Red Hook Responds/ COVID-19 Links/Village Hall Closed

Red Hook Responds

The Town and Villages are helping to support a community based effort called Red Hook Responds to assist our neighbors in need and to solicit individuals who may want to help.

A website called   http://www.redhookresponds.org   and a volunteer/help hotline number (845-640-4788) have been established to further those objectives. By sharing this information we hope to be able to reach as many folks as possible, to do what we do best: help each other.

COVID-19 Alert Links

 

Village Hall is closed until further notice

In the interest of public health in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic Village Hall will be closed to the public starting Wednesday, March 25th and continuing until further notice.

Village Services will continue but to minimize person-to-person contact we believe no one except Village personnel should be using the building. Even our employees will only be performing essential work and  be working at different hours and maintaining social distance as they do. Any of their work which can be conducted from home will be. All municipalities are compelled by the Governor’s Executive Order to do so.

Garbage and recycling pick-up will continue on Tuesdays as normal.

To purchase garbage tags please send a check and a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

The Village of Tivoli

Garbage tags are $4 each.

P & B Properties
The Area Variances were present to the Zoning Board of Appeals in order to renovate an existing building and discuss parking. The property lies in the RB district and the structure is on .91 acre; not a full acre as would be required. Parking should be to the rear of the building, however, a variance is sought as this is not possible.

Laura Gail Tyler read from the Code book in order to confirm regulations.

The issues were stated once again as acreage/density, and parking not being to the rear due to
property lines.

Four explanations for variances were presented:

  1. Negative effect on the character of the neighborhood
  2. Alternatives
  3. Negative environmental impact
  4. Self-created

Laura Gail Tyler indicated this to be a Type II action and does not require SEQR.

The variances were accepted as Associative Variances. Both variances will be considered one application, and one fee will be submitted, per Laura Gail Tyler.

Laura Gail Tyler reviewed the questions and provided suggestions for appropriate
completion.

Laura Gail Tyler discussed the code for parking.

Trustee Ezrati discussed the traffic study and indicated the Safety Revision Plan would be
helpful for all to review.

Foot traffic was discussed, along with the potential for traffic calming in the future with the
study.

On maps provided a septic and trees are shown as already existing.
