Roosevelt Street Residents Want New Deal on Stop Signs
A public hearing was held to discuss the stop sign situation on Roosevelt Street/Lincoln Place prior to the Glen Cove City Council regular meeting on July 24. Councilwoman MaryAnn Holzkamp presided over the meeting in the absence of Mayor Thomas Suozzi. As is customary when any topic related to vehicular matters is the focus of debate, a large number of people attended the meeting. The majority of opinions offered was in favor of leaving the "stop" sign currently on Roosevelt Street while supporting the placement of another one on Grant. Everyone speaking agreed that the "right of way" confusion caused by the intense intersection at Cottage Row was also a source of major concern.
Piloting the Future of Glenwood Landing's Waterfront
On July 18, residents and business owners from the Glenwood Landing community were joined by neighbors from Glen Head and Sea Cliff for the first in a series of meetings to focus on a vision and plan for the properties along the area's waterfront. Of paramount concern is ensuring public access to the waterfront while harboring sustainable economic development in harmony with the environment. This concept has been espoused with success by Mayor Thomas Suozzi and his administration in Glen Cove over the past seven years in the effort to cleanup that city's waterfront.
