Village of Upper Nyack
The village has purchased the property at 626 N Broadway for municipal use and the enjoyment of residents. But in the short run access to the property is restricted for safety reasons. There are some unsafe conditions that must be addressed, and there is rubbish that must be removed. The Village DPW will perform clean up and property maintenance in coming months. There will be frequent community meetings to collaborate on ideas for the property. The next one will be in September. Accompanied walks through the property will be scheduled on a regular basis, so that residents can safely visit. Check www.UpperNyack-ny.us for dates and times.
