The following column, written by Village of Greenwood Lake Mayor Jesse Dwyer, has been published in the Apr. 19 issue of the Warwick Valley Dispatch:
Each year, I try to remind residents to be mindful of pedestrians who are walking throughout the Village. The weather has turned for the better and people are out and about. If you choose to walk at night, please consider wearing bright clothes so drivers can clearly see you in dark sections of the Village. While driving, please remember that the law requires you to stop for pedestrians who are using a designated crosswalk. The Village has applied to the DOT to install crosswalks at each intersecting street along Windermere Ave., as well as some others. In addition, we have been awarded a grant to install a sidewalk along the bend on Waterstone Rd. Although we are still awaiting the money, the project should begin this year. We encourage walking and running throughout the Village. As drivers, please make sure that those walking or running stay safe.
