December 5, 2014. The Tappan Zee Bridge Task Force has written a chronological order of their activities which is published in its entirety on the Village web site: http://188.8.131.52/~southnyackny under the TZB Updates. This report covers the history of events leading up to the unacceptable decision of the Bridge Authority that the Shared Use Path will end at the corner of Cornelison and South Broadway.
Congresswoman Nita Lowey is urging the State and the New NY Bridge Team to meet with the Tappan Zee Task Force members and others to discuss the terminus ending at Interchange 10. Senator David Carlucci, Assemblywoman, Ellen Jaffee, Legislator Nancy Low Hogan, and Orangetown Supervisor Andy Stewart are all in agreement and supportive on this issue.
Members of the Tappan Zee Task Force and I have requested a meeting with Governor Cuomo in Albany on Wednesday, December 10th. We hope to meet with the Governor in person to discuss our concerns and review the issues related to the terminus of the Shared Use Path and the impact on South Nyack.
In neighboring Nyack, a developer has proposed building a condominium complex on the site of the former Pavion factory on Cedar Hill Avenue, which sits on the border with South Nyack. We have been given a copy of the plans and have the opportunity to provide comments and input to the Nyack Planning Board as they consider the proposal. The complex’s entrance is proposed for the intersection of Cedar Hill and Depot Place. We have already expressed concerns about traffic and parking affecting South Nyack and about use of the park across the street from the site. I encourage you to review the plans and give your opinion. You can comment directly to the Nyack Planning Board, or send me your comments and I’ll make sure they’re presented to Nyack. The proposal is currently scheduled for review at the Nyack Planning Board’s next meeting on Monday, January 5. The plans are available for review at South Nyack Village Hall.
As always, have a wonderful weekend!
