Upcoming Beacon Hill Bluffs Stabilization Project Presentation Available for Viewing
North Hempstead, NY - Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Council member Dina De Giorgio held an informative public meeting on Monday, August 5 at 7 p.m. at North Hempstead Town Hall to brief the community on the upcoming Beacon Hill Bluffs stabilization project. The presentation is available by clicking here.
This project will stabilize the slopes located at the western end of Hempstead Harbor Wood behind Summit Road. The project will serve as a long-term solution to stabilize the Beacon Hills Bluffs, making the bluffs resistant to future erosion and permitting long-term revegetation of native grasses and trees.
These slopes remain from the former Colonial Sand and Stone Company property and land formally owned by Nassau County. This project’s scope of work is similar to the work that was performed by the Town along the Harbor Links Golf Course when that property was developed.
The project will involve removing vegetation and earthen material along the slope face; regrading earthen material to create a properly pitched and terraced surface that will minimize future erosion and control storm water runoff; and the re-vegetation of the slope face with native grasses. The residents of Summit Road may be impacted by higher than normal noise during work hours.
