Decoding Village Agendas – January 22, 2018
Work Session of the Village Board
7: 30 p.m.
(Open to Public and Televised)
- Review of Part 2 of the Long Form Environmental Assessment Form as part of the Village Board’s environmental review of the special permit request to construct a new building at 25 South Riverside Avenue including 3 stories with parking on the first story and 26 apartment units. This continues the environmental assessment that the Board is required to do when considering a special permit. This application is for a new building, as described, at the location of the former Croton Hardware store. It was scheduled to be done at the Board meeting of January 16 but members had received the wrong EAF form. It was postponed to this work session.
- Staff update on capital and other projects The DPW Superintendent Frank Balbi and Village Engineer Dan O’Connor will review current and anticipated capital projects. The Board will also consider planning and administrative goals, recreation plans, and possible grant opportunities.
- Proposal from CHA for engineering design services in the amount of $260,000 for the next phase of the Croton Point Avenue improvement project including permitting, right of way acquisition, detailed engineering plans and specifications, and bidding assistance. This enables CHA to bring the design documents to their final stage and proceed with permitting requirements in anticipation of the project being undertaken during the 2019 building season.
- Request by the Village Manager to enter into an executive session to discuss an item regarding potential litigation. If the request is granted an executive session will be held
