From the Mayor

Dear Larchmonters,

I hope you’re all enjoying the summer, despite being in the Dog Days of August! 

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

Village News

New Website!

Coming soon… a new digital face for the Village! At the July Board meeting we approved a contract with website vendor Revize to redo the Village's website, upgrading it to have a modern, crisp aesthetic, ADA compliance, easy and clear user navigation to get to the information residents and visitors need, and a platform that effectively communicates the Village's goals and initiatives. I’m excited to get this process started and am looking forward to having a much better vehicle to share important information with the community.

Flint Park Rehab!

Also at the July meeting we moved closer to beginning Phase 1 of the Flint Park Renovation Project by approving a professional engineering services contract with Woodard & Curran for the planned improvements for Flint Park. The kick-off meeting was held last Tuesday with Woodard & Curran, Flint Park Conservancy and Village staff. We’re so excited about this public/private partnership in our flagship park! For more information about the plan, please visit

Downtown Comprehensive Plan Grant

Larchmont has applied for a NYS Smart Growth Comprehensive Planning Grant for our business districts. If awarded, the grant would allow us to create a community-driven plan which would provide the basis for future growth, environmental sustainability, and resiliency in our business districts and commercial corridors.

Coming Celebrations

Planning continues for Larchmont Day (September 17) and 1922 Day (September 18). Larchmont Day is our annual celebration of the incorporation of Larchmont as a Village – Yay! And this year is the 100th anniversary of Village Hall, whose cornerstone was laid in 1922. Turns out there were many momentous happenings in that year, so we are planning a special event for the community to learn all about 1922 in Larchmont. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer.

Downtown Transformation Initiative

Have you seen the scaffolding and exterior improvements happening on Larchmont Avenue? This building restoration project is spearheaded by One Larchmont as part of their Downtown Transformation initiative. Can’t wait to see it finished! For more information about this and other initiatives of One Larchmont, visit


Governor Hochul has declared Monkeypox a Disaster Emergency. Numbers in Westchester are low (36 confirmed cases as of 7/29), however they are rising. You can find information about prevention, symptoms and treatment at

Road Improvements

Five road segments were repaved in Larchmont during the last week of July: Bayard, Mayhew, Monroe, Willow, and Beach Avenues. These roads were selected for priority road paving based on evaluations of their road conditions, and we hope residents enjoy the newly-restored roads for the next several years!

New Business!

On July 7th I had the pleasure of cutting the ribbon for one of our newest businesses, Lincoln Glenn Gallery at 126 Larchmont Avenue. The owners, Doug Gold and Eli Sterngass, have curated a wonderful collection – they’re also very nice! So stop by and say hello! It’s great to have art back in that space (former MAG). 

Personnel Changes in Larchmont Fire Department

Larchmont's Fire Department is making some moves with its personnel. Congratulations to Lieutenant Tony Martyn on his retirement after his dedicated service of 33 years to the Village! Lt. Martyn earned numerous medals of merit for outstanding efforts in the performance of his duties through his career, and assisted at Ground Zero, Hurricane Irene, Superstorm Sandy, and Hurricane Ida.

In his place, Firefighter Michael Ettere has been promoted to the position of Lieutenant. Lt. Ettere has demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities and work ethic commensurate with his promotion. Congratulations, Lt. Ettere, on your promotion!

Finally, the retirement of Lt. Martyn and the promotion of Lt. Ettere has left a vacancy in the Fire Department. This will be filled by newly hired Firefighter Kristopher Walters, who graduated from the Westchester County Career Fire Academy on July 15, 2022. Kris started as a volunteer firefighter right here in Larchmont, and has several years of fire service experience. He will be a great addition to our career firefighter team. Congratulations, Kris!

August 23rd Congressional Primary

This August, due to issues with redistricting, we will have a congressional primary election. In the final map, Larchmont ended up staying in CD16, which is currently represented by Rep. Jamaal Bowman. On August 23, there will be a Democratic Party primary election with 4 candidates: Jamaal Bowman, Vedat Gashi, Mark Jaffe, and Catherine Parker. There is no Republican Party primary. Congressional representation is extremely important to Larchmont – registered Democrats should make every effort to vote. If you can’t make August 23, you can vote early at the Mamaroneck Town Center on the following dates and time:

  • Saturday, Aug. 13, 2022 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
  • Sunday, Aug. 14, 2022 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
  • Monday, Aug. 15, 2022 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2022 from noon until 8 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2022 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
  • Thursday, Aug. 18, 2022 from noon until 8 p.m.
  • Friday, Aug. 19, 2022 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
  • Saturday, Aug. 20, 2022 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Committee and Department Updates

Larchmont Environmental Committee

WE WANT YOU! The Larchmont Environmental Committee is focusing on reducing our carbon footprint and addressing green house gas emissions. We are looking for Villagers to help us with:

  • Green Buildings
  • Electric Vehicles
  • Renewable Energy
  • Clean Water
  • Waste Reduction
  • Land Conservation

No experience needed — all we need is your enthusiasm! For more information, please contact Sasha Nahr at [email protected].

Ever wonder what the process of turning food scraps into compost actually looks like? Curious where our bi-weekly curbside trash pick-up ends up? LEC members joined Town and Village of Mamaroneck counterparts and other Westchester environmentalists on two field trips to find out!


The June 6 tour of the new County CompostED Demonstration Facility in Valhalla was organized by the Village of Mamaroneck Committee on the Environment. While our food waste is transported to a compost facility in Kingston, NY run by the Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency, we were able to observe the process in Westchester. Staffed by an extremely knowledgeable and engaging program specialist, this outdoor facility composts up to two tons of locally donated food scraps a week in order to educate municipal officials, residents, students, and interested groups about the environmental benefits of composting, either on individual properties or via community collection sites. Groups can arrange for their own hands-on learning experience by contacting [email protected]!  


The July 8 tour of the WIN Waste Wheelabrator Complex in Peekskill was organized by the Federated Conservationists of Westchester County. The large plant, with 65 employees, opened in 1984, runs 24 hours a day, and processes about 300,000 tons of trash from Westchester municipalities annually. It is mind-boggling to see the mountains of waste being unloaded from a steady stream of huge trailers and routed to boilers, where it is burned at temperatures as high as 2,500 degrees. The energy produced by the incinerator is returned to local communities in the form of electricity and steam; metals are also recovered and recycled. Still, this waste-to-energy site releases pollutants into the air that burden the families of Peekskill, an environmental justice community.

Although Westchester County has one of the highest recycling rates in the nation, our quantity of trash is increasing even faster. It is crucially important for us to separate our waste streams to cut down on trash – a goal shared by CompostED, the team at WIN Waste and all our tour participants – and we must recycle right for that to be effective. See Westchester County’s Recycle Right Brochure and informative Pocket Guide, which explain how to recycle materials properly. We encourage residents to recycle your food scraps at Maxwell Ave and/or compost in your own backyard. At the same time, we must acquire less and repurpose more. Together we CAN make a difference for the health of our communities and our earth!

Touring the CompostED facility!
