Village Elections: Village elections for Mayor (3-year term) and two Board of Trustee seats (3-year term) will be held on Tuesday, March 19, 2024. The three polling locations are Emanuel Lutheran Church, the Recreation Center, and Hayes Hose Fire House. The Westchester County Board of Elections conduct village elections in Pleasantville, and they will be mailing polling locations to each enrolled voter. Anyone with questions can contact the Westchester County Board of Elections at 914-995-5706.  

Request to place red light camera on the Saw Mill River Parkway at Grant Street: In an effort to enhance pedestrian safety, the Village has formally requested that a red light camera be placed on the Saw Mill River Parkway at the Grant Street intersection. The Saw Mill River Parkway is owned by the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) with traffic enforcement done by the Westchester County Police Department. State legislation enabling the placement of red light cameras on NYSDOT roadways would be required. The Village’s NYS representatives are working on this initiative.  

Manville Road Pedestrian Project will resume in late-March: The project, which is approximately half-way complete, will restart the week of March 18.  The remaining work includes the construction of a retaining wall around monument island to enable the placement of a right hand turn lane from Memorial Plaza onto Manville Road. To facilitate this phase of construction, the plantings and trees near the retaining wall will be removed, and the flag poles temporarily taken-down. In the final phase of the project, the flagpoles will be re-installed, and new trees and landscaping added. Once the right hand turn lane has been constructed at the Memorial Plaza/Manville Road intersection, new curbing and sidewalk will be installed around the monument and across the existing slip lane. The sidewalk will widen as it extends over the MTA bridge towards Wheeler Avenue. For an overview of the Manville Road project, click here.

Work in the northern end of Memorial Plaza: The Manville Road project will result in the removal of the right hand ‘slip lane’ exiting the north end of Memorial Plaza. Reconfigured parking will remain on the railroad side of the median, and we will add plantings, trees and lawn area near the monuments. This work is projected to cost approximately $600,000, which is supported by $450,000 in grant funding. This work contributes toward the proposed civic space, if that project is undertaken in the future. This work is expected in summer/fall 2024. Click here to view a rendering.
