A Note about Village Meetings

As of September 13, 2022, Governor Hochul's Executive Order 11.9, which allowed for the videoconferencing option for public meetings, ended. IN PERSON public meetings of the Village of Mamaroneck (Boards, Commissions, and Committees) are now being held. The elected or appointed members of these public bodies must attend these meetings IN PERSON. When an elected or appointed member of a public body cannot attend the meeting in person, the Village of Mamaroneck may hold remote meetings through the use of videoconferencing per Local Law 4-2022.

Meeting locations can be found on the Village’s online calendar. Members of the public who wish to participate in these meetings may also attend these meetings IN PERSON. Occasionally, and at the discretion of the Chair and/or Trustee Liaison of the public body, videoconferencing (i.e. Zoom) may be available and publicized on the Village’s online calendar should members of the public wish to participate in the meeting through videoconferencing. 

As always, meetings for the Village’s Board of Trustee as well as the Land Use Boards (the Board of Architectural Review, the Harbor and Coastal Zone Management Commission, the Planning Board, and the Zoning Board of Appeals) can be viewed on LMC Media or via LMC Media’s YouTube Channel.

Comprehensive Plan Community Survey Results

Thank you to the 850 people who completed the Village of Mamaroneck’s Comprehensive Plan Community Survey! Click here for a summary of the results.

Community Survey Results SMALL PNG

The Village of Mamaroneck is preparing an update of its Comprehensive Plan, a guidance document that sets the goals, policies, and priorities for investing in the physical, social, economic, and environmental future of the community.

The current Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2012. The process to update the plan started in 2018 and included two public workshops and public review of two drafts of an updated Comprehensive Plan. Due to the major events and changes that have taken place since then, including the COVID-19 pandemic and Hurricane Ida, the Community Survey was launched to reconnect with Village residents about their opinions about the Village today and into the future. The purpose of the survey is to learn how sentiments may have changed, whether any priorities have shifted, if any existing issues have improved or worsened, or if any new issues have emerged.

The focus of the Community Survey was to gauge the level of satisfaction among residents about various aspects of the Village today and to identify the highest priority topics. The survey provided opportunities for respondents to include written comments.
