“We have a reputation as a walkable village. We are also a popular cycling destination,” said Nyack Mayor Jen White. But that doesn’t mean it’s so easy to get around the Nyacks without a car. Transportation design firm Fitzgerald & Halliday will work with the Nyack villages to design a 21st-century bicycle / pedestrian transportation network to improve connections between popular destinations in the Nyacks, for school children and for visitors to the villages.
“Nyack Schools is excited about partnering with the Nyack river villages to make it easier and safer for our students to walk or bicycle in our community,” said Nyack Schools Board of Education President Karen Hughes. “Walking and riding a bicycle to school offers health, environmental and social benefits to our students, which will benefit everyone in the school district.”
