1) Tonight is the Sleepy Hollow board meeting and public hearing at Kendal on Hudson. In addition to getting the chance to weigh in on agenda items like the proposed renovations of Kendal and the ongoing issue of gate access of Birch Close, this is likely the last chance for the public to weigh in on Capital Budget items on the line. One item at risk: whether the village will allocate funds to repair the sinking bulkhead at our RiverWalk in front of Ichabod's Landing or not.
According to Trustee Susan MacFarlane this means years of bad news for this prime patch of once-accessible riverfront. "The RiverWalk will continue to be condemned, fenced off from use, and the bulkhead will continue to leak out fill into the Hudson, causing debris to fall into the river and more sinkholes to develop on land," she said. "If no funding is allocated during this capital budget, because the project needs to be undertaken during the warmer half of the year, most likely it won't be able to be repaired until 2015, at earliest."
