Automatic Water Sprinklers

As a reminder, Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 resulted in two consecutive odd days. All residents with automatic sprinklers should remember to reset their clocks at this time to comply with the village’s lawn watering regulations. As a further reminder, the last day for lawn sprinkling is Nov. 30.

Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday, Nov. 7. Residents are reminded that clocks should be set back one hour.

This is also a good time to check your smoke and carbon monoxide batteries. In fact, it is recommended that you install new batteries twice a year to be sure they are always working properly. If you do replace your batteries, please be aware that there is a box for recycling batteries in the Business Office at Village Hall.

Make a Difference Honorees

The untiring work of volunteers makes a difference in the lives of many individuals in our community. The Town of Hempstead is filled with many citizens who dedicate their lives to helping others.

Whether it’s collecting more than 100,000 schoolbooks for needy children in Thailand or donating one’s salary to a foundation supporting pediatric cancer or organizing countless annual Thanksgiving food and Christmas toy drives, these residents are dedicated to the betterment of our community. The untiring work of volunteers has a positive influence on the lives of many individuals in our community, from a teacher who donated her kidney to her student to save his life and a woman who housed and nurtured a young girl from another country while she endured several facial reconstructive surgeries.

On Thursday, Nov. 25, Thanksgiving Day, our family will be coordinating a program out of our home delivering turkey dinners to homebound senior citizens living throughout Nassau County. We expect to be preparing and delivering 250 meals that day, so we truly need your help!

These items can be dropped off at our home at 35 Maxwell Road, Garden City. Please call us as soon as possible to coordinate a convenient drop-off time.

 

Letter: The Race Between Nicolosi and Ra

Friday, 29 October 2010 00:00

I belong to neither the Republican Party, nor the Democratic Party.  When I make a selection in the voting booth, I make choices based on a candidate’s credentials rather than a candidate’s party affiliation. This election, I have paid particularly close attention to the Assembly race between Patrick Nicolosi and Ed Ra. I have read all the materials on each candidate, and have watched the debates between the two. I can unequivocally state that Patrick Nicolosi is the right candidate for this Assembly seat.

 

Letter: Public Comment on Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Friday, 22 October 2010 00:00

(Editor’s Note: The following letter was sent to Mayor Robert J. Rothschild).

I have been watching with interest and anxiety over the past few months the news about your plans to push for a referendum on the demolition of St. Paul’s School.

As someone who has lived in Garden City for 35 years, and who is bringing up a young son – hopefully to understand the value of true beauty, architecture, craftsmanship, tradition, and the meaning of history in shaping our lives – it disturbs me greatly to see you leading the effort to tear down such a remarkable emblem of that beauty and tradition of Garden City.

Parking Field 7N Reconstruction Project

The village began the reconstruction of Village Parking Field 7N (located opposite Village Hall between Stewart Avenue and Seventh Street), three weeks ago. Construction hours are between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. One section of the parking field will be closed at all times during the construction. The contractor has begun work in the center section of the field behind Key Food. The construction area is fenced and available for deliveries only. Customers are encouraged to continue to support these merchants and park outside of the construction areas within the field or on Seventh Street.

Forecasts of heavy rain and high winds for yesterday and today have caused the contractor to suspend paving in the field until Monday, Oct. 18. Weather permitting, the paving should be completed on Monday, Oct. 18 and the striping on Tuesday, Oct. 19. Phase I will be completed and Phase II will begin on Wednesday, Oct. 20, by closing off the westerly section of the parking lot.

The entire project is anticipated to take eight weeks to complete and the contractor and village will be working to maintain safety and minimal inconvenience.

 

Letter: Former Garden City Mayors Recommend Trustees Authorize Bond Referendum on St. Paul’s

Friday, 15 October 2010 00:00

Since 1993, the village boards of trustees have been trying to find a suitable use for the St. Paul’s Main Building at an affordable cost to the taxpayers. A quick look at the village website will show you the list of studies that were done over the past 17 years which sadly have produced no satisfactory result.   

The main goal of the purchase of the St. Paul’s property was the acquisition of the much-needed playing fields. Although it was hoped that the main building could be converted for public use, in 1993 there was no such plan in place. In fact, preserving the green space and fields was the primary purpose of the purchase. Preserving the building for public use was to be done if feasible. And we have spent the last 17 years studying the feasibility with no solution.

By Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010, the parking field striping shall begin and on Thursday, Oct. 14, Phase I should be completed. The westerly section of the parking field will be closed to begin Phase II.

The entire project is anticipated to take eight weeks to complete and the contractor and village will be working to maintain safety and minimal inconvenience.

 

Letter: Who Should Pay for the Rehabilitation of St. Paul’s?

Friday, 08 October 2010 00:00

The Committee to Save St. Paul’s and the Garden City Historical Society presented their plan to the Garden City Board of Trustees on June 29, 2010. It was also distributed to some of the property owner’s associations. The idea is for the village to turn over the building to the Conservancy. The Conservancy could then raise private money and grants to rehabilitate parts of St. Paul’s. In addition, for the initial renovation the Conservancy would issue 15-year bonds paid for by lease payments made by the village. In other words, the taxpayers of the village would pay for the rehabilitation through increased taxes.

Please Do Your Part to Keep Garden City Pedestrian Friendly

Residents are reminded that it is their responsibility to maintain the shrubs and trees on their property to assure that branches do not overhang and obstruct the Incorporated Village by doing your part to keep Garden City a pedestrian friendly community.

Outdoor Dining: A Big Hit

It is wonderful to see so many Garden City residents as well as visitors to our village enjoying alfresco dining on New Hyde Park Road, Franklin Avenue and Seventh Street. This year there are 31 businesses, which have permits. There is no doubt that alfresco dining is an overwhelming success. I encourage residents to come early and combine shopping with dining outside at their favorite place. The outdoor dining will continue through the month of November.
