[ARCHIVED] Town Bd to briefly discuss safety improvement plans for E Hartsdale Ave at 5 PM

We had received a grant from NYS to implement improvements on E Hartsdale Ave a year ago and plan a community meeting in late September or early October

After the tragic passing of Stephanie Kavourias  on E Hartsdale Ave this Saturday I have received numerous e mails and phone calls from residents of E Hartsdale Ave and surrounding neighborhoods asking for safety concerns to be addressed. At the Greenburgh Town Board meeting this afternoon at 5 PM we will briefly discuss some planned initiatives and action steps the town can pursue going forward. We had received a $5 million dollar grant last year from Senator Cousins office to build a sidewalk on W Hartsdale Ave and to make safety improvements on E Hartsdale Ave. We plan a major community meeting with our consultants to discuss the initiatives under consideration and a time table for implementation in about a month. 


Some residents have asked that we install speed camera's on E Hartsdale Ave. Speed camera's are authorized in NYC and in other cities around NYS but not in towns. I believe that the town should ask the New York State Legislature to approve a home rule message that would authorize the town to place speed camera's on E Hartsdale Ave and in other busy streets around town. If motorists believe that there is a better chance that they will be caught speeding-and that they will be fined, it could slow down motorists.


The meeting this afternoon will be televised on public access TV and will be brief.  The important meeting for the community to show up will be later on -when our consultant can present the options/plans and solicit feedback and answer questions.


East-West Hartsdale Avenue Transportation Improvements – Town staff, working directly with Engineering Consultant Barton & Loguidice, are actively implementing a $5,000,000 Transportation Alternatives Program. This NYSDOT-administered Federal Program will result in a project that will include (1) an approximately 6,000 linear ft. new sidewalk and drainage infrastructure along West Hartsdale Avenue from Central Park Avenue (at Four Corners) north to Pat Capone Road; (2) updated signalization via an Adaptive Traffic Control System (ATCS) along East Hartsdale Avenue; and (3) pedestrian safety enhancements along East Hartsdale Avenue, from Four Corners to the Hartsdale Train Station.

 

In late September or early October this year, a presentation of the project and outreach meeting to the public will be held, time and date forthcoming. . The 2025 Construction season is the planned start date for this project. The improvements to be presented build on the infrastructure planning prepared for the Town by AKRF undertaken 2020 – 2022.
