STEP ONE: Mark Your Calendar – Attend this Meeting
“Make your voices heard South Nyack residents”
Date: Wednesday, March 16, 2016
Location: Nyack Middle School, 98 South Highland Ave., South Nyack
Open House: 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Public Hearing: 6:30 pm
The NYS Thruway Authority and the NYS Department of Transportation will be gathering all comments on Wednesday, March 16 about the two remaining concepts for the Shared Use Path. This pathway across the new bridge will bring many tourists to our area and now is our opportunity to save the character of our Village and our way of life.
Support Concept F:
It will provide visitor parking, bathroom facilities and walkways while keeping them away from our homes and within the interchange on NYS Thruway property.
It will discourage visitor parking on our Village streets.
It will greatly reduce traffic on our Village roads by moving the South Broadway entrance of the interchange to Route 9W.
It will ultimately save the wear and tear on our Village roads, which will save us money on resurfacing and save on taxes.
It will build a new pedestrian crossing at the south end of the Village; connecting the west side of the Village to the east side of Route 9W.
