Sustainable Transportation and Healthy Public Spaces

The Tarrytown Environmental Advisory Council works for safe and equal access and movement throughout the Village by working with the administration to improve sidewalks, increase pedestrian and bicycle access, facilitate public transportation, improve signage and traffic signals and plan for improved access and transportation in future Village developments.

  • Complete Streets
    As in the rest of the nation, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow have faced recurring pressures from conventional development that have had substantial impacts on local traffic, village character and the natural environment. As in the rest of the nation, the detrimental impact of auto-centric, sprawl-based development is no longer possible to ignore.
    The Complete Streets movement is a national effort of planners and community activists to reclaim our streets for all users — including bicyclists, public transportation vehicles and riders, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities. Read more about this movement at sustainabletarrytowns.org
