The City of White Plains was awarded $1 million for its multi-modal transportation center redevelopment project in the third round of the state’s Regional Economic Development Council initiative, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday.

The initiative, established in 2011, tasks regional stakeholders with developing strategic plans for projects that will create jobs and support economic growth in their communities.

The White Plains Multimodal Transportation Center Redevelopment Project will provide an enhanced multi-modal transportation center that serves all modes of travel and maximizes the economic development potential of the area. The project is also expected to create a welcoming new place that will transform the station area and provide an attractive and functional gateway for the city’s downtown core.

White Plains was awarded the money as part of a $59.6 million pool of funds given to projects throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley region. Nearly $716 million was awarded to projects statewide.

Now can we move the buses PARKING ON HAMILTON AVENUE BETWEEN CONROY AND BROADWAY? THEY TAKE UP A LANE OR TWO OF TRAFFIC everyday day, usually all day long!!!! why ARE THEY ALLOWED TO PARK THERE WHEN THE BUSES ALREADY HAVE A TRANSPORTATION CENTER FOR PARKING? TRAFFIC HAZARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! INSULT TO TAX PAYING CITIZENS - THEY TAKE UP SPACES SOMETIMES!!!!!! no tickets for the private company? unequal application of parking law enforcement? Why am I not surprised? White Plains - city of different classes of Citizens: the little people and the rich, monied, connected - has not changed and probably never will. MOVE THE BUSES OFF HAMILTON!!!!!!!!
