Intersection needs a light
The Town supervisor is emphatic in describing the need for a traffic light on Route 94 at Jackson. “It’s the most dangerous intersection in Cornwall,” Richard Randazzo claims.
He maintains that people trying to turn off Jackson Avenue have a problem. “94 at that point is an ‘S’ curve,” he says. “There’s an issue with depth perception. You can’t tell how far away a vehicle is or how fast it’s going.”
The Bethlehem Presbyterian Church is at the northwest corner of the intersection. On July 14, a truck crashed into the church’s electric sign after trying to avoid a passenger car. Page 1A
Planning Board OKs home yoga studio
On Tuesday night, the Cornwall-on-Hudson Planning Board granted conditional approval allowing Kelly Yarpezeshkan to open a yoga studio in her Riverside Drive home. The existing space was previously used as a doctor’s office.
A public hearing, held last month, drew a crowd of neighbors and other village residents, some of whom spoke against the application citing use of the home as a commercial enterprise and additional traffic on Grandview Avenue and Riverside Drive as concerns. Page 1A
Gravel runoff an issue for resident
During the public comment period of Monday night’s Cornwall-on-Hudson Board of Trustees meeting, Dave Goldfarb spoke about wheelbarrows full of gravel collecting in front of his driveway. He said several neighbors have gravel driveways and after a heavy rain, water washes away the small stones which end up at the foot of his driveway. In the past, the DPW had used the street sweeper to clear the pile-up, but Goldfarb said he was recently informed this would not continue due to liability concerns. Page 1A
