The Village of Pelham Manor issued this statement today (June 21) about plans to cloie Glover Field and take other steps ahead of and during a Mt. Vernon Memorial Field Fireworks display set for Saturday, June 22. This follows a concert last weekend at Hutchinson Field in Mt Vernon that prompted several noise complaints from Pelham Manor residents.
Today's Pelham Manor statement:

"We have reached out to the Westchester County Executive George Latimer, County Legislator Terry Clements, Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Thomas and the Mount Vernon Police Chief to express our concern regarding this event and others planned for this summer.
"In anticipation of the event, our Police Department will:
1) Close Glover Field
2) Place temporary No Parking Signs on local streets in the vicinity of Memorial Field
3) Enforce No Parking in the Town Library Parking lot
4) Enforce No Left Turn regulation at Ely & BPR and Wolfs & BPR
"We will monitor the situation and act within the bounds of our authority according to the facts as they occur."
