A snow emergency will be in effect from 6:00 PM Monday, January 26, through 6:00 PM Wednesday, January 28. There is to be NO parking on the hills: this includes Stimpson, Green, Scott, and Seaman Avenues for the duration of the storm. You may park at any of these locations: behind the firehouse, Sacred Heart Church parking lot, Trinity Lutheran Church parking lot, or either of the two Village owned parking lots, one across from the post office, the other next to Mahar’s.

If you live on Main Street we ask that while it is snowing you park on the east side (Stewarts side) of the street. Once it stops snowing you should move to the west side (river side) of the street. If you live on any other street we utilize odd/even parking; on odd days park on the even side of the street, on even days park on the odd side of the street. If you live on a dead end street, please do not park on dead end streets so plows can push the snow to the end of the street.

Castleton Village Stormwater Program

As a Hudson River water front community, the Village of Castleton-on-Hudson understands and values the importance of our water resources. The river provides us with scenic and recreational enjoyment, transportation and commercial opportunities. In return, we are all stewards of the Hudson River. We owe it to ourselves and future generations to preserve and protect this great river.

Recently a team of our local Boy Scouts organized by scout William Noll stenciled all 345 catch basins throughout the Village. Will, who is working on his Eagle Scout merit badge, also completed a Stormwater Educational Board located at the entrance of the Village Hall. We encourage everyone to visit this wonderful addition to our ongoing public outreach on storm water awareness.
