Nyack, Oct 3, 2017 — The Village of Nyack has received a grant to create a “Greater Nyack Bike/Walk Master Plan” for the Nyack Schools 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 this 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.
