Bulletin Board Submissions
The Town of Hyde Park Community Bulletin Board is broadcast on Cablevision channel 22 whenever Channel 22 is not being used to broadcast live or taped meetings or events that are of interest to the residents of Hyde Park.
Notices of events of general interest can be submitted by community organizations for posting on the bulletin board. In order to be considered, the submitting organization must be non-profit and must not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion or age. Notices that endorse a political candidate or advocate a particular manner of voting are not appropriate for the community bulletin board. Notices may be:
Please submit notices at least 2 weeks prior to the event. It may take up to a week for events to appear on the bulletin board. When submitting notices, you may send the information only in which case formatting will be at the discretion of the town. Or you may submit an image file with dimensions of 640 pixels (width) by 480 pixels (height). Be aware that the top and bottom 50 pixels and the left and right 60 pixels may not display on all television sets and you should avoid putting important content in these areas. We accept most standard image formats as well as Microsoft® Word (.doc or .rtf only) and Adobe® PDF files. We cannot accept:
- Microsoft® Publisher
- Microsoft® XPS
- Other word processing formats
If you submit an image that contains text, please be aware that Channel 22 is not a high definition channel and the broadcast image will have a much lower resolution than on a computer screen. Text should be no smaller in height than one sixteenth of the image height. This is about a 18 point font when working on 640 by 480 pixel images.
Please be aware that images that are printed on paper and mailed to our address lose some of their quality when they are posted and may take longer to post.
We reserve the right to not post images that do not meet these criteria. Storage media (disks, CDs, etc.) submitted with notices will not be returned.
Please include the name, phone number, email address (if available) and postal address of a contact person for each notice. Notices without this information will not be posted. If the event occurs on a specific date or dates, please indicate the date(s). If the notice is for an event that does not have a specific date (e.g., a request for volunteers), please indicate how long you want it posted. Notices will not be posted for longer than 2 months.
Right to Decline
The Town of Hyde Park reserves the right to decline to post any submission.
