SPECIAL DISTRICT VOTE - FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, 2021 (SNOW DATE - FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 2021)
At its regular November 17 meeting, the Nyack Public Schools Board of Education approved three resolutions related to the District's proposed purchase of a 1.1 acre site at 366 North Highland Avenue, Upper Nyack. If ultimately approved by Nyack voters in a 2021 public referendum, the parcel under consideration would provide much needed additional vehicle parking and open space for students, families and community members. There would be no impact to local taxpayers as a result of this proposed land purchase. The necessary funds ($687,500) have been set aside by the District, with no additional resources to be requested from the community. Any proposal by the District to purchase land will include a thorough environmental review (SEQRA) to assess potential environmental impacts. The vote for the purchase of the property will be held on Friday, January 22, 2021.
