Public Hearings about Shared Use Path this Month
Besides longer days — we move the clocks ahead one hour in less than two weeks — the Ides of March and St. Patrick’s Day, March brings public hearings about the shared use path’s parking and connections in Nyack and Tarrytown. Diagrams here are credited to the New York State Thruway Authority.
South Nyack residents scored a major victory nearly one year ago, when — after standing their ground against the state and the Thruway Authority — the shared use path terminus was moved away from its streets.
The 54 parking spaces Rockland needs per a parking demand study can potentially be on existing Thruway Authority property at Exit 10. Westchester’s 97 parking spaces can be accommodated on the site of the former state police barracks.
Using its $250,000 grant from the project’s Community Benefits Program, South Nyack hired consultants to study the feasibility of redesigning and redeveloping the exit; here are their ideas.
Interesting that the Environmental Assessment (pdf file will download) of various parking options refers to the New NY Bridge project by its earlier-known name, the Tappan Zee Hudson River Crossing Project. Now’s your chance to speak up!
I’d like to know what you think.
