Placemaking Committee

Placemaking is a method of reimagining and reinventing public spaces so as to attract people to gather, meet and mingle.  A space that is comfortable and looks inviting is likely to be successful.  The Placemaking Committee was formed to create those special places within Tarrytown.  It identifies specific areas that lend themselves to “placemaking” in town, and considers physical improvements/landscaping that could positively transform those places.  Beautiful, but not people-friendly spaces are to be avoided at all costs!

The Committee currently has representatives from: the Recreation Committee; the Historical Society; Chamber of Commerce; Warner Library; TASH; TEAC; Art Department of the UFSD of the Tarrytowns; and a representative of the Board of Trustees. 

The Placemaking Committee meets monthly, on Tuesdays at 4 pm, on Zoom.

If you are interested in serving on the Placemaking Committee please visit the Volunteer to Serve page on the website to submit an application.
