We have been working hard in assisting the village to apply for the first round of the NY Forward Program which is a scaled down version of the highly beneficial Downtown Revitalization Initiative. We are excited, if awarded either $2.25 or $4.5 million could be used towards transformative projects to reinvigorate our Village’s downtown area.
If you have ideas for projects please contact us or the Village Board.
The application has to be submitted to the Capital District Regional Economic Development Council by September, 23 2022.

What a wonderful day Riverkeeper Sweep on Saturday, October 17th was! COHMSA, supported by Village officials, staff and volunteers, helped clean up 225 lbs. of garbage from the banks of the Hudson River. We also removed a massive amount of scrub trees and overgrowth from Riverfront Park, unveiling this hidden treasure and revealing beautiful vistas of the River.
Riverkeeper, who organized this Sweep event in more than 65 sites along the Hudson from Brooklyn to the Capital Region said that with only half the sites reporting results, 27,801 lbs. of garbage was cleaned from the River. Thank you to everyone who helped maintain one of our most precious resources.

Special thanks to Mike Martin and team who was instrumental in helping Castleton in being recognized as a Tree City USA community.
You may have noticed the signs are up at the village entrances. Castleton has demonstrated a commitment to the public trees by managing them and caring for them. Below are a few key benefits of the TREE CITY USA program:
The Village of Castleton purchased five new trash cans. The old cans had been in service for many years and were heavily dented, rusted, and in poor condition. The old trash cans detracted from the pride and appearance of the sidewalks along Main Street. COHMSA helped support the effort to replace the cans by pushing for this improvement, researching what to purchase, and providing additional funds to the village to help offset the purchase price. These trash cans should look great along Main Street for years to come!
The Meet Me on Main planters are back out on Main Street for Memorial Day. We added a new metal planter this year that was donated by our friends at The Castleton Tractor Supply Store. We would like to thank them for their donation of the planter to be used on Main Street. The COHMSA team planted each of the planters and added flags.
With the current circumstances of COVID-19 that we are facing as a Nation we all can use some strength to get through this. To show we are all in this together and everything will be alright, COHMSA has placed Castleton Strong signs along Main Street. Keep thinking Castleton Strong!
Special thanks to the Village DPW for installing the new solar light on the flagpole and the County for lending their bucket truck through shared services. Great teamwork gets it done.
Did you see some activity on Main Street today?
COHMSA did a spring cleanup – socially distancing ourselves, of course!
The Castleton-on-Hudson Main Street Association submitted an entry for the HGTV show Home Town Takeover. Maybe, in concert with the entry by the village, we will be the chosen location! 🤞
