Safe Streets for Morse School: Keep the Crosswalk

Dear Friends:

The Village of Sleepy Hollow wants to remove the crosswalk on Pocantico St that aids people walking between the Van Tassel Apartments and Morse School. The crosswalk should remain because it's heavily used during school hours, and even throughout the day.

Most importantly, the crosswalk is at this location because it's where most people actually cross.

The only change needed is shifting the loading zone to the south side of the crosswalk and putting the handicapped spot on the north side of the crosswalk.

I suggested this back in February. The following link is to an explanation of my suggestions at that time. Neighbors were having problems with the crosswalk being blocked by people parking their cars. While the Village thankfully installed the bollards, the parking swap wasn't implemented.

You may hear that the crosswalk goes into Morse's driveway. It does not. It starts on the sidewalk _next_ to the driveway, just like nearly every other crosswalk in the world is next to the parallel street.
