The Beacon Planning Board on Dec. 13 approved Scenic Hudson’s expansion plans for Long Dock Park, clearing the way for the environmental organization to begin the final phase of construction at the park next spring.

The organization plans to add lawns and native-plant meadows, café tables and chairs, a boardwalk and infrastructure for up to two food trucks on a rehabilitated 4-acre parcel that will complement the riverfront park, bringing it to 19 acres in all. Eighteen parking spaces will also be added.

The project should be completed by early 2018, Scenic Hudson said in a statement, marking the end of more than a decade and $16 million of work at the former industrial site.
