UPDATE- ARDSLEY VILLAGE TO MAKE PRESENTATION TO TOWN BOARD ON THEIR PROPOSED HIGHWAY GARAGE NEAR AF VETERAN PARK NEXT WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT TOWN BOARD MEETING--ADDITIONAL ACCESS ONTO OLYMPIC LANE TO BE DISCUSSED
The Ardsley Board of Trustees approved the purchase of property located at 220 Heatherdell Road, just across from McDowell Park, with the intention of building a highway garage on the site.
The current highway garage sits on NYS Thruway Authority property. The DPW’s actual needs are for a garage of approximately two and a half times what is currently available, along with a salt storage barn, a fuel station, and truck and employee parking. The garage was moved to its current location in 1978 as a “temporary” site until a more suitable location could be found. The Village uses the property under permit from the NYS Thruway which could require the Village to relocate at any time. The current facility is inadequate, inefficient and in poor condition. Approximately 80% of the highway vehicles and heavy equipment are kept outdoors, which requires additional ongoing maintenance and shortens the life span of the equipment. The mechanics “bay” is greatly undersized. A safe and sanitary working facility for its employees in accordance with good labor practices is required.
For many years, the Village has sought to find a site for a new garage. The Village has reviewed the feasibility of a number of sites that have proven to be unavailable or inappropriate as a highway garage site.
