The Towns of Ossining and New Castle and the Village of Ossining were recently awarded a grant from the Hudson River Valley Greenway to develop a plan for an Open Space/Bike Lane/Commerce Connectivity Corridor, which would create enhanced pedestrian and bike access between commercial zones and open space in the Ossining and New Castle area. This plan aims to connect the Ossining Train Station to the business districts in downtown Ossining and along North State Road, reaching the Millwood Hamlet, as well as to the many beloved open spaces in the region.

bikepath1This trail network will be an “Emerald Necklace” for the region, bolstering economic development and the tourism industry, while reducing the community’s environmental impact through the conservation of open space and decreased dependence on cars for transportation.  These improvements for pedestrian and bike access and safety are expected to be especially beneficial to the many residents in our community that do not have access to a car for transportation to and from work, school, and play. 

An inter-municipal task force has been established and has begun the process of identifying potential routes to bring the plan to fruition.  The task force is comprised of individuals that represent various stakeholder groups and municipal leaders involved in this project – the Towns of Ossining, New Castle, and Yorktown; the Villages of Ossining and Briarcliff Manor; Westchester County Department of Planning; Westchester County Department of Transportation; New York State Department of Transportation; New York State Assemblywoman Sandy Galef’s Office; Westchester Cycle Club; Yorktown Trail Town; and the Town of Ossining Environmental Advisory Committee.

2020 Reappraisal Project

THE APPRAISAL PROCESS

In 2019, the Town Board voted to conduct a reappraisal update of all real property located in the Town of Ossining for 2020. This project will provide the highest level of assessment accuracy.

Tyler Technologies, the firm that was awarded this project, is currently the oldest and largest provider of this service. Tyler Technologies has performed reassessment projects in New York State and nationally, since 1938, and also performed one for Ossining.

The most critical aspect of this project is the collection of accurate data. In order to correct discrepancies/errors or verify information about your property in the next few weeks, a data collector from Tyler will be visiting your property to perform a physical inspection. Your cooperation is appreciated and essential to establishing an accurate assessment.
