Holzkamp Joins County Planning Federation
Last week Glen Cove Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp joined elected officials from Nassau County's three townships, the City of Long Beach and 64 villages in signing on with the newly created Nassau County Planning Federation. The organization, which seeks to strengthen ties among various governments and facilitate the sharing of information to address planning practices and policies, was formed under the guidance of the Nassau County Planning Commission. Mayor Holzkamp said, "Neighboring municipalities often work on similar projects, such as downtown revitalization or the placement of cell towers. The federation will open the lines of communication and allow governments to work together to achieve the same goal-improving the quality of life for our constituents." Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi said, "The Planning Federation will put us all on the same page toward creating more affordable housing for workers and seniors and an improved transportation system in the Nassau Hub. Together we will ensure that Nassau County remains the attractive, desirable place it is today." May Newburger, the former supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead, is the director of the federation. Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto, Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray, North Hempstead Supervisor John Kaiman, Village Officials Association president Anthony Panzarella and Long Beach City Manager Glen Spiritis were among the officials joining the federation.
