Port Washington, NY- The Town of North Hempstead and The Shared Vision Steering Committee invite all who live or work on the Port Washington Peninsula to the Design Event Weekend, which was originally scheduled to be held at Schreiber High School but has been moved to Weber Middle School. This weekend is an opportunity for all residents to come together and create a plan for the future of our community.
Hear the major concerns you and your neighbors expressed at the open forums about environment/recreation, support services and development at Schreiber High School at 8:00 p.m. on April 14th at the Community Presentation. Come participate in the weekend activities and recommend solutions to concerns raised at the open forum meetings. By taking part in walking tours and small group discussions, you can shape the future of the Port Washington Peninsula.
The design event will take place Saturday, April 16th and Sunday, April 17th at Weber Middle School with walking tours from 9:00 a.m. to noon and roundtable discussions from noon to 4:00 p.m. Monday, April 18th will be a condensed version held at 7:30 to 8:00 p.m. which will include weekend walking tour updates and roundtable discussions, also at Weber Middle School. Activities on Saturday and Sunday are identical.
The Town of North Hempstead joins with the villages of Baxter Estates, Flower, Hill, Manorhaven, Plandome Manor, Port Washington North and Sands Point; NYS Senator Michael Balboni, NYS Assemblyman Thomas DiNapoli; Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi; Nassau County Legislator Craig Johnson; General Council of Homeowner Associations of Port Washington; Port Washington Business Improvement District and the Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington in this endeavor.
“We will be exploring priority areas on the Port Washington peninsula by foot and discussing concerns and ideas regarding traffic, open space, commercial development, public safety, the waterfront and water quality that you and your neighbors have raised during the open forum meetings,” said Supervisor Kaiman. “Residents with other issues that have not been raised and believe they might affect the future of the Port Washington Peninsula are free and encouraged to add these concerns.”
"All residents must be involved in this historic process in order to impact the decisions that will affect our lives and that of our families for years to come,” commented Councilman Fred Pollack.
