Tarrytown News 6.30.2020- Pool Opening, Parking Returns to Normal, July 4th Break and More!

Swimming Pool - TarrytownPool Opening Mid-July

First off, thank you to everyone who responded to our pool survey. We had about 400 responses. The results of the study guided our decision making and we are happy to announce the pool will be open in Mid-July. We'll provide the exact date as we get closer, but you can expect it to open sometime between July 13th and July 20th. 

This pool season will definitely be an interesting one... and one that will require patience from those who will be coming down to enjoy the water! Patrons will need to "reserve" time at a swim block (or lap lane) in advance, and may only reserve one swim block (or 60 mins of lap lane) per day. Rates are about 60% of what they normally are to reflect the fact that we will only be open for about 60% of the season. Additionally will have a block of time in the morning for our golden year patrons (ages 60+). Additional information on changes at the pool and what you need to know can be found on our pool flyer.... Of course you can also reach out to our Recreation Department at 914-631-8347 or [email protected] with any questions as well. 

July 4th Break.... (Including No Closure of Main St)

Bear with us because we have a few updates PACKED into this "story".

July 4th is Saturday, which means Village Hall Offices will be closed Friday July 3rd in observance of the National Holiday. Alternate Side Parking will be Suspended on July 3rd.

ICYMI, we announced on May 14th that the July 4th Fireworks had been postponed due to COVID-19. We are still working on the possibility of a new date late summer/early fall, and we'll keep everyone in the loop...

Tarrytown's Dine Out Friday & Saturday will be taking a break for the holiday weekend; so no street closure on Main Street this weekend (July 3 or 4). 

Friday Garbage will not be collected (commercial district) nor will bulk trash due to the short work week. 

Return to Normal Parking July 1

On July 1 ALL parking in the Village of Tarrytown will return to normal operations. By all, we mean - no more 30 minute parking at on street meters; permits and/or payment will be required in our off-street lots (including the recreation lot); AND last but not least, commuter parking at the train station will once again require a permit or payment at a meter. A sign of the times, parking is becoming more difficult to find in the downtown town as we re-open, so If you weren't already aware, alternate side parking has been in effect since June 1. All parking is returning to normal, so if we missed anything in this list... we'll say it again...  all parking will be back to normal July 1.

Census LogoCensus...Census... Census!!!!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! We're gonna keep beating this drum until the last minute! Lastly, we want to remind the community to fill out their census! Currently we have a response rate of 67.1%. In 2010 we had a response rate of 69.0%. Our goal for the 2020 Census is to get those numbers even higher!  Now more than ever in these difficult times we need as many households as possible to fill out the census. A complete count of Tarrytown means additional funding for our schools, hospitals, public safety operations, garbage and other local services. Estimates have stated that every person counted as a Tarrytown resident results in an annual allocation of up to $2,400 for local services. The higher the response rate, the more likely New York State will be fairly and equitably represented at the Federal level (think congress!) as the census determines how many representatives we are allotted. Fill out your census today at https://my2020census.gov/. Finally - when you submit, your data is protected.
