“The City and its agencies are grateful to the EPA for awarding these federal funds that will allow us to complete the remediation of the final property in the Waterfront Redevelopment Area. I thank Senator Gillibrand for her leadership on this issue and to all of the elected officials and federal, state and county agencies who have worked with us over the last two decades as we approach this great milestone.” - Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi speaking on the recently secured funding for the Glen Cove Waterfront project
Oyster Bay Town Board hears presentation on Hicksville revitalization
This past Tuesday, July 23, Vision Long Island and the Hicksville Chamber of Commerce presented the revitalization plan for downtown Hicksville before the Oyster Bay Town Board. The revitalization plan began in January of 2010 with a large public visioning, followed by additional public meetings and presentations before each of the civic organizations of Hicksville. A revitalization committee helped guide the plan to ensure that it reflects the interests of the Hicksville residents. After the report was completed, Vision worked with a group of students from NYU Wagner School of Public Service to do a market study and fiscal impact analysis of the revitalization plan to determine its feasibility.
After the agenda of the Town Board hearing was completed, Supervisor Venditto spoke a few words about what the Town has done in Hicksville in recent years, but emphasized that anything that is done has to be the will of the people and that the best interest of Hicksville has to be at the heart of the plan. Vision presented a summary of both the revitalization plan and the economic analysis. The revitalization plan included elements of walkability, beautification and code enforcement, parking improvements, a restaurant row, local chains, a mix of housing types and office uses, as well as special events such as farmers markets, street fairs and family fun nights. In order to implement many of these ideas, the plan includes an overlay zone that breaks the current “one size fits all” zone into three subzones- one closest to the train station, one along Broadway and Marie Street and one for the southern portion of the downtown.
The market study found that there was a market demand of $31 million within the Hicksville and surrounding trade areas that can translate to over 100,000 square feet of new retail space within the downtown showing that there is an economic potential for new mixed use retail buildings in the downtown. In addition the fiscal impact analysis showed that a full buildout of the plan would lead to the largest net tax gain in the area to help relieve taxes for the surrounding residents, when compared to the existing conditions and a full buildout of the existing zoning.
Overall the Town Board and Supervisor seemed pleased with the amount of thought that went into the plan as well as how tailored to Hicksville it turned out to be. They had some questions concerning how zoning was determined and the extent of the outreach as well as how the taxes were calculated, but recognized that the plan took into account the diversity of opinions within Hicksville and developed a compromise solution that focused on common goals.
After the presentation several members of the community spoke in favor of the project relaying stories of growing up in Hicksville and the need for many of these revitalization elements to help fill some of Hicksville’s gaps and make it vibrant again. They pointed out the need for housing since many of their kids have moved out of Hicksville since there weren’t any housing options and that many older residents would like to downsize from their large house to something smaller, but don’t want to leave the community. They hope to see the downtown area cleaned up and a greater variety of shops, restaurants and things to do, and understand that all aspects of the revitalization need to be addressed to create the environment that will attract these elements to the downtown.
As part of the revitalization process, this past Sunday, July 21st, the 11th Annual Hicksville Summer Fair took place at Kennedy Park near the Hicksville train station. Over 4,000 people gathered near the center of the hamlet to enjoy entertainment ranging from live musical performances to water rides. The event was provided by the Hicksville Chamber of Commerce.
Vision was more than happy to partake in this annual event and garner support for the downtown Hicksville Revitalization project.
Environmental Protection Agency Provides Funding to Clean up Doxey Industrial Site in Glen Cove
Last year, United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand revealed plans to fix up Glen Cove’s abandoned industrial sites through her “Waterfront Brownfields Revitalization Act.” This legislation was enacted to provide grants to organizations and government entities who have plans to revitalize underutilized industrial facilities.
“This is an important investment for Glen Cove’s Waterfront Redevelopment Area,” Gillibrand announced. She further noted that with federal funding, the legislation will be able to “help revitalize neighborhoods, attract new businesses, create new jobs, and make the waterfront a place for long islanders to live, work and raise a family.”
Just earlier this month, Gillibrand announced that the Environmental Protection Agency will be providing $815 thousand to clean up the Doxey site, the last brownfield on Glen Cove’s waterfront in need of cleanup.
“The City and its agencies are grateful to the EPA for awarding these federal funds that will allow us to complete the remediation of the final property in the Waterfront Redevelopment Area,” stated Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi. “I thank Senator Gillibrand for her leadership on this issue and to all of the elected officials and federal, state and county agencies who have worked with us over the last two decades as we approach this great milestone.”
The Doxey site is a lynch pin in the city's plan for revitalization of the waterfront. Plans for the area include a hotel, conference center, residential units, retail shops, restaurants and municipal parks along the Glen Cove Creek. With decontamination underway, the city will be able to execute these plans. In the process, the brownfield redevelopment is predicted to create around 7,000 temporary construction jobs, while the end product will increase tax revenue for the municipality.

