We began this week with some sad news, as we'd learned that former Ossining School District Superintendent Dr. Robert Roelle passed away. Dr. Roelle served as Superintendent of the Ossining School District for 15 years, between 1992 and 2007. I had the pleasure of serving in my first elected role on the Ossining School Board under Dr. Roelle's visionary leadership. I learned a lot from him, personally. Also, during his years in Ossining, Dr. Roelle was instrumental in laying the groundwork for so many of the excellent programs in our schools that serve Ossining’s families today, including our world class science research program and the School District’s work to eradicate the achievement gap. He truly left an indelible mark, and through his work has touched thousands of lives. He will certainly be missed by his family, friends and those that worked with him during his tenure in the Ossining community.
We had some much warmer weather this week, which gave us all a chance to get caught up on some outdoor work. A sure sign that summer is almost here, we think?
The boats for the Ossining Sailing Club are now seaworthy! Well. Hudson worthy.
Thinking of taking a boat out on the water this summer? Please remember to boat responsibly and observe all safety regulations. Tomorrow (Saturday, May 11th), Assemblywoman Sandy Galef and a representative from Senator David Carlucci's office will be giving a press conference at the Shattemuc Yacht Club at 12PM, declaring May 18th through May 24th as Safe Boating Week across the state, as well as promoting boating safety classes like the ones taught at Shattemuc. Learn more about how to stay safe this summer here.

The last we spoke, we were preparing for Ossining's 9th Annual Earth Day Celebration at Engel Park, and I'm pleased to share that despite the cool, damp weather, we had a very successful showing and a lot of fun!
Yes, believe it or don't, that sign was made in house just for this event, using driftwood and invasive vines, by our very own Town Parks Department. I can prove it to you!
Is there anything those dudes CAN'T DO???

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.

This week is marked by one thing above all others, and that is the retirement of longtime Town Superintendent of Highways Michael G. O'Connor. Michael G's last day was yesterday, after serving in his current role since 2006, and before that, as a Town Board member since 1990. The Town Board recognized Michael G. on Tuesday night at our Board Meeting and presented him with a proclamation naming April 11th, 2019 as "Michael G. O'Connor Day" in the Town of Ossining.
We also had an awesome cake made for him, featuring one of our very own Highway trucks in "Municipal Orange."
