Vandalism Notice

7/7/2020

This morning, the Village became aware of vandalism at an unoccupied property, this vandalism was of a racist nature. We will not give credence to this by sharing a photograph. It is deeply disturbing that this has occurred within proximity to our community, we believe we are better than this. Stamford tends to come together in times of crisis. As proud Americans the words “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” should hold meaning, they do for the Stamford Village Mayor, and the Stamford Village Board of Trustees condemns such actions; and we ask residents to come together at this time in making it clear that we as a community do not support racial prejudice, nor will we tolerate racist actions; because our community is better than this.


Pool Press Release

Press release, For immediate release.

02 June, 2020

From:  The Mayor’s office, Village of Stamford NY

The Mayor and Trustees of the Village of Stamford are pleased to announce that the process for the replacement of the Village Pool has begun. The current Village pool which opened in the summer of 1959 has reached the end of its serviceable life and will be closed and filled in. The new Village Pool will be located behind the Churchill Library in the space currently occupied by the Little League Field. The location of the current pool is unsuitable due to an abundance of ground water at that site. Older Village residents will recall that this site had been a pond used for swimming more than a half century ago. The Little League field will be relocated to the site of the old pool if space allows otherwise it will be moved to Archibald Field.

Design work for the new pool and pool house has been completed by K & K Gunite of Delanson NY and the project will go out to bid this month. This project is made possible by a very generous gift from The Robinson Broadhurst Foundation. The total cost of the new pool is expected to be approximately 1.5 million. When dedicated the new pool will be named “The Robinson Broadhurst Memorial Pool” in honor of the Robinson Broadhurst family whose generosity and foresight have provided so much to our village.

In addition to the pool project the Robinson Broadhurst Foundation has approved several other grant requests made by the village that include: Additional funding to address bighted buildings, Oil and Stone for village streets, Architectural design work for the Village Hall, Rexmere Park and the Kelsey house, Software upgrades for the DPW and summer employment for a portion of the lifeguards displaced by Covid-19.

The next 24 months will be very busy in our village. Three large projects will be underway simultaneously. Sidewalk and lighting replacement along Main and Harper Streets, Phase two of the water infrastructure project involving West Main, Lake and River Streets, The new municipal pool and replacement of the bridge/culvert on South Street. Together these projects represent a multi-million-dollar investment in our community.

As we move out of the Covid-19 quarantine the village will be continuing with numerous initiatives that were started last year. The Mayor and Trustees are very optimistic about the future of our village and there is an expectation of great things ahead.

Delaware County has agreed to provide a temporary bridge to the Village of Stamford

Delaware County has agreed to provide a temporary bridge to the Village of Stamford so that we may open South Street to vehicular traffic (with a weight limit). The Covid-19 crisis has pushed all county projects into the future so this temporary measure will get the street open to through traffic once more. The temporary bridge is scheduled to be installed on Monday April 27th.