Sunrise Highway's dangerous speeders show a need for safety improvements
Last month the Tri State Transportaion Campaign conducted a traffic study to measure speeding motorists along two sections of Sunrise Highway in Freeport Long Island. TSTC, with the help of a radar gun recorded the speeds of motorists heading westbound on Sunrise Highway heading westbound during the morning rush hour. Data was recorded for the intersections of Sunrise Highway and Benson Place as well as for the intersection of Guy Lombardo Ave and Sunrise, between the hours of 8:25am and 8:45am and 9:00am and 9:25am respectively.
At the Intersection of Sunrise Highway and Benson Place, the speed limit is set at 40 MPH and sits just outside of a reduced speed limit zone as commuters approach Freeport’s commercial corridor. The second intersection, which is located right in the heart of Freeport’s downtown the posted speed limit is set at 30 MPH. For both locations, Sunrise Highway is a six-lane major arterial roadway that serves local and through traffic along Nassau County’s south shore.
Once the results were tallied it was found that over 80 percent of motorist on Sunrise Highway drove faster than legally permitted. Considering that the data was collected during morning rush hour, a time of relatively high road congestion, it is likely that motorist passing through Freeport along Sunrise Highways travel at even greater speeds during off-hours.
Countless studies over the years have linked higher motorist speeds with increased rates of pedestrian fatalities. Recently there have been efforts taken by the New York State Department of Transportation, including a recently released Transportation Improvement Program amendment in order to help reduce the amount of excessive speeding along Sunrise Highway.
The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has done nothing to engage stake holders located along the Sunrise corridor to come up with a plan that matches the vision of local communities. Local leaders across long Island have been perusing revitalization projects in downtowns like Freeport for year in hopes that these projects will reduce congestion, support local businesses, generate additional foot traffic, and to enhance the overall quality of local life.
In the past NYSDOT has made progress on another of Long Islands’ most dangerous roads, Hempstead Turnpike. Unfortunately though, the department of Transportation had fail to engage local community members during the design process, leading to many complaints about pedestrian fencing that limits accessibility along specific sections of the corridor to pedestrians. NYSDOT must engage local-stakeholders to riley together and create a community lead vision in order to address the high speeding issues along Sunrise Highway.

Friends of Long Island advances Post-Sandy Rebuilding
On Thursday evening, over 70 people were in attendance at the Friends of Long Island meeting held at the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College. Approximately 18 different community groups participated representing Sandy affected communities from East Rockaway to the Hamptons. Guest speakers included Irene Chang-Cimino, Lead Counsel, President Obama's Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force, Scott Martella, Office of the Governor Suffolk County Representative, and Martin Schwartzman, CPCU, CFE, CIE New York State Department of Financial Services Senior Advisor to the Superintendent. Each community provided an update about their progress including rebuilding, insurance issues, and fundraising. The groups also heard upcoming programs, possible funding imitative, and how to address some of the challenges they are having with insurance companies. Local FEMA representatives were also in attendance and provided additional information on FEMA claims and appeals.
Friends of Long Island: Communities Helping Communities post-Sandy is a diverse coalition of local community and business organizations focused on post-Sandy rebuilding. Although it has been almost 9 months since the storm, many south shore neighborhoods, residents and businesses still need all forms of assistance. The goal of these groups is to ensure public and private resources make it directly to local communities, and has pledged to raise $500,000 to this end.
If you would like to support and donate to Friends of Long Island: Communities Helping Communities post-Sandy, you can download a donation form here to make a donation. Friends of Long Island will also be hosting a fundraiser at all California Pizza Kitchen locations across the island on August 30th. Simply bring this flyer with you and $5 from your dinner will be donated to Friends of Long Island.
Sign the petition to the US Department of Transportation Petition to Make Smart Growth Projects Easier
A petition to the US Department of Transportation is in circulation which could change the current road standards, determined by the US functional classification system, to meet the efforts and standards of complete streets. With enough political support, the US DOT will seek changes to thoroughfares classifications.
The petition was launched at The Congress for the New Urbanism in Salt Lake City, on May 30 and since then, various organizations and local leaders met with US DOT officials. Having received positive response, the US DOT wants to promote livability, complete streets, and multimodal transportation. The petition will show the support need to move forward and make changes to a system which has not seen changes in over 50 years.
Arterial, collector, and local designations, which are divided into rural or urban locations, will not change but rather the petition seeks to add a third suburban location and allow enough specificity to introduce different standards.
Currently, if a thoroughfare is in an "urbanized area," and is designated "arterial," then a certain standard applies. The standard for metro areas, since they are largely suburban, is geared towards to creating suburban, auto-oriented environments. Under the proposed functional classification system, suburban arterials and collectors have the potential to be designated as future walkable thoroughfares where official plans support such a transformation and, over time, suburban streets could get funding to convert to complete streets.
The changes would make smart growth projects easier and boost walking and bicycling, complete streets, and active living to the benefit of pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users.
