is as follows: http://www.leleny.org/p/lele-toolkit.html#videos

Please feel free to contact us with any questions about this PSA or about the LELE initiative. If you are scheduling the PSA for public access viewing, please drop us a quick note to info@leleny.org so we can keep a running tally.

Palmer Avenue Streetscape Project Update

To our Residents, Merchants and Property Owners,

At long last, after many stops and starts, the Palmer Avenue Streetscape Improvement will begin in earnest right after Labor Day.  Because of this summer’s delay in starting, the entire project will not be completed in the Fall.  Some areas will be held over until the Spring.

The sequence of sidewalks and curbs to be replaced is controlled by the scheduled re-paving of Chatsworth Avenue from North Avenue to Roosevelt Avenue this Fall.  Simply put, those curbs have to go in first.  (By the way, ConEdison is sharing in the cost of the re-paving.)

Here is the sequence:   The colors refer to the attached map.

Red and Blue:  Chatsworth from North to Vanderburgh

Chatsworth from train stairs to Franklin

Yellow:               Palmer from Chatsworth to Depot Way

Pink:                    Palmer from Chatsworth to East

Green:                 If Pink area is completed by first week of November, then Palmer from East Avenue to West Avenue.

Light Blue:         If Pink area is not completed by first week of November, Green area will be deferred to Spring 2015.

In which case, Palmer Avenue from Chatsworth to Franklin will be the last area completed in 2014.

Grey:                     Spring 2015.

However, tree removal work will begin on Palmer Avenue on Thursday, August 28 and on Chatsworth Avenue on Friday, August 29.  Parking in certain areas will be limited those days but restored at intervals as the work is completed.

Thank you to all for your patience and cooperation.  We know you will be delighted with the final outcome when the work is completed.  If you have any questions or concerns while the work is in progress, please e-mail them to engineer@villageoflarchmont.org.
