Beautification Advisory Board

Thanks also to our Beautification advisory Board- not only were members of the BAB instrumental in our streetscape plans – but they were the moving force behind lighting the trees in the triangle- which I think everyone will agree is a beautiful addition to our holiday décor this year. It has been very well received and I hope they will consider expanding the program when they look at their budgetary priorities next year.


Gabriel (Gabby) Rosenfeld

We have a new plaque hanging in our Assembly Room.   A few weeks back we held a a dedication ceremony for Gabby Rosenfeld.  The plaque reads:Gabriel (Gabby) Rosenfeld  1925-2014  “Mr. Chappaqua”, Gabby’s dedication and service to the Town of New Castle will be indelibly impressed on us all.  Gabby was New Castle’s longest serving Town Official.  He was a Zoning Board of Appeals member for 34 years, serving as its Chairman for 30 years.  His legacy is an inspiration to all of us.
