We, the below-signed East Hills residents want to register our deep disappointment with recent actions by the Architectural Review Board (ARB) regarding a house in Norgate that has been in the news.
Despite our requests to be heard and our appeals for them to properly enforce the villages laws for tree protection and home design, the ARB brushed aside our efforts and summarily dismissed our arguments.
I thank all who voted in the recent Village of East Hills trustees election. Prior to my involvement, village board seats have gone to unopposed incumbents with under 100 residents casting votes. It was therefore encouraging to see so many residents exercise their right to be heard.
The closeness of the results clearly indicates that the Unity Party was not handed a mandate. The Unity Party’s status quo message of “Stay Great” did not resonate with many residents and, indeed, was found to be offensive by some.
I read your recent article covering Nassau County Executive Edward I. Mangano’s State of the County address with great interest (“Mangano Warns of 13 Percent Tax Jump,” Anton Newspapers, March 22 and 23), but I fear your story missed the point – by a longshot.
The county executive did not threaten a 13 percent property tax increase; in fact, he never even uttered the words. Further, setting the legislative agenda is among my many duties as presiding officer, and I assure you, there will not be a tax increase on the agenda this year, just as there was no tax increase on the agenda in the past two years. Where did you even get your information?
We are writing to you on behalf of Friends of the Horse Tamer and the Roslyn Public Schools. We are a group of Roslyn High School alumni who have come together with current Roslyn High School students to raise funds to restore the historic Horse Tamer statue.
The statue, which has been at Roslyn High School for over 50 years, has long been in need of major repair. In early February the horse was removed from the high school circle and placed in storage to prevent further exposure to the weather and its total collapse. The statue will remain in storage while we raise the necessary funds for its complete restoration. To do this we need to raise $150,000 by June 30.
State Senator Jack Martins needs to support legislation to ban hydraulic fracturing in New York.
Fracking is the biggest environmental issue of our time. With each frack, 80,000 pounds of toxic chemicals will be introduced into our land. Seventy percent of this fracking fluid will stay underground. This stuff is not biodegradable. Our water and air will ultimately be polluted.
Over the past several months, there has been much speculation and criticism about the future of Nassau’s eight police precinct buildings. Though critics of this plan have expressed skepticism on realigning the current eight precincts into four, it is important to remember that all eight buildings will remain open and accessible to the public. The realignment of the precincts only affects the boundary lines of administrative paperwork and criminal processing, not the locations in which officers are located on the streets as some critics have stated.
For those of us who have tried to draw the line on bad overdevelopment and reckless removal of healthy trees in East Hills at a house on Laurel Lane, we are coming soon to a moment of decision.
Those other East Hills residents who agree with us can lend a hand and help us get the laws changed and enforcement improved.
To his re-election campaign, we believe Manny Zuckerman brings with him over 12 years of valuable experience, serving both as an East Hills Village trustee and as our deputy mayor. His involvement in our community also includes posts as security commissioner, chairman of the Village Planning Board and important roles in the Unified Civic Association. Among his many accomplishments, Manny was and is the driving force in creating and maintaining our village’s 24 hour/7 days per week security patrols. He has just announced a new emergency shelter facility equipped with power generators to be located in the East Hills Park for the safety, ease and comfort of East Hills’ residents in the event of an East Hills power outage. During his tenure, Manny has been instrumental, alongside Mayor Koblenz, in creating and maintaining the wonderful village life that we all enjoy. We believe he has been an indispensable part of the Unity Party team that has expanded beneficial programs for our residents. He has done so while maintaining financial stability despite the bleak economic condition of our country. Please join our family in supporting Manny’s re-election as we feel that he has the requisite skills and experience to keep our village moving in the innovative direction along the trusted path it is on today.
It is a truism that good things just don’t happen on their own; they’re made to happen.
Good things are happening in our community day in and day out and it’s not by mere coincidence. It’s because of the hard work and dedication of our board members, including Deputy Mayor Manny Zuckerman and Trustee Clara Pomerantz. They are running for re-election and we hope you will join us in supporting them.
