Work to Repave and Re-stripe Route 9 from the Northern Part of Revolutionary Road to Route 117 to Begin Immediately Work is estimated to be completed within several weeks depending on weather conditions. Besides the repaving of Route 9, the re-striping of the road will reflect a new traffic pattern in order to make the road safer for motorists and pedestrians. Left hand turning lanes will be designated and single lanes will be made wider and safer.  This project is the culmination of meetings between the NYSDOT, Assemblywoman Galef, local officials, and the community over several years to develop this new, safer traffic plan.

Ossining High School Scholarship -- Attention classes of 1946 - 1970
An effort is underway to develop a scholarship at OHS to honor the memory of Raymond Hughes, a great English teacher who was at OHS from 1946 to 1970.  This project already has raised nearly $3,000 and the target is $20,000.  The money is being invested by the school board and each year 85% of the income will be awarded to a graduating senior as an English prize and 15% will increase the investment so that the prize will increase each year, ad infinitum. Seven classes are now working on the effort but there is a need for e-mail addresses for members of the classes of '46, '47 '48, '50, '53, '54, '56, '57,  '59, '60, '61, '62, '64, '65,  '67, '68, and  ' 70.   Anyone interested in helping should contact Tom Schoonmaker (OHS '51) e-mail address --   schoonrt@verizon.net  (donations are tax deductible)

 

Pardon Our Appearance…you may have noticed construction materials and/or piping on Belleview Avenue, Browning Drive, Clinton Avenue, Linden Avenue, Noel Drive, Oakhill Terrace, Overton Road, Underhill Road, Upper Eastern and Walden Road.  This is due to a water main cleaning and lining project that the Village is undertaking.  The project will clean and re-line water mains that service some areas of the Village and will ensure delivery of clean, potable water for many years to come.  As with any project of this magnitude, there will be some slight inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.  If you are on any of the streets listed above you may see bypass water pipes laid above ground to service homes as well as to provide for fire protection.  These lines usually run on top of the curb line and will have to cross driveways and roadways at various locations. There are also access pits in roadways to allow the Village’s contractor to clean and cement line the mains.  Work is anticipated to continue until late fall.

 

We apologize for any inconveniences you may experience during the course of this project and look forward to the benefits that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
