ADA Intersection Project
Removal and Replacement of trees at the intersection of Franklin Ave. and Church Ave.
Five trees will be removed from the intersection of Franklin Ave. and Church Ave. this fall. This is all part of the effort to make the intersection ADA compliant by redoing the sidewalks in front of Millbrook Deli, McLaughlin’s, Forza Fitness and Trattoria San Giorgio Restaurant. The funding for this project is largely due to a grant – Community Development Block Grant – awarded in 2016. Four trees will replace those removed in the spring of 2018 with funds from private donors. The type of trees and method of planting will be given careful consideration to avoid heaving. A new tree – a gingko – has been donated and is being planted in front of George T. Whalen Real Estate at the beginning of October but is not a part of the ADA project.
If there are any questions/concerns please attend a Board of Trustees meeting – 6:30pm the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
Well Drilling Update:
The long awaited bedrock well drilling, one of the alternative solutions to resolving the GWUDI issue is seeing some progress---reaching a final depth of 700 feet the well is producing 160 plus gallons per minute. As Mark, the owner of Northern Drilling, said “this is a great well, nice clear water.” The first well is a ‘test well’ to determine quantity and quality. If quality is determined to be acceptable by the Dutchess County Health Department (DCHD), the well will become a production well and the quantity that the well produces will determine if we drill one or two more wells. If the Village is able to go to a bedrock well system (preferred by DCHD) we plan on keeping the existing infiltration system with its function to be determined at a future date. Follow along with pictures and updates on the Village websites projects tab.
