Don't Pave Over Village Hall: South Nyack Residents

South Nyack residents don't want to raze Village Hall and put up a parking lot. 

The March 20 meeting at Nyack College drew lots of residents but little support for one proposal to create parking on the site of Village Hall for the terminus of the bicycle/pedestrian path coming off the new bridge. 

According to news reports, people preferred having Interchange 10 redesigned, with parking located there.

On the west side of the Hudson River, plans are now being considered to turn the state police barracks into a parking lot and rest area for pedestrians and cyclists.

Has anyone suggested a referendum vote?

How is this a "slap in the face?" The village hall is a house.. the police dept works in the attic. If the state wants the land, perhaps the village can be compensated with another building that is more appropriate to their mission. I had heard that the village had once looked at the old telephone company building further north on Broadway, and there was a proposal to build something on the old ice house property too. If they are going to have a walkway or bike lane on the bridge, parking would be needed somewhere close.. (the old ice house property would be ok too.. right by the Esposito rail trail). Bottom line, this could actually benefit the people of South Nyack as they get a better facility. I agree however that the thruway authority does not care about either side of the river.. they never have... And just wait til Andy Boy Jr, names the bridge after his father.
