Decoding Village Agendas – November 14, 2022
Work Session of the Village Board
Georgianna Grant Room
- Octoberfest/Fall Festival debrief. The Board, DPW, Police, members of the Croton Business Council, and other Upper Village merchants will discuss the recent event.
- Village Treasurer presentation on expanded reporting. Treasurer Tucker will provide an update on the Year-to-Date budget status and cash flow of the General Fund.
- Discussion on lowering speed limit minimum within Village boundaries. The Bicycle Pedestrian Committee has unanimously endorse the establishment of a 25 mph speed limit on all Village Streets where it is not otherwise prohibited by NYS Law (Albany Post road, Riverside, Route 129).
- Continued discussion on development of Gouveia Park. The Board will discuss a memo from Trustee Horowitz who has reinitiated the discussion of the future uses of the Gouveia property. She points to two groups that made proposals in 2015 and 2019 but no further action was taken. Trustee Horowitz suggests that “the Village should be working on a Master Plan for the park’s development, prepared by a site planning professional with input by the community. The Master Plan will become a dynamic instrument to balance the interests of various stakeholders against time and budget, allowing for informed, phased improvements with an eye to the whole.”
