A Message from VOL

To our Residents, Merchants and Property Owners,

At long last, after many stops and starts, the Palmer Avenue Streetscape Improvement will begin in earnest right after Labor Day.  Because of this summer’s delay in starting, the entire project will not be completed in the Fall.  Some areas will be held over until the Spring.

The sequence of sidewalks and curbs to be replaced is controlled by the scheduled re-paving of Chatsworth Avenue from North Avenue to Roosevelt Avenue this Fall.  Simply put, those curbs have to go in first.  (By the way, ConEdison is sharing in the cost of the re-paving.)
Here is the sequence:   The colors refer to the attached map.
Red and Blue      Chatsworth from North to Vanderburgh
                            Chatsworth from train stairs to Franklin
Yellow                  Palmer from Chatsworth to Depot Way
 Pink                     Palmer from Chatsworth to East
 Green                  If Pink area is completed by first week of November, then Palmer from East Avenue to           
                             West Avenue. 
Light Blue             If Pink area is not completed by first week of November, Green area will be deferred to
                             Spring 2015.
 In which case, Palmer Avenue from Chatsworth to Franklin will be the last area completed in 2014.
 Grey                     Spring 2015.
However, tree removal work will begin on Palmer Avenue on Thursday, August 28 and on Chatsworth Avenue on Friday, August 29.  Parking in certain areas will be limited those days but restored at intervals as the work is completed.
Thank you to all for your patience and cooperation.  We know you will be delighted with the final outcome when the work is completed.  If you have any questions or concerns while the work is in progress, please e-mail them to
Anne McAndrews
Mayor, Village of Larchmont, NY

Same Bat Time

Kudos to Batman George Latimer for cutting through all the bureaucratic red tape to get the Palmer Avenue Streetscape back on track. Apparently the State's Department of Transportation was holding up the project because trees may not be cut down between March and October in an effort to protect the endangered Indiana Bat and the Northern Long Eared Bat. You simply can't  make this stuff up folks.  If anyone happens to see either of these bats on Palmer Avenue please a) take a picture to send me and b) direct them to Larchmont Avenue where the accommodations are much nicer than the ten or so dead trees that need to be removed from Palmer Avenue.

In other bat news, Bat Girl Catherine Parker released a memo regarding the influx of bats coming into Westchester this month.  

"If you find a bat in your home, don’t panic and never let the bat fly out the window. To learn how to safely capture a bat in your home, watch the video on the health department website at If there’s a chance that a person or pet in your house had contact with the bat, catch that bat and call the health department at 914-813-5000 to arrange to have it tested for rabies."
