It may not look like much now, but Briarcliff Manor is in the process of beautifying the parking lot, part of an ongoing series of village property upgrades.
Currently, new sidewalks and lighting are being installed in the lot, which should make significant progress by Friday, according to Village Manager Philip Zegarelli.
He said a new curb will be installed at the parking lot corner adjacent to the concrete," identical to the small experimental patch installed in front of Village Hall in 2010.
In addition, four LED-lit light posts will be installed in the parking lot which currently does not have any lighting and the bench currently facing the street will be replaced.
Down the road, Zegarelli said all of Pleasantville Road in the downtown will likely have new, wider sidewalks and light fixtures.
The sidewalk replacements will address the cracks and bumps currently in place, including large ones in the fire department driveway where Zegarelli said the trucks' pressure have caused rifts.
"It's easier to keep clean," he added of the new sidewalks.
Recently, the village replaced the 1963 building's windows , as well as used leftover grant funds to install approximately 18 kW of solar panels at the building.
A at the "has been working phenomenally well," Zegarelli revealed.
The village's ongoing upgrades are being planned in order to avoid any emergency repairs over time as well as "maintain the ambiance of the area," Zegarelli said.
