City Council votes to keep Abernathy Park baseball field https://garysinghforcitycouncil.com/city-council-votes-to-keep-abernathy-park-baseball-field/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 02:10:22 +0000 https://garysinghforcitycouncil.com/city-council-votes-to-keep-abernathy-park-baseball-field/ HUNTERSVILLE, NC (QUEEN CITY NEWS) – The Huntersville City Council has voted not to remove the baseball diamond from Abernathy Park, despite the Parks and Recreation Commission’s proposal.

HUNTERSVILLE, NC (QUEEN CITY NEWS) – The Huntersville City Council has voted not to remove the baseball diamond from Abernathy Park, despite the Parks and Recreation Commission’s proposal.

In August, the city held a public feedback session for people to give their thoughts on improvements to the park.

Twenty people were in attendance and, according to park and recreation manager Michael Jaycocks, everyone agreed that their main goal was to move the playground and basketball court away from the road where they currently sit.

Jaycocks says they would have to remove the baseball field to achieve that goal.

“At that time, the idea was that it would be an open grass field with walking paths around it, and the basketball court and the playing field would go into the outfield,” he said.

During a presentation to city council on Monday, Jaycocks said attendees of the public consultation session complained about traffic, dust and light pollution at the baseball field. He said everyone was in favor of removing it.

But when it came time to approve the new plan, the city council voted to send it back to the parks and recreation committee, not wanting to eliminate the baseball diamond due to the growing demand for ball diamond space.

“Our youngest softball division, we had between four and six teams. But last spring we had eight,” LKN Little League President Rob Johnston said, citing the historic growth of youth softball.

LKN Little League serves up to 2,400 children each year.

Johnston says they use every court available to them, including Abernathy Park, almost every weeknight.

“We have to close divisions every year, and we can’t always take all the entries just because we don’t have the fields,” Johnston said.

Now the Parks and Recreation Commission will go back to the drawing board to develop a way to revitalize the park and improve its safety while retaining the ball diamond.

Ulster City Council approves funding for Route 28 pedestrian crossing design near planned housing project – Daily Freeman https://garysinghforcitycouncil.com/ulster-city-council-approves-funding-for-route-28-pedestrian-crossing-design-near-planned-housing-project-daily-freeman/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 16:04:23 +0000 https://garysinghforcitycouncil.com/ulster-city-council-approves-funding-for-route-28-pedestrian-crossing-design-near-planned-housing-project-daily-freeman/ CITY OF ULSTER, NY – Members of City Council have approved a contribution of up to $10,000 toward engineering costs needed to design a pedestrian crossing on State Route 28 at the light near the housing project proposed by RUPCO in the former Quality Inn.

CITY OF ULSTER, NY – Members of City Council have approved a contribution of up to $10,000 toward engineering costs needed to design a pedestrian crossing on State Route 28 at the light near the housing project proposed by RUPCO in the former Quality Inn.

Supervisor James Quigley said the crosswalk could be the first step for sidewalks to extend from the end of Washington Avenue. This project would require going around the traffic circle and crossing the State Thruway Bridge where State Route 28 begins.

“The problem is that it’s a crosswalk that goes nowhere…until they can get (the State Department of Transportation) to implement a widening project pavement or a paving marking project, which would include a pedestrian lane,” he said. “You basically throw people across the road onto the shoulder.”

Under the resolution, officials would pay the Creighton Manning Company to develop the plan. In an email from the company, installation expenses were estimated at $40,000.

“The construction cost will depend on whether the guide rail needs to be modified and whether a new signal controller is needed,” wrote project manager Mark Sargent.

RUPCO has proposed to renovate the former Quality Inn for 81 housing units for homeless people seeking permanent residences. The organization plans to have transportation available daily at its site, but city and state officials still expect there will be people who will want to walk to Kingston.

Quigley said the costs of the technical study will be paid for by fees from RUPCO for the review of the site plan.

“The city … is about to get $250,000 in miscellaneous costs from this project can afford to spend $10,000 to come up with a solution and then have discussions with different parties on how to get to the solution,” did he declare.

Quigley added that the New York City Department of Environmental Protection is willing to provide data from its current Route 28 traffic study.

“This is for the City of New York (environmental impact statement) in relation to the renovation of the Ashokan Reservoir,” he said. “They have to define the impacts on traffic, so they installed cameras and counted pedestrians. I had a discussion…for data access and they agreed.

Quigley said a vote on RUPCO’s application is expected at the Oct. 7 city council meeting.

At its regular meeting last week, city council scheduled several public hearings on topics including proposed code changes, a proposal to extend the commercial solar moratorium, the demolition of an allegedly unsafe structure and a plan for a new apartment building in downtown.

Extension of the commercial solar moratorium: September 20. The council will hold a public hearing Sept. 20 at 6:25 p.m. on a local law that would extend the moratorium on commercial solar applications for another year. The city council passed the moratorium last October after residents expressed concern that solar projects were developing too quickly in Calverton. City officials said the pause would allow the city to complete a chapter of the plan’s comprehensive update focused on commercial solar installations and where they should be located over the next few decades, although progress in the update are continually stalled.

Dangerous structure: September 20. A second public hearing will be held September 20 at 6:15 p.m. on an allegedly unsafe structure at 168 Creek Road in Wading River. The October 2020 city council previously determined the structure was unsafe, but the city has been working with the owner to resolve the issues, according to a resolution setting the upcoming hearing. Corrective actions were not taken to the satisfaction of the building inspector. The September 20 public hearing is scheduled to begin at 6:15 p.m.

