Nyack, Oct 3, 2017 — The Village of Nyack has received a grant to create a “Greater Nyack Bike/Walk Master Plan” for the Nyack School district and the three Nyack river villages. The village has received a number of responses to its RFP for this project. Community members are invited to join a committee to help select a vendor and provide input to the chosen consultant once the project gets under way. The goal of this plan is to improve safety and create better connections:
- between neighborhoods and local destinations (downtown, Nyack Beach State Park, Palisades Center, public transportation, etc) for walking and cycling.
- to best manage the increased foot and cycling traffic that will occur after the new Mario M Cuomo Tappan Zee Bridge Shared Use Path opens for joggers, walkers, cyclists and tourists in 2018.
- for students and parents to get to and from Nyack Schools.
Committee members will be invited to attend presentations from each of the vendor finalists in early November, 2017.
Residency or employment in the school district or Nyack river villages is not required to be a committee member. A final vendor recommendation for this project will be made to the Nyack Village Board by a steering committee of people who work or live in one of the villages or hamlets covered by the Nyack School district: the Village of Nyack, the Village of Upper Nyack, the Village of South Nyack, or the hamlets of Valley Cottage and Upper Grandview.
