As this space wrote, there are quite a few projects and tasks that need to be performed in Mount Kisco. Some of these are small capital projects while others might involve hiring a new employee or passing a new local law. Others are projects, like the one highlighted today, take a little labor and coordination.
When one turns into Fox Park to go to the Fox Senior Center or to Wall Field, the first thing they see is a large fenced-in (sometimes open) garbage area with a dumpster. Further, this dumpster is directly next to the new playground for children. This design flaw was raised before and during construction and should have been addressed during construction. There is room for this dumpster towards the railroad tracks which would move it away from the playground and out of direct view of all visitors to this park. Moving the dumpster would require coordination of the Mount Kisco Housing Authority. To help the residents living near Fox Park, the Village of Mount Kisco should place reserved signs on residents parking. This parking is sometimes taken by visitors to Fox Park, unaware that it is reserved parking for residents.
The pictures below show (left to right) the dumpster area next to the playground, the area where the dumpster could be moved, and the residents parking spaces that should be marked with signs on poles.
