Public hearings have been scheduled for commentary on the East Parcel Development. During the community discussion held on August 10th many ideas and suggestions were raised for how the space might be developed to best fit the needs of the Sleepy Hollow Community. Many of the ideas would be great enhancements to the outdoor space in Sleepy Hollow, and some of the suggestions would have a direct impact on the Philipse Manor community.
One such suggestion was that Philipse Manor be considered for egress from the East Parcel. The suggested route was through Devries Park and onto Devries Avenue. If you have any concerns about this proposal, and how it may impact our community, I urge you to let your concerns be known during the upcoming public hearings. If you speak at the hearing or put your comments in writing to Paula McCarthy Tompkins (Village Clerk), they will go on record and must be addressed.
The dates for the three public hearings are: August 23, September 12, and September 20, 2016. The hearings are to be held at Village Hall at 7:00PM. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of your comments and letters.
The Engineer's Concept Plan can be found here. I encourage you to review the plan and to make suggestions or raise your concerns, either directly to the village or by contacting the PMIA through the website or reach out to me directly at my email (cathy.golub [at] verizon.net) with your concerns. I plan to present at one of the hearings on behalf of PMIA.
