Tarrytown Gets Grant for Train Station

The Village of Tarrytown will be reimbursed $250,000 for building 167 parking spaces at the Tarrytown train station in 2011.

“The Tarrytown train station desperately needed these parking spaces and this funding will reimburse the Village for that critical project,” said New York State Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins, the Democratic Conference leader, in a press release. “The new parking lot provides a convenient service to Metro North commuters and users of nearby parks while generating revenue for the Village. I was more than happy to help Tarrytown obtain this grant so more parking is available at the train station."

The funding comes from unused multi modal transportation funds that were awarded to the Village in 1999 for a separate project. New York State Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins asked for authorization to use the funds after recognizing the need for further parking at the Tarrytown train station.

“Senator Stewart-Cousins provided us with the type of leadership our residents have come to expect from her,” said Tarrytown Mayor Drew Fixell, in a press release. “She recognized that this was a project that benefited not only Tarrytown, but the many other residents of the region who both utilize Metro-North and visit our wonderful waterfront parks.”

Too bad they actually reduced the parking and still seem to have had a lot of the lot closed. Although the weather is lovely early in the AM, I never see anyone on the tennis courts... Are they even open?

The parking spaces never seem to be full so far anyway.

Sounds like the Village perpetrated a fraud by eliminating more spaces in one area and merely replacing fewer of them in another location. No spaces were added. Who is responsible for this misinformation making its way of the food chain of government without conducting due diligence to determine its accuracy?
