Below are a couple of updates on projects going on in the community that are being headed by the local Civic Associations.
* Glen Head beautification project: As you know the Town stopped the completion of the project pending the delivery of the 41 lights that are to be installed as part of the project. While all of the electrical outlets are in place, covered by those oversized ugly cones, the Town states delays in delivery of the lights by the manufacturer continue. The last promise was that on December 20th the lights would be delivered and installed starting December 21st. Well, now the Town states the manufacturer delivered the wrong size (14 feet instead of 12 feet height) and they cannot be installed as they are too close to the street lights thus must be returned to the manufacturer!! The community is highly disappointed with these continuous delays - it has been over two months that our streets have had the cones all over the center of town. We are awaiting for an update from the Town on the new delivery date...
* Halms Industries property - Glen Head Road: The Gold Coast Library has made an offer to the purchase the 5.3 acres of land available at this site with the purpose of relocating the library from it's existing railroad site. The purchase will be dependent on a referendum that will need to be endorsed, or not endorsed, by the community. The Library has publicized their intentions and you - the members of the community - will have the opportunity to vote on this referendum expected to take place during April 2015. The Civics will meet in January to discuss this matter.
* Bank/Sunoco property: As everyone knows the Bank has signed a contract to purchase the property and the Civics have met with Bank representatives to discuss the project. The Bank shared with the Civics drawings of the projected two floor building and the Bank has accepted some input provided by Civic representatives concerning the actual building. The Bank has asked their architects to incorporate these suggestions and will be forwarding a copy of the update drawings to the Civics. The project, as stated by Bank representatives, is expected to take possibly another year-and-a-half or close to two years to complete.
Let me or know if you have any questions.
Regards, and enjoy the rest of the Holidays!!
