The Concerned Citizens Association of Farmingdale would like to extend an open invitation for community residents to attend the Jan. 21 civic meeting to be held at the Allen Park meeting room, at 7:30 p.m. The topic of the first civic meeting of the new year will be a discussion on Economic Development efforts in the Town of Oyster Bay. Maintaining and growing quality jobs on Long Island continue to be a challenge in the current economic downturn. A representative from the town’s Planning Dept and Town Council will be on hand to share potential opportunities.
The Concerned Citizens Association of Farmingdale is a nonprofit, non-partisan neighborhood civic organization dedicated to representing the ordinary citizens and homeowners of Farmingdale who wish to maintain and enhance the quality of life in their community. This civic offers a forum under which local residents can come together to acquire and disseminate information. The CCAF seeks to address concerns related to: Zoning/Development; public safety; environment; and all issues collectively identified as necessary to achieve our common goal. The main goal of a civic is to help ensure that the government represents the needs of the public rather than those of special interest groups and to preserve and enhance our “small-town” atmosphere.
This goal can only be taken on with the support and participation of an active civic membership. Community involvement requires residents to be informed, participate in a dialogue and engage in potential solutions to issues. One voice can be heard but it takes many voices to be listened to and taken seriously.
The CCAF Civic Board will continue to provide a forum for issues that are not only important to our community but also critical across Long Island. Monthly meetings are held most third Thursdays of each month. We welcome your input and participation, please join us on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m., Allen Park meeting room.
CCAF Board: President Chuck Gosline, Treasurer Phil Badome,
VP Tina Diamon,
Board Member Brian Ciampo,
Past President Lisa Twomey