Extensions of the water district: September 20. The proposed extensions to the Riverhead Water District facilities to serve two residential developments will take place on September 20 at 6:05 p.m. and 6:10 p.m. The first is an extension to serve the mixed-use apartment building at 205 Osborn Avenue, followed by an extension to serve a 10-lot residential development east of Rabbit Run

Sitemap Zenith Building: Oct. 4 The site plan application for the Zenith Building, a four-story mixed-use building planned for McDermott Avenue across from Riverview Lofts, will go to a public hearing on October 4 at 2:05 p.m. council also passed a resolution last week. assuming lead agency status for plan review and issuing a negative statement under the state Environmental Quality Review Act, finding that the Zenith building will not have a significant negative environmental impact.

New downtown parking rules: October 4. The council also set a public hearing for Oct. 4 at 2 p.m. on a city code amendment to reduce parking time limits on Main Street from two hours to one hour to increase downtown “flow.” town.

Open Space Purchase: Oct. 4 The city plans to partner with Suffolk County to purchase a 37.4-acre parcel on the south side of Route 58 known as the “Saw Mill Creek Addition”. The city would contribute $500,000 towards the purchase. The hearing will take place on October 4 at 2:10 p.m.

Fines for confinement of animals in vehicles: 4 Oct. People who lock animals in vehicles during “extreme heat” will face much stiffer fines under a proposed code change scheduled for a public hearing on October 4 at 2:20 p.m.

Marijuana Retail Sales and Trade Shows: October 18. A proposed code change to regulate marijuana retail stores and lounges will go to a public hearing on October 18 at 6:05 p.m.

Proposed code allows state-licensed marijuana dispensaries and salons to operate in most commercial zoning districts that allow retail uses, subject to minimum distancing requirements to prevent businesses from setting up shop close to schools and other family places.

At a special meeting on Sept. 13, city council scheduled a public hearing to determine whether the lead developer of the transit-focused development is a “qualified and eligible sponsor” for the purposes of the law. on the State’s urban renewal.

Master developer TOD RXR/Georgica Green Ventures has proposed to build more than 270 apartments, shops and a 332-space parking lot in the Riverhead station area, on three plots currently publicly owned. One is a municipal car park opposite the station. The other is a county-owned lot at the corner of Griffing and Railroad avenues.

The hearing for qualified and eligible sponsors is set for September 27 at 6 a.m.

In another action at last week’s meeting, the city council:

Voted to accept the donation of an evergreen tree for the future Town Square on East Main Street of Warner’s Nursery in Baiting Hollow, which will deliver and plant the tree. The council has set aside $3,500 to offset the cost of complying with prevailing wages for delivery and planting.

Last year, the city had two dilapidated buildings demolished to make way for the town square. The contractor, J. Petrocelli Contracting Inc. graded the site and built a walkway connecting Main Street to the waterfront parking lot. The contractor will also seed the site. A related company, J. Petrocelli Development Associates, was named the lead developer for the town square earlier this year and is in the process of negotiating an agreement with the city for the project.

Voted to table a resolution authorizing a proposed deal with the Peconic Hockey Foundation to build an ice rink at Veterans Memorial Park in Calverton. The city is still negotiating with the nonprofit Wading River on the terms of a draft agreement, officials said. A draft agreement made public stipulates that the city would accept the bubble dome installation as a donation from Peconic Hockey, and designate the organization’s manager of the installation and make him responsible for the construction.

Authorization of a grant agreement for the Meeting House Creek wetland project. The agreement with the state Department of Transportation provides reimbursement of $50,000 to cover a portion of the cost of constructing a 1.2-acre wetland to manage stormwater runoff affecting Meetinghouse Creek in Aquebogue.

Meetinghouse Creek has been identified as an impaired water body with low dissolved oxygen levels and is one of 41 priority habitat restoration projects in a habitat restoration plan produced in 2017 by the Peconic estuary program.

The wetland will be constructed on a 2.6-acre city-owned parcel on the south side of the main road at the source of the creek and will help improve the water quality of the creek and its ability to support marine life.

Engineering designs and permits for the project are expected to be completed by the end of the year. The total cost of the project is estimated at $650,000, according to the resolution. The Peconic Estuary Program, which funded a Meetinghouse Creek watershed management plan that was completed in 2006, will pay for engineering and design costs and partner with the city on a grant application from the state for construction costs.

Apassed an amendment to the code to provide tougher penalties for littering. Minimum penalties are increased from $250 to $1,000 for a first offence, from $500 to $1,500 for a second offense and from $1,000 to $2,500 for a third or subsequent offense within 18 months of a conviction. previous offence.

Granting of contracts to a new financial adviser and a new bond lawyer. The council approved a contract with Munistat of Port Jefferson Station to serve as the city’s financial advisor. There was another responding to a request for information and quotes posted in July.

The city’s current financial advisory firm, Capital Markets Advisors, was named as a defendant in a federal civil fraud suit filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission in June. The SEC alleged that the company knowingly misled investors in a $119 million municipal bond sale for the city of Rochester in 2019. The company has denied all charges. Riverhead had used the business for six years. The city employed Munistat before signing with CMA.

The board has also retained the law firm Hawkins, Delafield and Wood as bond counsel. There was also another respondent to a request for information and quotes published in July. The current bond attorney for Riverhead, Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe, will continue in that role on certain projects which were listed in a separate document referenced in the resolution, but not attached to the copy distributed to the public.

Copies of the agreements with the two consultants were also not published with the agenda.

Holding a public hearing to designate degraded property and house at 330 Baywood Drive in Calverton a ‘nuisance’ and allow the city to remedy the property and bring it up to code at the owner’s expense. The property is foreclosure, according to a lawyer for the Deutsche Bank mortgage lender, who testified at the hearing. He said he will recommend that the owner remedy the property in accordance with the violations issued by code enforcement.
