Save the Date – February 24 at 6:30 PM
Residents will be receiving a card in the mail encouraging all to come to our Board of Trustee meeting on Tuesday, February 24th at the Living Christ Church. The first two hours of the meeting will be an open session devoted to hearing the concerns of our residents regarding the location of the Shared Use Path (SUP) terminus. The South Nyack TZ Bridge Task Force will also be in attendance to hear comments.
Village Board members, the Village Engineer and the DPW Superintendent have been working with Thruway folks on a drainage issue that is affecting Piermont Avenue. They have also met with the developers of the Pavion LLC project planned on Cedar Hill Avenue, and with the Nyack Planning Board on issues that could impact our village.
Both the TZB Task Force and I have spoken with members of the Federal Highway Administration. They now have a good understanding of the negative impacts of the SUP terminus being located at Cornelison and South Broadway. The location for the terminus should be at exit 10. The FHWA has promised to follow up with the Thruway and their consultants and get back to us.
Please don’t forget to send in your comments on the location of the shared use path to Brian Conybeare at Info@NewNYBridge.com and copy me at Bonnie.Christian@southnyack.ny.gov. Once again, the proposals are posted on the New NY Bridge website: http://www.newnybridge.com/documents/sup.
Here’s a suggested response:
“I am a South Nyack resident. I am opposed to the current proposals to locate the entrance to the New NY Bridge Shared Use Path at Cornelison Avenue and South Broadway. The Thruway Authority must continue to work with South Nyack to develop a workable solution that benefits South Nyack and surrounding communities.”
The deadline to respond is Friday, February 13!
As always have a wonderful weekend!
