Clarkstown Submits Community Development Requests

The town is looking for funding for projects along the same lines as those approved last year.


The Clarkstown Town Board voted to ask the Rockland County Consortium to consider projects for replacing sidewalks and entrance doors at community centers and installing pedestrian signals and detectors for Community Development Block Grant funds. The requests are similar to ones made last year when the town received $55,000.  

The board listed the acquisition of a vehicle to transport senior citizens within Clarkstown as its priority project. That was followed by a request for adding pedestrian signals and detectors including tactile arrows and locator tones at Squadron Blvd. and North Main Street in New City.  The third item dealt with the renovating sidewalks and entrance doors at community centers to comply with ADA regulations. 

At Tuesday’s meeting, the board accepted the resignation of Detective John Mahoney of New City, who retired after serving six years with the Clarkstown Police Department.

How about some money to clean the streets in the commercial areas of Clarkstown especially around Exit 8, 10 & 11 they are a disgrace for the areal we live in and the taxes we pay!!

Why are they taking on new projects when they don't have the money to pay for existing projects? They spend money we don't have and they are now in the process of spending money that our children and future taxpayers will have to pay.

basically because we allow it - story after story gets written in the news and dozens sometimes hundreds of people sit at their keyboards and complain about it - rightfully so - its OUR money - yet the average attendance at a town board meeting by the taxpayers can sometimes be counted on 2 hands..... enough is enough - gromack doesnt care about our money nor does the town board - they just voted themselves all a raise - how many residents were at that meeting..... theonly way things will change is if we SPEAK UP
