The recently created Heritage of West Nyack plans to engage in many activities designed to focus on the rich history of the hamlet, promote projects to improve its ambiance, security and appearance and act as a liason between the community and the town of Clarkstown.
This civic organization was started to give the hamlet a collective voice and to preserve the heritage of West Nyack. The introduction of the Heritage of West Nyack comes at a very timely moment with the recent demolition of the Teabury Port House.
The group also hopes to bring a voice to the table in the revitilization project that is scheduled for 2015, which will include streetscape enhancements, drainage upgrades, park improvements, increase parking and relocation of utilities.
Heritage was chartered in April. In November, the Heritage received its 501c3 status as a not-for-profit organization. Heritage is seeking membership from businesses, individuals and families to fund its activities. Membership is tax deductible.
The Heritage of West Nyack is meeting Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at the West Nyack Library.
