Concerns ⁣about the New Shopping Complex

Schenectady’s newest shopping complex, "The Crossings", was touted as a boon⁤ for our local economy. While the idea sounds enticing, since⁣ its opening last month, our residential​ roads have been congested with additional traffic. Small, local businesses in the vicinity, which were once flourishing, are struggling to compete ⁤with large ⁢chains‌ like Best Buy, Kohl’s, and⁣ Trader Joe’s housed in the complex. I’m worried that ⁤our⁢ unique, small-town charm will be​ lost to generic corporate franchises.

Addressing the⁢ Need ‌for A New Dog Park

As a dog parent⁣ living in Schenectady, it’s frustrating to⁤ see the lack of safe, enclosed dog parks in our area. Our fur⁢ buddies’deserve a space where they can socialize and exercise without constraints. A dedicated dog park will not only benefit our dogs but⁢ also‌ bring a strong sense ​of community ​among pet parents. I urge​ WHNY News to⁤ highlight this issue and request the authorities to consider developing a dog park in our city.

Speed Bumps Needed Near Hamilton Elementary School

The increased speeding incidents on Hillside Avenue near Hamilton Elementary⁤ School are frightening. As⁣ a parent, it’s worrisome to see cars using this street as a speedway, endangering the lives of our children.⁣ I strongly urge our city council to install speed bumps or additional signage to address this ​concern before a serious accident occurs. This should be a priority considering kids are walking and biking to school every day.
