Another glorious week in Ossining is another opportunity to highlight so many good programs and projects here in our Town.
Yesterday, along with many of you, I attended the Ribbon Cutting at Henry Gourdine Park at the Harbor Square Residences at the Ossining Waterfront, and we were fortunate enough to avoid the forecasted rain. Henry was a real community treasure and we hope that the Village Park that now bears his name can also fill a similar role in connecting our community to the magnificent Hudson. Town Councilwomen Kim Jeffrey and Karen D'Attore and I were joined by Assemblywoman Sandy Galef, County Legislator Catherine Borgia, County Executive Rob Astorino, and of course, Village of Ossining Mayor Victoria Gearity and Village Trustee Quantel Bazemore, for this long-anticipated occasion. I am so glad to welcome this beautiful space into our inventory of park space in Ossining. A reception was held on the top story of Harbor Square after the ribbon cutting, and if you have yet to take a tour, I can't encourage you enough to do so. I will let this view speak for itself.
Both the Town and Village are hard at work to improve our beautiful waterfront. This week, my office continued work on a grant to install an ADA-compliant kayak launch at Louis Engel Park to add to the recreational activities we offer our residents. We hope, little by little, to add value to this already well-used space in our community.
On June 30th (next Thursday), we will be hosting our annual Fireworks Celebration at the waterfront, and preparations for the day are well underway. This event requires coordination across many agencies, and the work that happens behind the scenes is more than I ever expected! Preparations by our Recreation Superintendent, Parks and Highway/DPW in both the Town and Village, along with our first responders in the Ossining Police Department, Ossining Fire and OVAC, are well coordinated and we look forward to an exciting (and safe) night for everyone. Please remember that the bridges to the waterfront will be closed several hours before the show begins, so plan accordingly!
KJ Denhert and her band will get us started at 7PM, and the fireworks will start at 9:15PM. If you're still up for more excitement after the fireworks, Powderfinger will keep us grooving into the late hours once the fireworks end.
And the best news of all? (Fingers crossed) The forecast looks clear and warm, perfect weather to get together and spend a night at the waterfront. Check out the beautiful poster designed by Ossining’s own Brian Sheridan and come on down!

We have gotten word that on Wednesday, June 22nd, the New Castle DPW will be closing Spring Valley Road at the Town of Ossining line between the hours of 8AM and 5PM. The road and drainage system were badly damaged in Hurricane Sandy, and the drainage work scheduled for Wednesday will be the first step in the permanent restoration of the road.
Need a detour from Cedar Lane? Get on 9A going North and take the Old Albany Post Road exit. Take a right onto Old Albany Post Road and continue on Quaker Bridge Road to Glendale. Take a right onto Glendale to meet up with Spring Valley Road and make a right to reach Hawkes Avenue.
