POUND RIDGE, N.Y. -- Members of the public will have a chance to learn about the status of the proposed overhaul plan for Scotts Corners during a special Pound Ridge Town Board meeting set for later this month.
The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 28 at 7 p.m.
The project calls for making changes to the streetscapes of the downtown to make it friendlier to pedestrians and bicyclists. A previous iteration, unveiled in May, showed new sidewalks and bump outs along Westchester Avenue, which would be narrowed in one section to help slow down vehicular traffic.
The plan will be funded through an initiative called the Transportation Enhancement Program (TEP), in which federal funds held by the state would be distributed to the town. Under TEP, the state would disburse $1,485,000 to Pound Ridge, while the town would be responsible for a match of $370,000.
Councilwoman Ali Boak told Daily Voice that work is being done to create a finalized concept plan, which would be submitted to the state Department of Transportation (DOT).
"We expect to have a finalized concept plan in time for this public info meeting," Boak added.
The submission to the DOT is called a Design Approval Document, according to a town announcement. The next steps would include needing DOT approval and then putting the project out the bid, the announcement adds.
