At a meeting with the representatives from the New NY Bridge Team, last Thursday, November 20, 2014, members of the Tappan Zee Bridge Task Force and I learned that the terminus of the Shared Use Path (SUP) will be at the corner of South Broadway and Cornelison because using Interchange 10 for the terminus is not practical and is too expensive. I am outraged that this appears to have been decided without an opportunity for the residents of South Nyack and our elected representatives to review other options for the terminus of the SUP as promised for so many months by both the New NY Bridge Team and state representatives. Last March there was a public meeting where the proposal to locate the terminus at Cornelison and South Broadway was thoroughly reviewed. Many residents expressed concerns about the levels of vehicle, bike, and pedestrian traffic which would lead to an increased demand for parking, adversely impacting the quality of life, and compromising safety at a busy intersection that includes the entrance ramp onto the Tappan Zee Bridge. Following the March meeting, members of the Task Force and I immediately began to press for a full review of other options for the terminus. Numerous suggestions from residents had been submitted to the New NY Bridge Team with the promise of reviewing them at a public meeting. An overview of these proposals had been presented to the Task Force in early October at which time we were told that they needed to be further developed before being shared at a public meeting. After waiting for months, and being told that all options were being considered, we were told on November 20th that the Shared Use Path would end at Cornelison and South Broadway. At a follow up meeting the Task Force members were unanimous in being as outraged as I was at this news. We decided that that we must meet with New York State officials to demand a full review of other options". This morning I have contacted Governor Cuomo's office to schedule a meeting. We must go to Albany and fight for the safety and welfare of South Nyack. I will hold a press conference in front of South Nyack Village Hall on Tuesday, November 25 at 2:00pm.
