Halloween in Tivoli: Pumpkin Promenade at the Park!

The Plan for HALLOWEEN: Save the Date! Saturday, October 31st 4:30-6:30PM at Memorial Park. (If weather forces cancellation, there will be no rain date.)

Many families in the Village have been talking and wondering about what to do for Halloween this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Village of Tivoli Board of Trustees is strongly discouraging traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating this year.

But . . . The Village of Tivoli and the Tivoli Free Library are organizing an alternative event that we think will be really fun and much safer. We will host a Pumpkin Promenade! A Jack-o-Lantern Jaunt! in Tivoli’s Memorial Park. We will create a one-way trail around the park along which we invite participants to bring and place their jack-o-lanterns at safely spaced intervals. You are invited to show off your creations, to make a display as simple as one jack-o lantern or several, on the ground or bring a folding table or stool for your jack-o-lantern(s) if you wish. Please be ambitious!

Your jack-o-lanterns can compete for the best in various categories: scariest, funniest, most detailed, most clever, cutest and best in show.

Dress up and show off your costumes.

At the end of the trail there will be a prepackaged candy grab-bag which kids can collect. We are soliciting donations of individually pre-wrapped candy at the Clerk’s office between now and Wednesday, October 28th. Please consider helping us by donating a bag of candy!

We challenge you to light up our park with a blaze of Jack-o-lanterns! (But bring please a flashlight as well).

This is how it works. Preregister for this free event by Wednesday the 28th at https://bit.ly/TivoliPumpkinPromenade<https://tivoliny.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=db32a6873991aa156ac2f8920&id=3c59f35ae3&e=2d2a6fbdf1> or call the Tivoli Free Library at 757-3771. Arrive between 4:30 and 5 pm, select a flagged location and position your pumpkin. Flags will be positioned to mark safe spacing.  Judges will stroll at 5:45 and announce category winners by 6. All jack-o-lanterns must be retrieved by 7:00PM.

Participation in this event is limited to Tivoli residents and Tivoli businesses.

Masks are required, and not just the scary kind!!!!

Present: Mayor Cranna, Deputy Mayor Leedy, Trustees Ezrati and Griffith
Absent: Trustee Bruno.

Public: Attorney Christine Chale, Sandy Carroll

The Public Hearing for proposed Local Law 2-2012 was called to order at 6:03pm by Mayor Cranna.

Attorney Chale read the Notice of Public Hearing. (See attached).

Mayor Cranna asked if anyone from the public would like to address the board. Sandy Carroll said she attended a meeting last night and felt she was heard at the meeting.

The Mayor asked Trustee Ezrati if she would like to discuss last night’s meeting.

Trustee Ezrati said there were ten to twelve attendees at the meeting in addition to the ZRC and Michele Greig. The Zoning Review Committee (Thomas Cordier, Martin Clarke, Mark Bennett and Jennifer Harris) with Trustee Ezrati and Planner Michele Greig have been meeting weekly. The work is almost at a conclusion. Trustee Ezrati is hopeful that the need for the moratorium will be somewhat limited. She stated that this is an ongoing process as part of revising zoning throughout Tivoli to conform to the comprehensive plan that was started in 2005. The historic district and the bulk regs revisions took about four years. Some of the work done on that affected the RB district. New standards were set for scale. This stage of the process is about permitted uses and special permitted uses.

Trustee Griffith asked if the moratorium could be lifted if the ZRC finished its work before the six month time frame. Attorney Chale stated that an additional local law would be needed to repeal the moratorium.

Mayor Cranna thanked everyone who has worked on the project.

On a motion by Deputy Mayor Leedy, seconded by Trustee Griffith, the public hearing was closed at 6:10 pm, all in favor.

Respectfully submitted,

 

Linda Gonnella
Village Clerk & Treasurer
