Fence, Path Head Back to Recreation Commission for Further Study
Garden City Recreation Director Kevin Ocker enabled residents to take a closer look at the black, estate-style fencing proposed for the fields at St. Paul's during a brief presentation Dec. 2 at village hall. The fence, which received mixed reviews by both residents and board members, is just one feature suggested in Phase III of the St. Paul's Open Space Improvement Project. The cost of the five-foot fence, which would run along Stewart Avenue and a section of Rockaway Avenue, would be directly offset by a $90,000 commitment Senator Kemp Hannon was able to secure when the Senate and Assembly passed the 2004-05 state budget. "The village would be reimbursed for this particular item," Village Administrator Robert Schoelle, Jr. said.
