Update on Bus Stop Locations & Shared Use Path Design
On November 17th, I met with representatives of the NYS DOT and New NY Bridge to discuss concerns about the location of the proposed bus stop on Clinton Avenue. I asked DOT – and they agreed – to explore an alternate location, outside of a residential area. That study is ongoing and I hope to have some good news to share on this front soon.
Based on additional feedback from residents, I met yesterday with representatives from the New NY Bridge to discuss potential refinements to the Shared Use Path design.
While most residents had very favorable views of the renderings presented on November 15th at Living Christ Church, a number of residents near the trailhead at Clinton Avenue objected to some of the architectural elements. I’ve asked that the design be refined to better reflect the unique character of the Esposito Trail, while still honoring our commitments to the plan (Alternative F) we fought so hard to get.
The Board and I remain committed to working with the State to address the concerns of our residents.
Let’s keep moving forward together.
