River Dogs, Get Your Riverdogs!

May 8, 2009

On May 4, 2009, the Village Board of Trustees amended the village code to allow food vendors at Senasqua Park and at the new Croton Landing Park.

At no cost to the vendors, the Village will issue special permits for the 2009 summer season at Croton Landing Park. Up to three different food vendors will be chosen for Croton Landing to allow a variety of food options for visitors. The new half-mile long Croton Landing RiverWalk will be open every day from dawn to dusk and is drawing a growing number of visitors.

The Village will also issue a special permit to up to three food vendors at a cost of $350 for the 2009 summer concert season at Senasqua Park. The seven Senasqua Summer Concerts occur on Friday or Saturday evenings in June and July and typically draw several hundred picknickers.

Cooperation between interested parties in applying for a single vendor permit is encouraged. Vendors interested in applying for a permit should send an application letter to the Village Manager, Abraham Zambrano, 914- 271-4848, azambrano@crotononhudson-ny.gov. Said Zambrano, “The goal is to offer prepared food at these popular riverfront destinations for summer time visitors and to offer local dining establishment access to new customers.”

The application letter should include a draft menu (items and suggested retail prices) and any comments for the village to consider regarding the proposed regulations for park food vending (see attached). A sample application is attached.
