Plaza Looks Towards Affordable Housing
As the Village of Great Neck Plaza considers affordable housing (and inclusionary zoning) for its C2 zoning district, Mayor Jean Celender and the board of trustees have proposed extending the temporary building moratorium in order to allow more time to study the issue and seek public comment. At the Aug. 17 board meeting, village consultants Saccardi & Schiff, Inc. presented their study for the C2 District that encompasses properties zoned for multiple-family dwellings along Great Neck Road and Cuttermill Road adjacent to the LIRR tracks. With the moratorium probably extended to the end of the year, village officials will consider zoning that allows a greater density bonus incentive for developers who will include affordable housing.
At the Great Neck Park District
Due to the extreme heat we've been having of late, the park district is extending a special courtesy to park district residents who are not seasonal pool members. Now in effect, residents who are not pool members can present a valid park card and pay a daily fee to gain entrance to the pool for a day. Weekdays, a child's admission is $5 and adult admission is $7. Weekends and holidays, children are $8 and adults, $9. Have a great time, enjoy, and cool off!
Great Neck Weekend Softball 2005
The setting for Opening Day of the Great Neck Weekend Softball 2005 season couldn't have been more dignified and graceful. Forty players lined the basepaths of Kings Point Park field #3, to hear local opera singer Sandia Ang do an amazing rendition of the National Anthem. With only an orchestra of gentle breezes through the branches of the surrounding woods, Sandia's melodic and soothing voice perfectly reflected the soul of this glorious spring day. We were all very lucky to experience her performance. With a pun intended, it really started off our season at a high note.
