Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown and the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns Win Grant for Safer Streets
The Village of Sleepy Hollow, the Village of Tarrytown and, the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns have been awarded a $340,000 grant to create a Safe Streets and Roads for All Action Plan. The planning grant funds from the Department of Transportation were only awarded to four communities in the State of New York.
The grant funding will contribute to the development of a comprehensive safety action plan to establish a holistic strategy to prevent roadway fatalities and serious injuries across the School District of the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns. The planning process will include data-driven safety analysis of streets and roadways in both Villages, robust community engagement to identify and prioritize risk areas, assessment of current policies and procedures and recommendations for improvement, project selections, and conceptual plans for the highest priority projects. The Villages and the School District expect to reach out to the community to get involved in the process in 2024.
The collaboration between the Village of Sleepy Hollow, Village of Tarrytown and, the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns was a critical element in the grant application given the shared network of streets and public amenities between the communities. Pedestrian safety has been and continues to be a priority for all three Boards.
