News and Events for Larchmont Residents
From the Mayor

Dear Larchmonters,

I hope this email finds you all well and enjoying Spring's visit. With the beautifully warm and sunny weather of the past few days, we may be tempted to forget that we are still in the midst of a public health emergency. But the reality is that while the virus is spreading at a slower rate, it is still active in our region.

Like all of you, I am looking forward to the time when we can begin the re-opening process. So it remains essential that we follow the social or physical distancing guidelines, wash and sanitize our hands often and WEAR MASKS. Wearing face coverings will be a key element of being able to re-open. Letโ€™s all get on boardโ€ฆplease have a face covering on your person at all times and wear it whenever you are in an enclosed space, like a retail business or bank, or a crowded outdoor space. This includes busy sidewalks and public parks. Remember: Wearing a face covering protects others from you, Love your Neighbor as Yourself and we'll all be better for it!

Stay Strong,
Mayor Lorraine Walsh

Village Notes

Hedges : At this time of year, with plants bursting with new growth, a concern becomes overgrown hedges infringing on the sidewalk. This creates a safety hazard which may force people into the street and not allow for the safe distancing of those walking on the sidewalk. You are required by village code to keep the sidewalks adjoining your property clear of hazards. Please trim your hedges or have your landscapers do so. The code enforcement officer will be out giving warnings. If you see hedges that are overtaking sidewalks, please email the address to [email protected]

Leaf Blowers : Staying on the topic of yard maintenance,   please make sure your landscaping service knows that ALL LEAF BLOWERS (which includes gas powered AND electric) are BANNED in Larchmont until further notice. Violations may be given to both the landscaper and the homeowner, so please help with compliance by assuring the law is followed on your property.
Parking Permits : Parking permits for 2020-21 are now available for purchase Online only . Click HERE for instructions and additional information. We will begin accepting drop-off applications on May 13.
Garbage pick-up : Curbside pickup only continues. Please be sure to abide by the L-M Sanitation Commission rules and place all trash in bins or cans to prevent spreading by animals (no loose trash bags are allowed). Trash and recycling may be placed at the curb either the evening before your scheduled pickup or before 6AM the morning of your pickup.

No Dogs : Dog owners - please feel free to walk your dogs everywhere except FLINT PARK . Because the Village operates a summer camp at Flint Park, the County Department of Health requires a No Dog policy be followed. Please don't jeopardize our license. Thanks!

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 .
