* GH BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT: As you may have noticed we have been working with much assistance from Town officials to test the first phase of lighting installed around town by shutting off some 13 lights and the feedback we are getting is that the over lighting situation has improved. The 13 lights now will be installed during the second phase of the project - to take place when school closes at the end of June so to avoid traffic jams - that calls for installing lights west of the four corners past Jack Shack, and across the street by the Getty gas station and north up to the Promised Deli on both sides of the street (actually almost no lights will be installed on the side of the deli due to the high number of driveways on the street.) This phase also calls for repaving the sidewalks around the Getty gas station and on the north side of the street (by the car repair shop up the deli), as well the installation of a clock across from the stores in Town around the benches' area. Lastly, again with great participation of Town officials, we are looking at either lowering the voltage on the remaining lights, from 100 to 70, or looking to install LED lighting. The options being discussed are added expenses as the Town did not have LED lighting available and thus the reasons why regular bulbs were installed - the Civics are working to improve this last item and will keep everyone informed.
* GETTY GAS STATION: The Civics have for the past several months been holding discussions with the company that owns the gas station, and we are finally informed by the owners that shortly they will likely shut down the station to perform renovations which will include replacing existing tanks and pumps, and conducting an overall improvement to the place before reopening. We expect this to occur within the upcoming weeks and will keep everyone informed.
* SUNOCO/BANK PROJECT: The Civics are getting nearly no feedback from the Bank on this long overdue project. Sunoco advises the Civics that negotiations continue. As you may recall a contract to purchase was signed, however, it included conditions of completing clean up which we are advised continues to be a small issue. We will continue to press for updates.
* LUNDY'S PROPERTY: After several years of this property being in shambles and practically abandoned by its owners (Breeze Eastern, Inc.) Town officials have promised to initiate a review of the property with the objective of pressing the owners to clean up the nearly 8 acres of land by minimally demolishing the existing building which is a fire hazard and an eyesoreto our community. We will keep everyone update don the progress.
Have a great evening.
