Last week, we introduced a new design of the Village of Nyack website.
There is still work to do to update information and ensure the website
navigation is operating correctly. A big thank you to Dave Zornow and
Jane Cowles for working on this project. The new design is still using
the structure that was developed by Doug Foster.
In keeping with the focus on our sustainability efforts, the Board
supported responses for proposals to purchase trees for replanting and to
maintain our current stock of trees throughout the Village. Marcy Denker
and the Tree Committee have done amazing work on these projects.
We are reviewing actions to move forward with major renovation work on
our aging water system. The total cost for the repair and renovation
project is close to $10 million.
The village is considering moving to replace the current parking kiosks
with upgraded versions that use license plates to monitor parking
activities. There will also be an app for payment and for extending
Safety for pedestrians and bikers continues to be a focus for the board.
We adopted a local law to lower the speed limit in designated school
zones. Other safety issues are being implemented including new signage and
designs for better traffic control near the senior center and Head Start
on Depew Ave.
Upcoming issues and events:
Your Village Board continues to study parking issues in our community.
