Moving Ahead: Village Pushes for SUP Control

Within a few days DEC Commissioner Joseph Martens will receive South Nyack’s request to be appointed lead agency for the shared use path.

Dear Mr. Martens:

The New York State Thruway Authority (NYSTA) has apparently initiated an action that is likely to generate significant impacts upon the Village of South Nyack.

Not quite. The village wanted the terminus moved, remember?

After nixing the state’s plan to end the path at Smith Avenue, the mayor decided — and the task force agreed — Cornelison Avenue and South Broadway was a better choice. “They (trustees) thought the idea — keeping cars off village streets while maintaining the character and integrity of the historic village — was plausible.”

That’s old news.

Re his and Deputy Director of State Operations for Programs Joseph Rabito’s meeting with the mayor and task force member Richard Kohlhausen, Thruway Acting Executive Director Bob Megna said:

“With new leadership at the Thruway Authority, we wanted to sit down with Mayor Christian in order to better understand the issues affecting her community. It was a constructive meeting and we look forward to working together for the benefit of the taxpayers of New York and the residents of South Nyack.”

Here’s the breakdown of shared use path expenses. Note: The public can continue submitting comments about the parking concepts.

More will be revealed.

I’d like to know what you think.
