Grants
The village has received a $42,000 grant from the New NY Bridge’s Community Benefits Program which will be used to implement a paid parking program and will fund the cost of a parking consultant to assist the village in setting up this program. The village will be going out to bid shortly to find a consultant who can assist with this process.
The village has also received a grant for $163,200 from the New NY Bridge’s Waterfront Revitalization Program which will be used to refurbish the Franklin Street Park tennis court and to purchase and install a canopy that will cover the children’s playground. The structure that is being considered offers the most shade protection and will allow the Department of Public Works to remove it during the winter months. A picture of this shade structure may be found on southnyack.ny.gov.

John Green Preservation Coalition

A second board member of the non-profit group overseeing the restoration of one of Nyack’s oldest houses has resigned. In the 1800’s local businessman John Green revolutionized Rockland County’s economy. Now his former home is one of the last remaining houses in the Hudson Valley that represents original Dutch-style architecture. The John Green Preservation Coalition board, under new leadership from Historical Society of the Nyacks President Win Perry, is trying to regain its footing to continue the building’s fundraising effort and building restoration. Read all about it in The Rise and Fall of the John Green House.
