News and Events for Larchmont Residents
From the Mayor

Dear Fellow Larchmonters,

We find ourselves in uncharted waters, dealing with a coronavirus global pandemic which has profoundly affected us all - in the loss of opportunities, jobs and livelihoods, and social interactions – but for some of our residents, and thousands of fellow New Yorkers, this virus has brought the ultimate loss. It is for this reason that I implore you to follow the guidance of Governor Cuomo and the CDC – Stay Home as much as possible. If you do have to go out, please cover your mouth and nose and stay AT LEAST 6 feet away from others. I know that it’s difficult, but please do not hold playdates or allow your tweens and teens to socialize with their friends in person. We are seeing some positive benefits of the Stay Home order and what seems like a slowing of the spread, but let’s avoid a backslide – now’s the time to double-down and beat this virus.

Throughout the past weeks, we have been working hard to keep essential Village services up and running. I want to express my gratitude to the Village staff for their dedication to serving our residents and flexibility in working with us during this difficult time. And to our first-responders, who potentially put themselves in harm’s way on every call, an extra thank you!

It has also been inspiring to see so many people taking the time to help others. The generous spirit of our community is revealed by people offering to go shopping for our more vulnerable community members, individuals making masks for our health care providers on the front lines, and residents continuing to shop local to help our businesses survive this difficult time. To see what our local businesses are offering and ways to shop, please click HERE . Just another opportunity to say how lucky we are to live in Larchmont!
The Board of Trustees have been working since January on the Village’s annual budget. By the time we presented the tentative budget at our March 18 th meeting, we knew that the fiscal landscape would be significantly altered by the coronavirus crisis and that we would need to reconsider revenue, expenses and capital spending before a final budget could be adopted. We held a budget work session on April 6th and have a Board meeting scheduled for April 20 th , at which we intend to present the tentative budget 2.0. We are required to adopt a final budget for the Village’s fiscal year, which begins June 1, no later than May 1 st . Board work sessions and meetings are noticed on the Village website calendar. They are being held as Zoom meetings and all information on how to listen in and/or participate are posted on the calendar entries.

Finally, I want to thank my fellow Board members. It is in times of trouble that people often show their true selves – we are lucky to have 4 individuals who are giving their all in service to our Village.

On behalf of myself and the Larchmont Board of Trustees, I wish you a Happy Passover and a Joyous Easter.

Let us be inspired by the messages of Passover and Easter - we too will overcome adversity and the world will be a better place for it. And, let us hope Zoom doesn’t crash so we may have virtual celebrations with our family and friends.
Together, we will get through this.

Stay Strong, Stay Home,
Mayor Lorraine Walsh

Committee and Department Updates
From The Larchmont Fire Department
With daylight savings time comes the time of year when batteries should be changed in both smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms. In addition, while you have the detector down, please ensure the manufactured date of the detector is no more than 10 years old. This date is to ensure the inner workings of the device are still within recommended guidelines. Devices past ten years old may still have a working audible alarm but may not detect smoke or carbon monoxide as it was intended. As always if you have any questions please feel free to contact the fire department at 914-834-0016 or your preferred alarm monitoring company. 

Thank you to the Town of Mamaroneck Recreation Department, the Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department, the Village of Larchmont Fire Department and Village of Larchmont Police Department for helping spread joy and escorting the Easter Bunny around the Village today!
Join Us in Honoring Our Health Care Providers
Health care providers have been on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19, demonstrating extraordinary dedication, stamina, and bravery. Let’s all show our appreciation every evening at 7:00pm by standing outside our homes — or opening our windows — and clapping loudly for our health care heroes. You can also use a whistle, blow a horn, bang a pan, or whatever works for you. Let’s make some noise Larchmont!”

Census 2020
It is extremely important that everyone participate in the 2020 Census. Not having an accurate count of our residents can negatively impact our community .

The Census count determines our share of Federal and State funding for healthcare, education, roads and transportation & parks. The Census count determines our share of State and Local Sales Tax. Westchester County estimates that 𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗵 𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁 is a 𝗹𝗼𝘀𝘀 𝗼𝗳 $𝟮,𝟱𝟬𝟬 in funding 𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗵 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿. Especially now with the financial uncertainty we need every dollar.

We are only at a 50% response rate, so please respond to the Census today! To respond to the Census, please click HERE .
Larchmont Historical Society
Did You Know? Ever wonder who else lived in your home? Or what’s the significance of that beautiful fountain in Fountain Square? Or even where did the name “Larchmont” come from? The Larchmont Historical Society has all those answers and more! The LHS is a completely independent organization providing historic archives, grade school presentations, engaging speakers and historic talks, not to mention the much-loved Annual House Tour to our community. Unfortunately, membership is at an all-time low and after nearly 40 years the LHS is in danger of shutting down.
