Guess what happens in 27 days?

We move the clocks, and to me, that means winter is almost done because spring technically starts 12 days later. Wishful thinking.

And that means warm weather, longer days, boating and swimming, and . . . in the midst of this snowy trap, it sounds too good to be true.

Nyack Mayor Jen White’s recent 2015 State of the Village Message detailed changes, improvements and happenings, including last summer’s groundbreaking for the new 90-foot long fishing pier in Memorial Park, site of the Rockland viewing area, and how one of the project’s lead engineers aided this endeavor.

Final contracts were recently awarded, White said. The deck is expected to begin soon, and the fishing pier is expected to be completed this spring.

And with an eye to this week’s deadline, the mayor wrote:

“We recommend that all Nyack residents look at the parking alternatives being recommended for the Shared Use Path (aka SUP, for those who have wondered what an SUP is) on the new bridge. Nyack figures into some of them as a potential location for parking for those on bicycles.”

Friday’s update from project officials said the bridge builder included a two-month shutdown for inclement weather, and that limited operations will continue this week.

I’d like to know what you think.
