Under the chairmanship of Led Klosky, the Comprehensive Plan Committee includes Mary Aspin, Dominic Cordisco, Bill Grisoli and Lorraine McGuinness. They met more than 30 times over the course of three years, meeting with village department supervisors and others. In its final phase, the committee benefitted from the expertise of Kristen O’Donnell, a planner with Lanc & Tully; Mayor Brendan Coyne secured a grant to pay half of the planner’s fee.
As with many events in 2020, COVID-19 prevented the committee from finalizing its draft earlier this year. The committee held a public meeting Nov. 12.

A Public Hearing will be held December 14.

ALBANY – Cashless tolling will go live on the New York State Thruway’s ticketed system during the overnight hours of Friday, November 13, into Saturday, November 14. The conversion will take place simultaneously at 58 tolling locations across the Thruway’s 450-mile ticketed system. 

The official switch will take place in the overnight hours to limit the impact on traffic. At the time cashless tolling goes live, cash will no longer be accepted as a form of payment at toll booths and printed toll tickets will not be handed out. 

To support this transition, NY E-ZPass has released a new TollsNY mobile app to help drivers manage E-ZPass accounts, find and pay Tolls by Mail invoices, and get important account alerts for tolls accrued at Thruway, MTA, and Port Authority tolling sites.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said the project will save time for motorists, as well as reduce traffic, cut greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality along the Thruway. 

“Cashless tolling is already improving traffic flow, allowing motorists to get to their destinations easier and quicker without having to stop to pay a toll,” said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. “Less idling also complements our clean energy goals, reducing pollution for a cleaner and greener environment. We encourage all drivers to get an E-ZPass across the state, with a new mobile app to help manage accounts and alerts to make it easier for New Yorkers.”

Dear Village Folks:

The Village’s Comprehensive Plan Committee has been working on its plan for more than two years and is holding a public meeting at 7 p.m., Thursday, November 12, at the Storm King Engine firehouse to share its latest draft.

The committee welcomes discussion with Village residents and other interested parties regarding the plan. The plan has progressed considerably and a draft can be found on the Village website HERE. The purpose of a comprehensive plan is to provide guidance for land use and improvements in the Village.

Due to the pandemic, occupancy at the meeting is limited to 50 persons and masks and social distancing are required for public safety. We do not anticipate a capacity problem at this gathering but we do ask for everyone’s cooperation as we continue to work to protect everyone’s health.

I am grateful to our hard-working committee, chaired by Led Klosky. The members are Mary Aspin, Dominic Cordisco, William Grisoli and Lorraine McGuinness.

Hope to see you there.

Sincerely,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department recently received a traffic enforcement grant from the NYS Governor' s Traffic Safety Committee, as part of this enforcement grant Cornwall-on­ Hudson PD will be participating in the New York State Governor's Traffic Safety Committee's, Distracted Driving Initiative, between October 08, 2020 thru October 12, 2020. Cornwall-on­ Hudson PD officers will be on assigned patrols looking for violators who are utilizing their cell phone while operating a motor- vehicle.

What is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system - anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.

Texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.

You cannot drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing.

Consequences of Distracted Driving?

Using a cell phone while driving creates enormous potential for deaths and injuries on U.S.

roads. In 2018 alone, 2,841people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers. Among those killed were: 1,730 drivers, 605 passengers, 400 pedestrians and 77 bicyclists.
