The Town of North Hempstead has prepared a transportation contingency plan for local commuters who may be looking for alternatives if the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) workers strike on July 20.

The plan includes adding free parking at North Hempstead Beach Park, on West Shore Rd. in Port Washington, to aid car pooling, and providing up to 300 spaces at iPark, 1305 Union Tpke. in New Hyde Park, enabling commuters to catch bus service along Union Tpke. or meet up with carpooling buddies.

Speaking for a group of local residents, Santo Cipolla is asking the Sewanhaka Central High School District to revisit a 28-year-old policy that allows one community to attend any of the five district high schools, including Floral Park Memorial High School.

“It was a policy that was created to desegregate South Floral Park and a portion of Floral Park called Jamaica Square,” Cipolla said at a school board meeting last week. “It is our belief that there is not equal access to the schools and violates the equal protection clause under the Fourteenth Amendment.”
