Chappaqua Downtown Revitalization – April 30, 2019

Over the last few weeks, we’ve installed new curbing, new sidewalks & new decorative light poles on South Greeley from Town Hall to the traffic triangle. Decorative light poles were also installed from the library to Bell School (Bell School side). Trenches have been excavated for the sitting wall by Pizza Station, and the footing for new decorative lights have been installed.

On North Greeley, on the Rite Aid side, we installed new curbing up to the Rite Aid parking lot. On the other side of North Greeley, curbing was installed from the Post Office to Lower King & sidewalks were installed. The old utility poles on South Greeley have been removed by Con Ed.

The start of the installation of brick pavers will take place on Monday, 5/6 on South Greeley from Washington Ave to Woodburn (Town Hall side).

Over the last 6 months, we have been working with the state to receive approval for a revised curb line by the historical society & Ibiza Kitchen. Last Friday, we finally received permission from the state to bring the curb line back to near its original spot in front of the historical society and revise the curb from Ibiza to Petticoat Lane. We expect the actual construction of that revised curb line to begin in May/June.

On Tuesday, 4/30, trees on North Greeley and Upper King (by Mikolay’s) were removed.

We will excavate the sidewalk in front of Susan Lawrence & lower King starting 5/6 – this excavation will be done at night. However, since the concrete plants are only open during the day, curb and sidewalks will be day work.

In anticipation for little league parade, 5K/10k road race and Memorial Day Parade – all scheduled for May – temporary road paving to smooth the road and remove trip hazards is currently scheduled for 5/2/19 on upper King and South Greeley.

Please keep in mind that the time frame of this project was 24 months. This summer we will be approaching the 2 year mark. Water main improvements have been completed (1,650+/- feet pipe, new valves, hydrants and fittings). The sanitary sewer improvements have been be completed (700+ of new pipes, new sewer manholes & castings). The storm sewer improvements have also been completed (1,500+/- pipe, replacement and/or repair of existing catch basins, frames and grates). Con Ed replaced their gas lines. Now the part that will improve the appearance of downtown Chappaqua – the streetscape improvements! The streetscape work will also make it safer for residents to walk around our downtown.
