Mrs. Sica , of the Munsey Park Women’s Club, informed the Board that they will be hosting their annual “Light the Night” on Sunday, December 7, 2014.  The Board approved the event.




Munsey Park Women’s Club is requesting permission from the Board to hold their annual Halloween Parade on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 3:00pm.  The Board approved the event.


634 PARK AVENUE – MRS. LEE           


Mrs. Lee had gone before the Building Advisory Board to obtain a new ruling on the stone on her house.  After discussion, motion made by Trustee Lippman to deny Mrs. Lee’s application and she must replace the stone on her house to the original approved “fieldstone”, seconded by Trustee Noone and approved by all.  Mrs Lee has until December 8, 2014 to comply by removing the stone on her house and replace it with “fieldstone”.




Trustee Noone advised the Board that she has reviewed the parking issue surrounding the school dismissal.  She will change around the location of the “No Parking” signs to allow parking on one side of the street to allow cars facing away from Munsey park School.  This is in an attempt to provide safer conditions for pedestrians and drivers during dismissal.  She hopes to have the parking situation implemented at the beginning of November for a test run.  Mrs. Langner from Durand Place also complained about the parking at the corner of Remington and Hunt.  Parent’s park right up to the stop sign and children crossing cannot see the cars.  Trustee Noone will also look into that situation.




Trustee Lippmann announced that in the future the Board will be reviewing village bonds and looking into financial consultants.




Work is complete at Copley Park Pond and there will be a grand re-opening of the park on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 2:00pm.  All residents are welcome.


Motion to go into executive section made by Trustee Lippmann, seconded by Trustee Noone and confirmed by all.
