[ARCHIVED] From the Mayor’s Desk…March 1, 2022

New Police Officers                           

Last night, I had the pleasure of swearing in two new Police Officers for the Irvington Police Department. Joining our department are Estefania Mejia and Jonathan Bloomfield. They have not hit the streets of Irvington just yet since they are both attending the Police Academy, but I am looking forward to seeing them serve our community for many years to come. 

While I am excited to have new officers in our ranks, I will miss those who retired recently. Please join me in congratulating Sgt. Erik Seman, Det. David Walsh and Det. Michael Toolan on their retirement after many years of dedicated service to our community. 

Over the years, swearing in new members to our outstanding Police Department has become one of my most enjoyable duties as Mayor and last night was no exception. So when you see them in town, be sure to extend a friendly greeting and welcome them to Irvington.

 

  Irvington Woods – Community Forest Management Plan Public Meeting

The Village of Irvington is developing its first Community Forest Management Plan (CFMP) for Irvington Woods.  Arborist Miguel Berrios of LBS Ecological has been working closely with the Village of Irvington, its Recreation and Parks Department, and the O’Hara Nature Center to inventory the Woods and determine best management practices to improve forest health.

The vision for the project is to create a CFMP that will serve as clear directions to improve the Village's urban forest management efforts in the Woods. In recommending the most effective combination of site interventions for Irvington Woods, the project will enable improvements in native species diversity retention, invasive plant removal, evidence of the regeneration and growth of native tree species, and protection of the public via reduced risk from hazardous trees. A healthy, regenerating forest will improve quality of life, and deliver economic, social and health benefits.

Join us for a virtual public presentation on Monday, March 14th at 7pm, where Miguel will discuss the current state of the Irvington Woods, and recommendations from the Community Forest Management Plan.  We would appreciate your attendance and input! The Village web site has all the details: www.irvingtonny.gov

Be well,

Brian C. Smith, Mayor
