Identify the Problem Spots

Bet you know several places in town that are dangerous for walking. Tell Livable Tarrytowns about them. They're collating them and will use everyone's reports to press Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow to fix them.


Do it on (or before) Tuesday, November 7.


Tarrytown's Mayor and half of the Board of Trustee are up for election. There are stark differences between the slate of candidates seeking re-election and the slate challenging them.

The current Mayor (Karen Brown) and three current Trustees (David Kim, Becky McGovern, and Effie Phillips-Staley) have taken steps to improve traffic safety (for example: supporting the Route 9 Complete Streets project, lowering speed limits) and provide more housing (allowing some Accessory Dwelling Units). Of course, much more needs to be done, and this team is heading in the right direction.

The challengers want to keep everything the same -- traffic safety problems and housing crisis be damned.

This Hudson Independent article quickly shows the differences:

Leadership seats for the Town of Mount Pleasant, of which Sleepy Hollow is a part, are up for election too. The current Supervisor and Council members have done little for Sleepy Hollow. Challengers Frank Hrotko, Joe Bonnano, and Charlie Caspari want to change that. | | T: @BikeTarrytown | F: @BikeTarrytn
