Glen Head/Glenwood Business Association Donation Helps Facilitate Community Enhancement Project
Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Michele Johnson are pleased to announce needed repairs and improvements slated for the Town of Oyster Bay’s parking lot G-2 located in Glen Head, adjacent to the railroad station plaza. The project, which will result in improved functionality and aesthetics, will be financed with a generous $3,000 donation from the Glen Head/Glenwood Business Association through the Town’s “Adopt-A-Spot” program.
“Cooperative projects involving the Town of Oyster Bay and local community organizations are becoming more and more commonplace here in the Town of Oyster Bay,” Supervisor Saladino said. “This is another example of local government and the community working cooperatively to accomplish something beneficial for everyone.”
As part of the parking lot project, the Town of Oyster Bay Highway Department will be rehabilitating, repairing and replacing all curbing and sidewalks that are required. Necessary handicap ramps will also be installed, where applicable. Once the work is complete, the Highway Department’s Sign Bureau will restripe the lot and implement the necessary arrows and crosswalks.
“This project represents both form and function,” Councilwoman Johnson added. “Residents will truly appreciate the improvements associated with navigating the new parking lot. In addition, the new look will be a nice community enhancement.”
Supervisor Saladino said the Glen Head/Glenwood Business Association has an impressive legacy of contributing to the community and this project is another example of the incredible impact they have on our Town to make it a better place. As part of their support of the Town’s ‘Adopt-A-Spot’ program the organization will be also be adding park benches, trees and seasonal plantings to the local community.
“I sincerely thank the Glen Head/Glenwood Business Association for their ongoing support and efforts in this joint venture with the Town of Oyster Bay to further beautify the area,” Supervisor Saladino said. “Working cooperatively, we will be able to make this improvement a reality and the end result will be something our residents will appreciate for years to come.”
