Enjoy our 2015 Holiday Special!


This past Saturday, Larchmont had its own Small Business Saturday to start off the holiday season. Rebecca Berman filed this report about the event, which helped Larchmont business owners to promote local holiday shopping.

At the Village of Mamaroneck Tree Lighting Social on December 10th, Santa arrived in a classic convertible. Ashley Billone has the story.

Light Up Larchmont, the Village of Larchmont’s holiday event received over 1,000 RSVP’s on Facebook. Over 500 free pictures were taken of the event and Rebecca Berman, who covered the event, said that was a never-ending line. People could choose the picture they wanted, and it would be sent to their email within seconds. If you couldn’t make it this year, there’s always next year.

Jack Wells and Andrey Gordon went to Hanukkah on Ice and filed this report. The event was presented by the Mamaroneck and Larchmont Chabad Lubavitch and was held on December 13th. There was ice skating and snacks and a menorah made of ice which was lit with all eight candles to signify the last night of Hanukkah. Some people came in costume including Rabbi Mendel Silberstein who dressed as Judah the Maccabee.

There’s a protest against KOSL Building Group regarding a historic house on 40 Ocean Avenue, Larchmont by residents in the area. The developer has already submitted plans to demolish the 120-year-old home to subdivide the property in four new homes. The Group, “Preserve Larchmont”, founded in 2013, have a mission to preserve and promote the historic traditions of the Village of Larchmont, collected 800 signatures to avoid the demolition of the historic landmark. As a result of increased applications to subdivide existing property in Larchmont and the collective opposition from residents to avoid the demolition, Village Administrator, Justin Datino, discussed this past Monday, that the Larchmont Board of Trustees is considering the enact of a new law.

The Village of Larchmont is encouraging residents to attend a public hearing to discuss the new resolution of a possible moratorium regarding certain land use applications that will affect the present and future development impact in the community. The hearing will be held on January 11, 2016 at 7:30 p.m at Village Hall.

Since 2009, the Village of Mamaroneck has tried to address parking on Mamaroneck Avenue. So far, parking has cost the Village around $15,000. The amount includes the cost of a parking study in 2013 and the cost of 18 unused parking meters. Both residents and business owners have opposed the purchases of license plate readers and pay-by-plate parking meters. The Village’s Board of Trustees formed an Ad-Hoc Parking Committee. The committee will propose recommendations for improving parking. Committee Chairwoman, Maria Derose, told the Mamaroneck Review, “We’re recommending the single-space meters because that’s what the residents, merchants and visitors of the Village of Mamaroneck want.” She estimated that the new meters would cost approximately $400 per unit, which would be $96,000 in total for the 240 meters needed for Mamaroneck Avenue. One feature of the new meters is a sensor that detects if the car has been moved and will then reset the remaining time to zero. The committee thinks that this would encourage turnover thereby helping merchants to bring in more customers.

In our Round Table Discussion, Mike Witsch spoke with Sebastien Langlois, the founder and creator of the new app, Rive.World. The app helps you find out what’s going on in your community.20151217_200006

 

In local sports this week, the Rye Neck Boys Basketball Team rallied from a 6-point 4th quarter deficit to force overtime against Martin Luther King. With time running out, sophomore, Aidan Heaton got the ball and one more chance to lift the Panthers to victory, which made our play of the week.

Our pet of the week is Bitty, a charming male Lab-mixed breed. He is about 10 months old and around 35 pounds. He’s very sweet and friendly with other dogs and children. Not too sure about cats though.
