For Immediate Release

March 25, 2010


Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack and the Town Board today are excited to announce the New City Commuter Lot opened today after a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. 


“This is a wonderful example of government partnerships that result in beneficial amenities for the residents of the Town of Clarkstown,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “Commuters now have a safe, beautiful area to leave their cars while they commute to and from work.”


State and County officials including County Executive C. Scott Vanderhoef, Rockland County Legislative Chair Harriet Cornell, and Representatives from Senator Tom Morahan and Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski’s offices were present, as were County Legislators Ed Day and Frank Sparoco.  All agreed the lot was a wonderful project and an asset to the Town.


The project resulted in a 96 vehicle parking commuter lot on 1.3 acre site of former Bradlees Shopping Center adjacent to Route 304.  It includes landscaping, a storm water detention basin, security lighting, a 12’ x 30’ bus shelter, and is handicapped accessible.  The project is part of the overall revitalization of the New City Hamlet and the reconstruction of the Bradless Center which will include a new Stop & Shop.  The New City Revitalization will commence again in the next several weeks.


The project design and construction was completely funded with a grant from the NYSDOT and the Federal Transit Administration totaling $1.5 million.  The NYSDOT will also reimburse the Town of Clarkstown for snow plowing, lighting and maintenance of the lot each year.  The bus shelter was substantially funded by the Rockland County Department of Public Transportation. 


Supervisor Gromack obtained assurance form the NYS DOT today to install signage in the immediate vicinity of the Commuter Lot to increase driver awareness as commuters enter and exit off Route 304.  Additionally, the Supervisor obtained an agreement with the State that the road traffic patterns would be monitored to ensure optimal driver and pedestrian safety.


The Town of Clarkstown assisted the County of Rockland in getting the use of the land for $1.00 per year from the owners of the property for the development of the commuter lot.  The project received review and approval from the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Rockland County Drainage Agency and Rockland County Department of Public Transportation. 


For information about the bus schedule in the lot, residents should call the County Department of Transportation.
