Chappaqua Downtown Revitalization – October 23, 2018

Final drainage work on North Greeley from lower King to Maple will continue this week. After spending weeks trying to get Verizon to relocate their underground conduits, we have decided to redesign drainage to go under the conduits. Granite curbing was installed on North Greeley from Bischoff to Maple – sidewalks will be installed soon. Granite curbing was installed on North Greeley from Maple to Post Office – sidewalks will be installed soon. Granite curving is currently being installed on South Greeley from Washington to Woodburn (library side). The first light pole footings have been installed. Sidewalks will be installed soon. Work has begun on the removal of all of the existing trees from the Bell School parking lot to the corner of Allen Place. This is part of the planned streetscape improvements. Once the trees are removed, the area will be regraded and then a total of 8 new sugar maple trees will be planted next week along this corridor, along with planned landscaping around the new electronic sign. The trees that were removed were primarily Norway Maples, which is considered an invasive tree species by NYS, over half of the trees had structural defects and were in various states of decline. These trees will be replaced with native sugar maple trees which will create a nice tree lined corridor of trees all the same height and of course will provide amazing fall color! Con Edison continues transferring over the services. All this work is being performed overnight. Please remember to check the Town of New Castle website for all updates.
