IN PROGRESS


Broadway Transportation Alternatives Project

The reconstruction of North and South Broadway is entering the final design phase of the project. The project will replace sidewalks, curbing, street lighting and other amenities along the roadway from Cedar Hill Avenue to the northern border. This is a $3.1 million project funded with grants totaling $2.32 million.

 

Water Infrastructure Initiative

The Village Board has authorized the borrowing of $2.3 million for the Water Department to begin a multi-year water main and valve replacement project beginning in 2019. We are exploring grant options to offset the cost of the project.

 

Depew Avenue

The Village is making numerous safety improvements on Depew Ave for Head Start, the Senior Center and residential housing including: upgraded signage, lower speed limit, and a CDBG grant to install a raised crosswalk (crosswalk 2019). Intermunicipal agreements on recycling, public works, and potential collaboration on garbage pick-up and parking.

 

Progress on Sustainability Initiative :

  • Contract on new LED streetlights – lights purchased from O&R

  • Ban the Bag” initiative with Nyack High School
