Infrastructure Improvements

  • Roads will be privately owned and maintained, creating no burden to taxpayers.
  • A number of safety improvements to local roads are proposed, including:
    • Creating a safer intersection at Woodward Hill Road and Route 199
    • Adding a roundabout at the intersection of Woodward Hill Road and West Shore Drive for traffic calming
    • Constructing a safer condition where Ferris Lane intersects the Taconic State Parkway.
  • New central water supply and wastewater treatment facilities will be proposed to serve the Project’s needs. The project will not draw water from the Pine Plains Hamlet aquifer. It is proposed that the Lake Carvel dam be replaced and a new dam constructed 550 feet north of the current dam site.
