Community Engagement Updates

Rye Neck High School Student Roundtable Discussion. We met with a group of sophomores at Rye Neck High School on May 31st to talk about life in the Village. The conversation touched on a wide range of topics, including “The Avenue” as a destination, biking, Harbor Island Park, trash and recycling, and school enrollment. We are working toward a similar discussion with Mamaroneck High School students.

July 12th Summer on the Avenue Block Party. We are planning to have a booth at this event to reach out to more residents, and business-owners too.
