The Village of Tarrytown will be reimbursed $250,000 for building 167 parking spaces at the Tarrytown train station in 2011.
The funding comes from unused multi modal transportation funds that were awarded to the Village in 1999 for a separate project. New York State Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins asked for authorization to use the funds after recognizing the need for further parking at the Tarrytown train station.
“Senator Stewart-Cousins provided us with the type of leadership our residents have come to expect from her,” said Tarrytown Mayor Drew Fixell, in a press release. “She recognized that this was a project that benefited not only Tarrytown, but the many other residents of the region who both utilize Metro-North and visit our wonderful waterfront parks.”
