New Castle Master Plan Public Information Meeting
On March 12, 2015 the Pace Land Use Law Center presented us with a summary of the existing characteristics of New Castle as provided through the Westchester County Base Studies. The discussion was very informative and provided residents with a greater understanding of the Comprehensive Plan Update Process and its relationship to the Downtown Chappaqua Infrastructure and Streetscape Project, Chappaqua Crossing and other projects throughout the Town.

New Castle Hopeful State Budget to Include Sewer Funding
State and local officials expressed cautious optimism that significant funds would be earmarked in the state’s 2015-16 budget for wastewater treatment and clean water projects that could help pay for New Castle’s sewage diversion project.
New Castle Supervisor Robert Greenstein said he met last Wednesday with state Sen. Terrence Murphy (R-Yorktown) and learned that the Senate has proposed a $1 billion matching grant program for the new fiscal year, which starts Apr. 1, to help pay for projects that would protect the state’s drinking water supply.

We are very excited to announce the Chamber’s first big spring event: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a Special Saturday for our Kids.
Date: Saturday, April 11, 2015
This day is an opportunity for our kids to gain a sense of community and neighborhood. Kids (ages preschool through elementary and up) and their parents will take self-guided tours of our downtown with stop-off points to meet key town officials. They will also have an opportunity to learn more about the local businesses and meet YOU, the owners.
To be listed on our map, please send payment via link below. Businesses without downtown storefronts will be provided a table in a location downtown and will be shown on the map we are creating. We will notify you of location by April 6th.
It is important that we receive your payment by March 25th in order to meet printing deadlines.

Please remember this is not the downtown trick or treating event or Community Day; this is purely educational and fun. It is a way for our residents to meet YOU and learn about YOUR BUSINESS. This is a great chance for you to promote your business, so we encourage you to come up with additional creative ideas to make your business standout.
We are so excited about this event, and we need your help to ensure it’s success. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.

Local Action, Global Outreach
A Different Sort of March Madness is a town-wide effort this month to reach out and help others in little and big ways. Let your imagination be your guide. Sponsored by the Chappaqua Interfaith Council and the Chappaqua Library, you might bring lunch to a sick neighbor, volunteer to help a non-profit or surprise someone with cookies or freshly baked bread. Maybe shovel a neighbor’s walkway after a recent snowfall. Or pay for coffee for the next person in line… something to help others every day.
Our goal is a caring community!
Here’s an idea, consider volunteering at a local school. Dr. Lyn McKay, Superintendent of the Chappaqua School, says: “Our residents continually and enthusiastically donate their time, talents and expertise to partner with Chappaqua Schools in preparing students to be caring, active, productive, and responsible citizens in a 21st-century democratic society. This partnership is essential to students’ success.”
