February 24, 2024 Update: Important Events

Pull up your calendar and get ready to write. SEVERAL important things are happening between now and March 19. Shown in priority order.

TODAY 2/24: Traffic Safety Survey Results Review

Livable Tarrytowns asked the public to identify locations with traffic safety problems. This meeting will cover what people said and come up with priorities to move forward on.

Saturday, February 24
2:00 pm
Warner Library, 2nd Floor, Room B

3/7: Tell the State How to Make Broadway Safe

All hands on deck to insist Broadway be made safe for everybody.

Thursday, March 7th
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Tarrytown Recreation Center
240 W. Main Street, Tarrytown

That meeting is the first Public Workshop for the Route 9 Complete Streets Preliminary Engineering project, run by the State Department of Transportation (DOT). Then we head to the after-party at:

8:15-ish pm to 9:00-ish pm
Beekman Ale House
92 Beekman, Sleepy Hollow
(Everyone welcome)

At this workshop, tell the team what safety problems you experience on Brodway and what would make you feel safe using this crucial corridor. The number one talking point we hope everyone delivers is "the DOT needs to use international best practices."

(FYI, the DOT / consultants try to brush that off, saying that they "have to follow American standards." In reality, Dutch road designs fit within the engineering guidelines used in the USA.)

Here's what international best practices look like: https://biketarrytown.org/presentations/route-9-complete-streets_make-it-great_dot_2023-06-20.pdf

3/5 (and more): Palisades Path Input
