BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Briarcliff Manor is getting very close to picking a company to rebuild the pavilion in Walter W. Law Memorial Park, says Village Manager Philip E. Zegarelli.
The pool pavilion was destroyed by a suspicious fire in the middle of December 2015.
Firefighters were able to keep the massive blaze from spreading to the village’s library nearby and the pool itself was re-opened this summer.
The village hopes that the rebuilding and expansion of the pavilion will be complete by this coming spring, Zegarelli said in his latest letter to the community.
Meanwhile, the village is taking a look at its downtown “streetscape.”
A public hearing on possible improvements is set for 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, at the village’s WJV Community Center, 1 Library Road.
The village’s planner will be available to answer questions and to listen to the public’s ideas.
The village is also looking for volunteers to serve on two related committees, one of which will advised it on downtown revitalization efforts. The other will review and analyze the village’s comprehensive plan with regard to the existing B Zone districts for potential alternate uses for those properties.
