Massaro Park Safety Upgrades

At a recent Town Board work session, the Chief of Police and Building Inspector reported on neighborhood quality-of-life improvements at and alongside Massaro Park.

In terms of the park itself: the Parks and Recreation Commissioner reports that in early July work will begin at Massaro Park to renovate the outdoor basketball court. This will include a new retaining wall, fencing, the south end of the court expanded and a new court surfacing.  The walking path around the park will also be repaved and the side entrance from Cabot Avenue renovated by removing the concrete pad and repaving the entire area up to the park’s building. Any questions about the park upgrades can be directed to the P&R Dept at: 914-989-1800.

The parking area off of Payne Street was recently closed down and in the near future work will begin to build a new parking lot configuration with a curb sidewalk and fencing with gates. The parking lot was deemed difficult to navigate and will be configured to allow for angled parking and pulling out safely within the confines of that space and not in the roadway. An exit route for cars will be established. Fencing around the park, which has existed for many years, will be further connected along with adding entry gates for the park so that it can be locked after hours. Signage will be updated to allow for police to tow and/or issue summons as necessary to reduce late-night congregating. 

Meanwhile the deli on the block has been shut down by the building department pending compliance with multiple code violations both structural and electrical deeming the 1915 property unsafe. There will be a proper driveway created, along with a real curb, so cars won’t park over the sidewalk the way they can currently. The deli also does not comply with zoning in what is currently a residential-only district, but is grandfathered in unless the repairs are so extensive they require a tear-down. The owner is considering his options.
