Library Project Fundraising Update

Thanks to donations from more than 130 households and two extraordinary $1M challenge grants, which effectively double the value of donations made during the challenge period, over $5M is now committed toward the Library's $7.5M fundraising goal! While very much “on track,” the Library Campaign Committee remains active in soliciting new gifts and pledges to enable construction of the Library Addition and Renovation project to begin on-time in the first half of 2018.

Road Resurfacing Prioritization

The Village of Scarsdale maintains over 90 centerline miles of roadway. Our Pavement Management System (PVMS), which is based on a village-wide roadway physical condition survey, is important in setting annual road resurfacing priorities. The last roadway condition survey was completed in 2009 and it needs to be updated. The Village Board approved a contract last night with MHM Associates for a 2017 update to the PVMS. For more info, see last night's Village Board Agenda Item (page 80).

The project scope includes resident and staff interviews, discussions with regulatory entities and peer communities, and other tasks. The forward-looking final report will include recommendations for ensuring ethical, efficient service delivery, as well as suggested practices for achieving fair and equitable property tax distribution. For more info, see last night's Village Board Agenda Item (page 48).
