The Village of Tarrytown’s sponsorship of the popular al fresco on-street downtown dining returns Saturday, June 19.  Main Street will be closed from Broadway to South/North Washington Street at 5:30 p.m., and dining will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. The road will re-open at 10:30 pm. It is the first of 12 Saturday nights the closures will occur this summer.

In the case of rain, the on-street dining will take place on the subsequent Sunday evening.

This years’ closures will not feature the barricade COVID-19 setup. However, a 15-foot emergency lane down the center of Main Street will remain. Fifteen-minute parking intended for food take out and drop-off at the Tarrytown Music Hall will be in the following locations: South Washington Street, Broadway, South Washington Parking Lot (Lot 3).

The cost to the village in setting up the roadblocks on 12 weekends is estimated to be about $14,000.

Meanwhile, it appears a proposal being discussed by the Board of Trustees to allow restaurants to create “parklets,” which are extensions of dining services into designated parking spaces in front of establishments, may have hit a few roadblocks.

Village Administrator Richard Slingerland explained at the June 16 work session there are several state Department of Transportation regulations that would limit the number of “parklets.” Those include no dining services in handicapped spaces, or in front of fire hydrants and catch basins. Part of Main Street is also considered too steep for the outdoor setups.

In addition, the businesses would be required to get additional insurance coverage for the established spaces and they would be charged $75 a month for each space occupied.

“It’s not an easy thing for the businesses to get through,” Slingerland said.

As a result, trustees questioned how many businesses would be interested in the parklets under the circumstances.

“If it’s only three or four businesses, take it off the table,” said Trustee Doug Zollo.
