CASTLETON-ON-HUDSON NY, April 30, 2021 – On April 30, 2021, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced that the Village of Castleton-on-Hudson was awarded $21,250.00 as part of Round 15 Phase 2 of the Urban and Community Forestry Grant.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to receive the grant which will greatly assist us in managing the tree-lined streets in our community,” stated Village Mayor Joe Keegan.
The grant will help the Village create an inventory of the trees located along the streets of the Village, including size, species, and condition, as well as developing a management plan for maintenance and replanting.
Castleton-on-Hudson was one of 26 projects, and one of only three in the Capital Region, that were selected during Phase 2 of the Urban and Community Forestry Round 15 grants.
This year, $1.18 million was awarded in projects to implement comprehensive tree management plans which seek to maintain the natural beauty and quality of life for communities receiving the grants.
In addition to its partnership with the Department of Environmental Conservation, the Village of Castleton-on-Hudson has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation, becoming a member of their Tree City USA program in 2019.
Congratulations to returning trustees:
And welcome new trustee:
Thanks to all the candidates who ran for office and thanks to all who voted.
The Mayor has declared a snow emergency starting Monday 2/1/21 at noon until Tuesday 2/2/21 at noon. Depending on how much snow we have those snow emergency dates could be extended.
In a snow emergency please make every effort to not park on village streets. If you cannot park your car off the street here are snow emergency rules for parking:
For North Main Street (Scott Ave to Riverside) : Park on the west side of the street (river side).
For South Main Street: While it is snowing, park on the east side of the street (The Store side); once the snow stops, move to the west side.
For everyone else in the Village, we use the odd/even system so that the plows don’t have to zig-zag in and out of parked cars on both sides of the street. On odd days we ask that you NOT park on the odd side of the street. On even days we ask that you NOT park on the even side of the street. If you live at a dead end, please do not use that space for parking so the plows can push the snow to the end of the street.
During a snow emergency there is NO parking on any of the hills in the village. This includes Stimpson Avenue, Green Avenue, Scott Avenue and Seaman Avenue.
If you are not able to park in your own driveway, here is where you can park (until 48hrs after the end of the snow emergency):
1. Sacred Heart Church on Stimpson Avenue
2. Trinity Lutheran Church on Green Avenue
3. Behind the Fire House (do not park in front of any garage doors)
4. The two village owned lots on South Main St. One is across from the post office next to Grants Auto and the other is next to Cherrybrook Diner across from The Store.
