HVAC Upgrade

  • A Notice of Public Hearing for an HVAC upgrade project for two of our residence halls has been issued.  
  • This proposal is to upgrade an inefficient, 50-year old heating system to improve the energy efficiency and air quality in two residence halls: Rippe and Romoser. The heating system in Rippe was upgraded last year; this project will do the same for Romoser and add air conditioning to both residence halls.  
  • The proposal includes the placement of two air-cooled chillers on a concrete pad in front of the existing generator between Romoser and Rippe Halls. The chillers and existing generator will be screened by an 11-ft. sound barrier with a fence-like design. Additionally, a wooden fence will be installed around the sound barrier, blending in with the surrounding environment.
  • Finally, evergreen trees will be planted around this equipment to further screen the area and complement the extensive new landscaping installed last fall. The College’s recommendation for equipment placement was made upon consultation with Paul Taft, the Village’s building inspector, with the goal of minimal visual and noise impacts to the surrounding residences.

 

Turf Field Project

 

The College's plan to update its 100-year-old, grass multi-purpose field at the corner of Rose Avenue and White Plains Road with a state-of-the art synthetic turf field has been approved and is on track for completion in time for the fall 2019 season. Ground-breaking will begin in early 2019. At ground-breaking, a perimeter fence will be installed for the safety of the community. 

The project will include new bleachers, a comfort station with a men’s and women’s restroom, changing rooms and a concession stand, a press box, and a new scoreboard. In response to community input and as announced by Village of Tuckahoe Mayor Steven Ecklond on March 6, the inclusion of lighting in the proposed plan has been eliminated. The project includes an extensive storm water containment system to minimize storm water runoff into the Town’s drainage system.  

At the request of neighbors, the press box will be located on the south end of the field. Speakers will face Rose Avenue. An updated circulation plan includes a crosswalk from the Tennis Center to the turf field entrance; buses may not park or idle on Rose Avenue, but may load and unload within 15 minutes.
