Letters

Writer’s reply to the letter to the editor:

Our April edition of the River Journal published a letter by Daniel Rush of Irvington, regarding my article about charter schools. I am responding simply to clear up some misinformation.  Mr. Rush claims that we have no “charter schools” in our area, but that is not the case.

Letter to the Editor: What Should Be? Ossining’s New Downtown Development Committee

If this new committee does not put the redesign of Route 9 and the need for alternatives to the personal vehicle at the top of its agenda, it is not seriously dealing with the fundamental roadblocks to a successful future for this historic village.

Letter to the Editor RE: Ossining Roundabout

The Greater Ossining Chamber of Commerce and Local Ossining Businesses urge your support for a public referendum opposing the Roundabout project at the Historic Five Corners – Main & Spring Streets, and $500,000 taxpayer-funded bond passed by the Ossining Village Board on February 1, 2017.  Please sign the referendum petition and help stop this project.  2,500 signatures are needed.

This referendum will bring the proposed $500,000 taxpayer-funded bond to a vote by the registered voters of Ossining Village. There are other ways to update this aging intersection while maintaining its historic integrity, enriching local business, encouraging foot traffic, and reducing vehicle traffic.

Let the people decide!

Letters to the Editor - Recycling in Sleepy Hollow

I saw that residents of the County were asked to recycle plastics #1 through #7, and I have been putting all numbered plastics in my recycling bin for the last three years.

From the Village website I recently learned that Sleepy Hollow recycles only #1 and #2 plastics. I also found out that, as of June 1, 2011, the County mandated the addition of recycling of plastics #3 through #7 to the original standard of recycling #1 and #2.

Letters to the Editor - Sleepy Hollow LDC Responds

To the Editor,

Thank you for the opportunity to respond to recently published comments regarding the redevelopment of the “East Parcel” of the former General Motors assembly plant in Sleepy Hollow.

As Lead Agency in this matter, the Sleepy Hollow Local Development Corporation (SHLDC) will include and respond to all public comments made or submitted during the Public Hearings as part of a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) on this project.  That is the appropriate forum to analyze and discuss these matters in detail and we expect to publish that document within the next ninety days or so.  However, we would like to share the following overview to better inform the public.
