Our Town Needs You!
Please consider volunteering for the Town. The Town is looking for qualified residents for the following:
- Coastal Zone Management Commission
- Board of Architectural Review (Alternate)
- Recreation Commission
- Planning Board (Alternate)
- Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department (TMFD)
- Volunteer EMTs (VAC)
The Coastal Zone Management Commission is comprised of eleven members, each serving a term of three years. It was established in 1986 to monitor and coordinate the implementation of the New York State approved Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan. The Commission weighs in on proposed development in the watershed area. Residents of the unincorporated area of the Town and the Village of Larchmont who have a demonstrated knowledge in the areas of conservation, drainage and groundwater issues, or the effects of development on the environment are encouraged to apply. Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m.
The Board of Architectural Review is comprised of five members, each serving a term of three years. It was established in 1990 to review exterior plans or modifications to all structures except one-or two-family houses. All members of the Board of Architectural Review shall be specially qualified either by reason of training or experience in architecture, land development, city planning, real estate, landscape architecture, professional property values or other relevant business or profession or by reason of civic interest and sound judgment, to judge the effects of a proposed building or alteration or remodeling thereof upon the property values and development of surrounding areas. Meetings are held on the third Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m.
The Recreation Commission was established in 1954 to review and recommend recreation programs, activities, and the development or expansion of facilities. The seven-member Recreation Commission is comprised of residents from the unincorporated area of the Town, the Village of Mamaroneck and the Village of Larchmont. To maintain the representative balance of the commission, at this time we are seeking members who reside in the Village of Larchmont. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m.
The Planning Board is comprised of five members, each serving a term of five years. It was established in 1954 to review plans for the development of vacant areas, streets, and parks considering the environment, neighboring properties, traffic and parking. It reviews permits for subdivisions, site plans, freshwater wetlands, and special uses. At this time, we have an opening for an alternate member. In order to maintain a qualified and diverse board, we are currently seeking candidates with construction, engineering or architectural expertise rather than legal knowledge of this subject. The alternate serves an important function and may be called upon to vote on applications when a quorum of members is not available. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m.
