From the Mayor

Dear Larchmonters,

It's bittersweet to be writing my last newsletter to you as your Mayor. As I bid farewell to my role in Village Government, I look back at all the Village's accomplishments from the past few years, and look forward to what the future holds for our community.

November also means Election Day! Remember that Election Day is Tuesday, November 8th, but early voting is happening right now! See below for more details. 

Check out the latest on what's happening in Larchmont below!

Village News

Update on the Historic Preservation Law

On Monday, October 24, the Larchmont Village Board of Trustees held a Special Meeting, in which they adopted a resolution prioritizing the Village’s Land Use Process. The resolution resolved three actions:

   1. The Village prioritized the completion of draft changes to the existing land use permitting process to make it more streamlined and less onerous for residents;

2. The procedure to adopt the proposed Historic Preservation Law is suspended; and


3. The Public Hearing for the proposed law, set for on Monday, November 21, 2022, is officially cancelled. 


Residents are encouraged to watch the meeting video to learn more about the process undertaken. As previously publicized, when the Village Board of Trustees re-introduces the Historic Preservation Law, there will be a large number of public engagement opportunities.

Election Day 2022 and Environmental Bond Act

Tuesday, November 8, is Election Day. Remember to go out and vote!

The Early Voting period is active right now, and runs through Sunday, November 06. 

In addition, New York State will have a bond referendum on the back of everyone's voting ballot, where you can vote "Yes" or "No" to the "Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act of 2022". This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for New York State to borrow funds that will immediately fund projects to improve quality of life, modernize infrastructure, and safeguard drinking water. The Larchmont Village Board of Trustees recently adopted a resolution in support of the Bond Act and encourages residents to vote "Yes" this election.

Looking forward to the holiday season!
