In Briarcliff... Pavilion Pushes Forward

A major and highly visible threshold recently appeared over Briarcliff Manor’s Law Park Pavilion as it received its new “backbone.” Following the near-total destruction of the iconic Pavilion at the heart of Briarcliff’s recreation facilities in December 2015, there is now a new truss and roof system being painstakingly reset.  Village Manager Phil Zegarelli stated that the rebuilding is slated for completion in early May 2017, ahead of the traditional Memorial Day opening of the Village’s pool and park facilities.

Planning & Looking Ahead in Briarcliff

On Wednesday, October 5th about 40 people attended a meeting at the Community Center in Briarcliff Manor hosted by the Mayor and Board of Trustees. Attending were residents, business owners and their landlords. They were there to listen to and comment about what the Village government sees as the potential to make its streetscape more appealing and to consider new building over the existing one-story business district along Pleasantville Road. Briarcliff has hired BFJ planners from New York City for $25,000 to do an initial assessment of what exists in the Village Business District and what can be done to make the District better.

For the Village of Sleepy Hollow it’s the Town of Mount Pleasant. For the Village of Briarcliff Manor it’s both the Town of Mount Pleasant and the Town of Ossining. Ten percent of Briarcliff Manor is within Mount Pleasant and ninety percent is within Ossining.
