Beacon Citizen Network (BCN): a place for neighbors to get the word out, be heard and stay informed in all matters concerning Beacon, NY.



I ran by Madam Brett Park yesterday and saw they are doing some ground preparation for something behind the "Beacon Terminal Associates" building closest to the RR tracks.  Does anyone know what they are doing?

"The 11 acre property adjacent to Fishkill Creek is proposed for development as a residential condominium complex. Two buildings, which were constructed around 1878 as the Tioranda Hat Works, are slated to be restored as a residential condominium complex with limited commercial use."

Ahhh, so the re-building of the bridge now makes sense.  Anyone want to bet there is a connection between the condo development and whoever pushed the bridge building project through?  There NEVER was justification to complete that bridge for traffic use (there were totally bogus claims of the need for an emergency route through there, as if people couldn't leave the sub-division on the other side of the creek via Route 9D, or people on the park side of the creek couldn't drive either way down South Avenue).  Having the bridge for pedestrian/bicycle had some merit (but probably not if the cost of building the bridge is considered).

Steve: I think Randy is talking about South Avenue, the woods next to the Chrystie House.

They are putting in 2 houses, each with a guest house, there now. It was slated for 10 houses but the new owner changed course.

If one of us wins the lottery, we should link Beacon Terminal Associates, the old Tuck Tape Factory grounds, Craig House property, and University Settlement into one institution, perhaps a college, an institute, anything.

Before the last of the wide open unique areas of Beacon becomes plain boring suburbia.

What is the "Sargent Property"?

Comment by Randy Caruso on June 19, 2014 at 1:44pm

Not sure, but I wonder if it coincides what's happening out on the Sargent Property - it's beautiful out there, looks like a park but I'm betting it's time to be chopped up for housing.
