Tuesday: Speak Up for Safe Streets

3 school aged kids have been injured by people driving in Sleepy Hollow over the past 6 months. 24 people are injured in crashes each year here. This is preventable.

May 28: Sleepy Hollow Comprehensive Plan Public Hearing

We all have 2 weeks to review the drafts of Sleepy Hollow's Comp Plan. Please read through them and let us know what you think. We'll incorporate your thoughts into our take.

Just like the earlier drafts, the "Bicycle Desire Lines" looks like the consultants drew lines on a map. (Page 135 of the new Comp Plan draft.) There's little relationship between actual origins and destinations. We asked the consultants and Village on multiple occasions to explain how they came up with this map. Crickets...

We look forward to reading the latest PDFs and updating our website in response.

Here are some of our thoughts on the earlier drafts. https://biketarrytown.org/sleepy-hollow-comprehensive-plan/

The trail linking northern Sleepy Hollow to Kendal on Hudson and Rockwood Hall has been reopened. This is great news for people walking, cycling and running near the Hudson River.

Many thanks to Phelps Hospital / Northwell Health for installing temporary fill until the permanent fix is implemented.
