Public Input Sought on the Use of $10 Million NYS Grant Award in Downtown Hicksville
Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino announces that the first public workshop to provide input into the use of the $10 million NYS Downtown Revitalization grant in Downtown Hicksville is scheduled for Thursday, November 9th, at the William P. Bennet Hicksville Community Center, located at 28 W. Carl Street in Hicksville. The meeting is scheduled from 7pm to 9:30pm, and follows the kickoff organizational meeting for members of the committee recently held to start the process of planning efforts for the community.
“My administration was thrilled to be the recipient of a $10 million award from Governor Cuomo and the Long Island Regional Economic Development Council for downtown revitalization in Hicksville,” said Supervisor Saladino. “The process has officially begun and the local planning committee – comprised of local and regional leaders, stakeholders, and community representatives – is seeking public input on potential uses for this amazing grant opportunity.”
Under the NYS Downtown Revitalization Initiative grant, the Local Planning Committee seeks to establish and approve a community-based vision for revitalizing the downtown into a vibrant community. This public workshop, the first in a series of three planned, is an important next step on identifying projects and initiatives which the community feels are appropriate for Downtown Hicksville.
