Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi is pleased to report an update on the rehabilitation of the Cedar Swamp Road entrance into our community. The Cedar Swamp Revitalization Project began in 2007 as a joint study between Nassau County and the City of Glen Cove. The study included an extensive public involvement process, done through a series of workshops and public meetings sponsored by Nassau County and the City of Glen Cove. Hosted by Mayor Suozzi and the former County Executive Tom Suozzi, these meetings were well attended by residents, stakeholders, local and county staff and a team of consultants. The ideas and feedback of the participants were utilized in order to ensure a conceptual plan would reflect broad community input.
