Garden City Reacts to St. Paul's Public Opinion Survey
James Carney, Eastern Property Owners' Association (EPOA) president, urged trustees to pay close attention to the St. Paul's survey results, which indicated that 40 percent of respondents opted for private use of St. Paul's with either condominiums and/or an assisted living facility. "This survey points out that residents, when asked, do not encourage going forward with a plan for a library/community center," he said. "Trustees should take these results to heart."
Board Resolves P-Zone Issue
After at least two years of deliberation, village trustees resolved the P-Zone issue during a June 3 meeting.

Village trustees unanimously passed Local Law 2-2004, which effectively deletes the P-Zone District, adds the CO-5 and R-T (Residential-Townhouse) Districts, amends the CO-4 District and defines open space and townhouse.
