Letter: Village Sqaure Piazza

Friday, 22 July 2011 00:00
I was one of the many Glen Cove residents who attended the Planning Board meeting about the Village Square Piazza. I cannot believe that business owners in Glen Cove are in favor of this huge renovation and as a resident I was totally disappointed with the presentation. Much has been said about the buildings along Brewster Street that isolate downtown. With the proposed design, there is no access to the businesses on School Street while traveling along the Glen Cove/Brewster Street corridor, particularly for someone who may be unfamiliar with Glen Cove. I feel that opening Glen Street to Brewster is essential to the vitality of the downtown business area.
 

Letter: LWV Objects to Hub Referendum Vote Date

Friday, 22 July 2011 00:00

(This letter was sent to County Executive Edward Mangano and the County Legislature.)

The League of Women Voters of Nassau County strongly objects to the August 1 scheduling of a Nassau County referendum on the proposal to permit the county to borrow up to an additional $400 million for a proposed “Nassau County Hub Area Development” construction project, which would include a new Nassau Coliseum and minor league ballpark. Our reasons include the following:

The cost of doing this as a special election, projected to be approximately $2 million, is not necessary and would come at a time when Nassau County is already experiencing serious financial difficulties. Though the cost would be picked up if the vote is “Yes,” if it is “No,” the voters would have to bear this unnecessary burden. This risk can easily be avoided by scheduling the vote on the same day and on the same ballots as those for the general election in the fall. Most bond issue votes have been done that way in the past.

 

Letter: From David Nieri

There was a full house in the City Council chamber for the Public Hearing before the Planning Board on the Village Square Piazza plan [on June 21].  It was good to see the community interest in this project even though many of the citizens present were just hearing about it for the first time.

Most of the buildings to be redeveloped in Village Square are owned by Mr. Puntillo, who is making application before the Planning Board to redevelop the current run-down property into mixed-use residential and commercial units in 4- and 5-story buildings. His team presented magnificent images from their 3D visual model depicting the project from all sides.

 

Letter: Needs or Wants?

Friday, 15 July 2011 00:00
This is a time when it is difficult for people to not be worried about the economy. We all seem to be watching the unemployment numbers, struggling to pay for home heating oil, gas for our vehicles, and keeping up with our rising school and property taxes. It is a time when many of us are fearful about how much higher the basic cost of living will rise and maybe even how much longer we will be able to live in our homes.

Montesano Passes Legislation to Honor Vets

Assemblyman Michael A. Montesano (R,C,I-Glen Head) successfully passed Assembly bill 5165, which designates the Northern State Parkway as the “Purple Heart Way” to honor local military veterans who have served so valiantly for their country. The portion of the highway that has been renamed starts at the Nassau County line in the village of Lake Success, Town of North Hempstead and ends in Hauppauge in the towns of Islip and Smithtown, located in Suffolk County.

Letter: Nassau’s Mitchel Field Deteriorating

Friday, 01 July 2011 00:00

Our Long Island high school athletes in track and field have proven to be among the best in New York State. It is with great disappointment that Nassau County’s Mitchel Athletic Complex, once considered “The World’s Biggest Stage, a showcase for the best competition the world has ever seen…,” [Goodwill Games] has let the field events deteriorate to the point of forcing our high school athletes and other famous high profile meets to seek other venues for their competition.

 

Letter: In Memory of Elinor Zatlin

Friday, 24 June 2011 00:00

With the death of Elinor Zatlin last week, Glen Cove lost a dynamic, compassionate, wonderful woman who contributed those very qualities to our community and its history. Mrs. Zatlin, a true gentlewoman, always had a smile and gentle words of wisdom to share whenever I would run into her at the supermarket, at the Boys & Girls Club on quite a few Election Days, and at local events. We comforted one another when we talked about coping with the tragedy we both faced. She was an incredible person, all embracing. Mrs. Zatlin was a presence in Glen Cove that will be missed by everyone.

Eternal Be Her Memory.

Letter: Hospital Fetes Volunteers

Friday, 24 June 2011 00:00
On Thursday, June 2, Glen Cove Hospital Auxilians came together for their annual Hours Awards Luncheon. It was a happy occasion as friends who work different shifts and at different posts were able to greet one another, relax and chat… something they cannot do on a usual working day. After warm greetings by President Nancy Cleary and Administrator Dennis Connors, proud auxilians were called up to receive recognition and to accept their awards. Notable were Betty Fabijanic with 45,000 hours and Joan Stein with 40,000 hours. Administrator Connors expressed appreciation for all the time and effort put forth by members of the Auxiliary as well as the funds they’ve raised for the various needs and divisions of Glen Cove Hospital. Special recognition was granted to retiring honoree Terry Walston for her years of service in various positions, which ultimately culminated in her 2005-07 presidency. Attendees enjoyed the attractive photographic collage display of Linda Navarro, whose creativity was appreciated and remarked upon.
