Mayor Calls For Third Track Feedback

The Town of Hempstead in conjunction with the villages of Floral Pk. New Hyde Pk. and Garden City have decided to hold a press conference at 12:00 noon in front of the New Hyde Pk. Village Hall at the corner of Jericho Tpke and New Hyde Pk. Rd. The theme will be to ask the MTA/LIRR very forcefully to answer the questions and issues raised in the Vertex report. We hope to raise awareness about the potential adverse consequences this project will most likely have on the residents and businesses in our community. The format has not yet been defined, but all of our Town, County and NYS elected representatives have been invited and will be asked to speak. I am not sure yet if the Mayors or Trustees will be speaking other than introductions, but we will try and accommodate as many people as possible. At Noon on Friday, March 24th, a Press Conference is Scheduled to take place to confront the MTA/LIRR with numerous issues that will negatively impact residents along the railroads Central Branch right-of-way. Garden City’s Mayor, Nicholas Episcopia, invites all Garden City home and business owners to attend this session and voice their opinions.

High School Ambassador Program

The Mission Statement

The High School Ambassadors serve the community for two years during which time they become vital members of the Garden City Central Property Owners’ Association.

Each Student Ambassador is required to attend Village Committee meetings on a regular basis. By doing so, they absorb the essence of the community’s governmental process and present the governing boards / committees with the faces of the next generation. Upon return to the CPOA Board’s monthly meetings they present the agendas and issues of the discussions that have taken place at the meetings which they attended.

During their terms as Ambassadors, students are expected to complete a Community Service project which is in keeping with their particular skills and preferences.
