The big day is almost here-- Ossining's 9th Annual Earth Day is coming your way tomorrow (Saturday, April 27th) and we are ready for you!
Our Town Parks staff has been spending a great deal of time at Engel Park this week to make sure we will be looking our best for the several thousand (!) eco-invested visitors we expect from all around the tri-state area. We are looking forward to a beautiful day of music, food, and friendship along the Hudson River, I do hope to see you there! Make sure to stop by the Town/Village booth next to our electric car charging station, where we will have a gallery demonstrating the "green" initiatives we have taken the past few years to lessen Ossining's dependence on fossil fuels and conserve our natural resources. Learn more about the vendors, the schedule, the best places to park, and more, here.

The weekend is almost upon us, and look at that sun shine! We had some really great weather this week, reminding us that Spring, in fact, has arrived!
Spring is a super busy time for our Building Inspector John Hamilton, who spends a lot of his day out in the field working on projects. As you probably know, we have lots going on in the Unincorporated area of Town, one of the most obvious being the Artis Memory Care Facility on North State Road. This project, which was before the Planning Board for quite some time, has been moving quickly on their construction.
Once complete, this building will be a memory care facility, housing seniors who suffer from Alzheimer's disease or other forms of memory loss. We feel fortunate to have such an important assisted living facility decide to make its home here in Ossining-- not only does this development add to the Town's overall assessment, it does so without adding school-aged children to our district, which helps to lower the tax burden for all residents.When I last spoke to the contractor, they were anticipating a 2020 opening.
