Westchester County Executive George Latimer appeared at the Wednesday, February 7th Mamaroneck Town Board meeting to introduce his Executive Order Number 2 of 2018, “Good Neighbor Policy,” enabling Westchester municipalities and their residents “to have input into the decision-making process regarding the use of County land located within their borders.
“The local governing body would then have 60 days after such presentation and before the action would be implemented: a) to hold a local public forum to gather input regarding said proposed action from local residents; and b) to submit a memorandum of support, neutrality or opposition to the action before the County proceeds…”
In other Town Business, the Board approved a consistent School Zone speed limit of 25 miles-per-hour outside of Murray Avenue School and adopted the 2018 Fee Schedule including removing the $35 fee paid to Police to escort businesses to banks.
At the Work Session, Town Supervisor Nancy Seligson brought up the subject of “Preserve Larchmont’s” petition to Albany, requesting a moratorium on development; proposed Hommocks Ice Rink Girls’ Locker Rooms and Car Port, a portable, solar-powered electric vehicle recharging station (EV ARC). During the Regularly Scheduled Meeting, Seligson discussed leasing two electric vehicles.
Administrator Stephen V. Altieri mentioned doing a first draft of the Town Comprehensive Plan, drawing on plans from other municipalities covering land use, sustainability and traffic, especially the Weaver Street intersections impacted by schools, plus tying hazard mitigation and sustainability plans together.
Other important topics centered around construction of Cambium Condominiums Madison Avenue/New Jefferson Street and I-95 Ramps intersection using traffic signal controls rather than a more expensive round-a-bout, studied by Barton and Logiudice and setting a Public Hearing for proposed reduction of Planning Board from 7 to 5 members.
