Happy Friday! Lots to share this week. First, you may have noticed that the Town website has gotten a bit of a refresh! We have been working on this redesign for quite some time now, and we were so excited to officially have launched the newly designed website this weekend. Huge shout out to Brian Sheridan of Hothouse Designs for the beautiful layout, and Dean Pacchiana, our webmaster extraordinaire, for doing all of the technical work behind the scenes. We are also rolling out a new look for the Update e-mail and agenda blasts to coordinate with the look of the new website. The new e-mails and website are mobile friendly and more ADA accessible than the previous versions, two important goals for us with the re-design. Thanks for staying connected with us!



Another way we’re staying connected is through meetings. I was pleased to be able to host a coffee and conversation with State Senator Pete Harckham last Sunday at the Ossining Public Library. Thank you to everyone who came out to join us! 


Other meetings you should be sure to join us for:

  • At next week’s Town Board meeting, we’ll be re-opening our public hearing on e-bikes. Please join us and share your input; click here for the meeting agenda, including the Zoom link. 
  • Join us on Thursday, November 3rd at 6 p.m. at the Ossining Community Center (95 Broadway) for the Ossining Shoreline Revitalization Community Meeting to share feedback on the draft shoreline improvements. We look forward to hearing your input on how we can improve the waterfront to reflect your values and priorities. An interpreter and translated materials will be available for Spanish speakers.

Speaking of environmental protection, Westchester County Government recently released an excellent video reminding everyone to flip over their ballots when they go to vote next month. The flip side of the ballot contains a question about whether or not to pass New York’s Clean Water, Clean Air and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act. If “Yes” wins, the $4.2B Bond Act will fund restoration and flood risk reduction, climate change mitigation, open space land conservation, recreation and water quality improvement, and resilient infrastructure. Click here to watch the video, and remember to flip your ballot!

In other sustainability news, Assemblywoman Sandy Galef recently hosted a virtual town hall meeting on home energy alternatives called Heat Pumps 101. It was an informative session with experts who detailed how New York’s grid is changing to address climate change, and how to update our homes to improve energy efficiency, increase savings, and move away from fossil fuels. If you missed the conversation, click here to view it on YouTube.

Be sure to take advantage of a couple of upcoming opportunities for mobile government services if you need them:

This Saturday, October 15, the Westchester County Mobile Shredder will be at the Joseph G. Caputo Community Center in Ossining from 10am to 1pm.  Residents can bring up to four file sized boxes of confidential papers per household, remember to remove all large binder clips and covers. Papers from businesses are not allowed, and remember to just include truly personal documents – junk mail does not count, unfortunately! 

The Westchester County Mobile Shredder will return to Briarcliff on Saturday, October 22, 2022 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  The shredder will be stationed at the Briarcliff Department of Public Works, 10 Buckhout Road. For more information, click here.  To ensure the health and safety of all residents and staff, you can read about the safety protocols here.

The Westchester County Clerk’s office will be bringing its community outreach mobile office to the Joseph G. Caputo Community Center on Wednesday, October 26 from 10 AM to 1 PM. Apply for a passport, access notary services, and more! Make your plans now to access this service so that you’re ready with the necessary paperwork on the 26th. We will send a separate e-blast with more details this weekend so you can prepare.

That’s all for now! For ideas for what to do this weekend and beyond, keep scrolling! Extra leaf peeper trains are available starting tomorrow for those looking to get their fall foliage fix; click here for more details!

We will see you soon - till then, be safe and healthy!
