The first part of the meeting included a presentation called "Broadway for All: The Route 9 Active Transportation Conceptual Plan". We learned about a collaborative five-village consortium of Irvington, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings-on-Hudson, Sleepy Hollow, and Tarrytown that is working to create a modern and green corridor with bike lanes, safer crossings and expanded sidewalks. Bike paths can be used by people of all ages. The plan represents and opportunity to improve student safety for school journey and reduce school drop off traffic. Seniors and handicapped people would benefit from safer and easier pathways while monitor vehicles move efficiently and safely too. Conceptual design can be viewed at route9active.org (see the final report). We are happy to report that the Irvington Board of Trustees approved a resolution to continue to move forward on the Route 9 Corridor initiative with the surrounding Rivertowns.
