The opportunity to transform a long time blighted area is upon us….BUT quickly slipping away! WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!! As many of my friends know, Livingston Development Corp has been looking to reshape the southern Glen Cove Avenue gateway into Glen Cove for almost a decade where we currently have dilapidated, rundown, ugly, embarrassing, buildings. Livingston has worked closely with the community and city to develop a project that is complimentary to Glen Cove, much needed in Nassau County, and so desperately desired on Long Island’s Gold Coast.
I would like to begin with complimenting and giving a big “thank you” to our Public Works personnel. They did an outstanding job in clearing the snow during each of the two snowstorms we’ve experienced this month. I would also like to thank all our first responders for always being at the ready—and thank you to Nassau County OEM, the Nassau County CERT volunteers, and the staff at the Glen Cove Senior Center, for their exemplary efforts at our senior center when it was utilized as a warming site during the storm.
To date, the city has four new cases involving violations to the housing code. Charges were filed in two cases; in one house, the attic was found to be subdivided and contained four beds and in both houses people were living in the cellar. In another case, our code enforcers determined that a storage building behind a commercial property had been subdivided into four apartments.
In times of sorrow, families rely upon the support of their family, friends and community. With the passing of our husband and father, Lieutenant Ralph “Rod” Bruschini of the Glen Cove Police Department, the city of Glen Cove graciously opened their hearts to pay tribute to one of its own.
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Ali and Joe Ciampa for hosting the fourth annual Sea Cliff Soiree.
Several years ago Ali and Joe suggested a fun night of music and food to be held at the Sea Cliff Yacht Club in January, with the net proceeds benefiting the Mutual Concerns Committee.
As the founder and president of the Glen Cove Arts Council, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank and acknowledge the Long Island Academy of Fine Art (LIAFA), Hersh Gallery on Glen Street in Glen Cove, its owners, teachers and student artists who donated their time and talent in support of GCAC.
If you checked your most recent county real estate tax bill (for Jan-Dec 2014) to confirm that you were credited with your senior abatement on your county taxes, you will find no information. In fact, there was no way to verify credit for my senior abatement for 2014 except to ask the Glen Cove Assessor’s office for the amount, if any, that was credited for senior abatement on my current bill.
Have you noticed that the Nassau County Department of Assessment has not issued our Notice of Tentative Assessed Value for 2015/2016, due Jan. 2, 2014 and that any appeals of our assessments must be filed before March 1, 2014??
Our notices for 2013/2014 were dated Jan. 2, 2012 and for 2014/2015 were dated Jan. 2, 2013.
Will our assessments for 2015/2016 continue to be “frozen” at their values of Jan. 3, 2011?
The Sea Cliff - Glen Head Lions are hosting, “Put Your Game Face On” night, a benefit for local charities, featuring guest bartenders: Mayor Bruce Kennedy, Village Trustee“Fast Eddie” Lieberman, and Terry Sciubba, Thursday, Jan. 30, beginning at 7 p.m. at The Metropolitan Bistro in Sea Cliff.
As executive director of Long Island Wins, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting immigrants from all backgrounds, each with a personal immigration story. One of our goals is to use those stories to highlight the contributions that immigrants make to our Long Island communities.
Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Michael Dowling, an Irish immigrant and the president and chief executive officer of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, the largest system in New York State and one of the largest in the country.
North Shore-LIJ has a service area that includes over seven million residents in downstate New York, and it’s the largest employer of immigrants on Long Island, from entry-level workers all the way up to the highest reaches of leadership.
Every Glen Cove household recently received a SAGE (Senior Activities Generational Endowment) Foundation newsletter and annual appeal. Please look at it again and consider the enormous good you can do to by supporting our Senior Center members. The center provides Glen Cove and surrounding neighboring community seniors with friendship, entertainment, activities and programs that help sustain good physical, mental and emotional health. The Life Long Learning programs are vital for our aging population. Also provided is a nutritious lunch program.
Winter is often a difficult time for all of us to be out and active. The center is a wonderful resource for so many who may otherwise be home and alone during these cold days.
Celebrate this wonderful New Year by helping our senior neighbors. It will enrich their lives and yours.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
