The meeting on Monday, September 23rd at 8:00 pm Greenville School, is the opportunity for interested residents to learn about the study and draft conclusions of Provident Design Engineers, the traffic consultants contracted by the Town to review current conditions at the Fort Hill Road / Ardsley Road intersection.
The Town heard of concerns relating to the ineffective 4-way stop signs for traffic control from residents of the Southern Greenville Association in early 2017 and the request of the SGCA for the Town to consider improvements for pedestrian safety. In June of 2018, Town Officials, including Chief of Police and Public Works Commissioner, met with representatives of the SGCA and heard further requests for actions to improve the functionality and safety of the Fort Hill Road / Ardsley Road intersection. Over the summer of 2018, the Town engineering staff discussed possible solutions and offered a possible budget for inclusion with the Town 2019 Capital program. The requested funding was approved in the 2019 Capital Improvement Plan for safety improvements. With further communications with the SGCA, the Town engineering issued a Request for Proposals to traffic consulting engineers to review the intersection and develop options for safety improvements. The SGCA was involved in the selection process, choosing to accept the recommendations of the Town Engineer for the consultant. In April, 2019 the consultant met with the SGCA and presented their proposal and firms’ qualifications. With the positive feedback from the meeting, the Town Supervisor did authorize a contract with Provident Design Engineers (PDE) to study the intersection and develop solutions for safety improvements.
In July, PDE submitted a draft report to the Town. Now that the summer is over, PDE is prepared to present the draft report to the SGCA for review and to receive feedback to their work. Moving ahead, the Town and PDE will further amend the draft report based upon feedback from the SGCA and Town engineering staff, leading to a final report to the Town and the SGCA for acceptance.
UPDATE SIDEWALK WORK ON GLENDALE
As you probably know, the sidewalk on Glendale near the school is not finished. We have hired a contractor to repave and mill the road. Should take place within the next few weeks. We had to increase the elevation of the road. Sidewalks have to be made ADA compliant and also had to reset the curbs. Although the road doesn’t look great now, when the work is complete both the sidewalk and road conditions it will look very nice. Some residents with small children had previously complained about the poor condition of the sidewalk- resulting in the sidewalk restoration.
PUBLIC HEARING SEPTEMBER 25TH AFTER 7:30 PM TO REMOVE UNSTABLE STRUCTURES AT 100 HIGHPOINT
Over the years the Building Department has periodically recommended to the Town Board that we remove unstable structures. There is an unstable and unsafe structure at 100 Highpoint Road. It’s also an eyesore. By law – before we hire a contractor to remove the structures we have to hold a public hearing. The hearing will be held at the next Town Board meeting on September 25th.
