Village Of Ossining Rejects Greater Ossining Chamber of Commerce's Petition

The Village Clerk has rejected the Greater Ossining Chamber of Commerce’s petition for a public referendum related to Resolution Q, adopted February 1, 2017.  That said, today’s Village Work Session will now take place at Birdsall-Fagan Police Court Facility at 86-88 Spring Street. We anticipate a larger than usual attendance, and would like to provide more space for seating. While this is still a Work Session, we will invite questions from the public regarding the petition process.

Ossining Roundabout Update

What follows is a statement from Gayle Marchica, President of the Greater Ossining Chamber of Commerce:

Congratulations to all for a continued and cohesive effort toward reaching our "magic" number! This process has been an intoxicating reminder of the democracy we sometimes take for granted and the powerful impact we can have on each other and our community when we work together. Maintaining focus, ignoring and refraining from negative banter, and maximizing each and every opportunity to harvest signatures in the next few days is key to the success of our efforts.

It’s a Compatibility Thing…A Roundabout in Ossining’s Historic Downtown District?

The Mayor of Ossining, Victoria Gearity, and the Board of Trustees voted 3-2 in favor of moving forward with a consulting firm to assess a roundabout in the heart of Ossining’s business district. This roundabout would be built where Main Street, Spring Street, Central Avenue and Brandreth Street all converge. In this first part of a two-part series, active and local opposition to this proposal is expressed.

“Where in the United States do you have a circle or roundabout in an historic district? Where? Nowhere. We haven’t found it; we haven’t seen it. We have asked this question of the Board of Trustees and have gotten no response. The real issue is that you are destroying the downtown district even further [with a roundabout] than it already was with Urban Renewal,” said Kaja Gam, an Ossining resident, Main Street business owner and member of the Historic Preservation Commission.
