The Green Infrastructure Committee initiated a process called a Roundtable at a public kickoff meeting in September 2012 , which provided an opportunity for participants to voice interests and concerns related to the existing procedures and conditions related to stormwater and water quality, and to join the Roundtable as committee members. The committees researched codes and initiatives in other communities and developed a set of proposals for revisions to the code, projects and initiatives to promote new green infrastructure and protect Nyack”s existing natural resources.
The final report was presented to the Village Board on June 27, 2013. The report is being circulated this summer for comments on the recommendations,and the Village Planner will prepare recommendations for prioritizing recommended actions. The Green Infrastructure Committee and key stakeholders and Village staff will meet in early September to establish a goals and a timeline for implementation.
