Public hearing May 20 to address restoration

ROUSES POINT - Village Mayor George A. Rivers has announced a public informational meeting will be held at the Rouses Point Civic Center, 39 Lake St., Thursday, May 20, from 7-9 p.m.

The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the proposed restoration of the former Delaware and Hudson Railway Station on Pratt Street.

The village, in cooperation with the New York State Department of Transportation, is developing design studies for the historic restoration of the station and site work. A copy of the Draft Project Scoping report/Final Design Report is available for review at the village office, located at 139 Lake St.

During the meeting, comments will be sought on the proposed project from individuals, groups, officials and local agencies on the draft report. The village is specifically soliciting comments on the development of alternatives for the project and comments on the project's social, economic and environmental effects.

The public informational meeting is part of the continuing efforts by the state Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration and village of Rouses Point to encourage public input into the development of transportation projects.

For more information about the public hearing or the proposed restoration project, contact community development consultant Melissa McManus at 297-6753. Written comments on the project may also be forwarded to McManus via e-mail at melissamcmanusllc@gmail.com.
