Memorial Day Parade

This year's Memorial Day Parade will step off on Monday, May 25 at 10:00 a.m. The parade will begin at the corner of Boltwood and Seaman Avenues and will conclude with ceremonies at the Mountain View Cemetery. The parade will include five divisions with participants from our churches, schools, community volunteer organizations, politicians and lots more. The VFW color guard will lead the parade.

As we take time to honor those who served our country, we would like to show our appreciation to any veteran or Gold Star Mother in our community by asking them to join us in the special seating area that has been reserved for them during the ceremony. Our guest speaker will be Lieutenant Commander Michael Yager, USN Retired.

Grand Marshall this year is Cornelius Boel. Marianne Carner will be given the Community Appreciation Award this year in recognition of her contribution to the community.

Please join us as we honor those who have served their country so valiantly and well.

County Hazard Mitigation Plan

Natural hazards have the potential to cause property damage, loss of life, economic hardship, and threats to public health and safety. The Village of Castleton is now part of the Rensselaer County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Hazard mitigation plans are developed before a disaster strikes. The plans identify community policies, actions, and tools for long-term implementation to reduce risk and potential for future losses. For more information, see County Hazard Mitigation Plan.

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.
