The mayor of Glen Cove is concerned that last week's Record Pilot cover story, which reported on both the potential waterfront development as proposed by Glen Isle and the city council's approval of a draft general master plan for the City of Glen Cove was potentially confusing. He stated that he and the city council need to work on a way to communicate to the public the various "parallel projects" they have going on in Glen Cove.
To offer clarification along these lines, when we wrote that the city has been reaching milestones for waterfront development, we were reporting on separate, related issues that the city is working on - the waterfront environmental impact research and the general master plan, which also has its own environmental impact research. These are issues that reflect separate but related aspects of proposed development policy in Glen Cove. The waterfront plan and its Final Scoping Document involve the waterfront proposed by Glen Isle. The master plan and its environmental review involve general city development policy, which also affects the waterfront and all development, which has been on moratorium since 2006.
