The Last Chapter at the Landfill Begins
Calling it "the last chapter in the landfill story, and it's a long story," Town of North Hempstead Supervisor May Newburger last week announced the beginning of work to close the L5 Landfill in Port Washington. Projects already completed around and on the Morewood property on Hempstead Harbor are the capping, closing and remediation of the L4 Superfund Landfill, the construction of a state-of-the-art transfer station, bluff stabilization to critical areas of the property, the addition of an award winning golf complex and a nature trail.
Traffic Is the Topic at CLC
The Manhasset Community Liaison Committee played host to Town of North Hempstead Supervisor May Newburger, Nassau County 6th Precinct Inspector George Morrish and Deputy Inspector Tom Carroll at its Nov. 17 meeting. CLC President Brian Vincent expressed disappointment at the small crowd in attendance because the topic was traffic. "There's no one in Manhasset who hasn't complained about gridlock and other traffic problems," he said. In his introduction of the guests, Mr. Vincent said that Plandome Road in Manhasset is 2500 feet in the heart of the town. Between Colonial Parkway, Orchard Street, Bayview Avenue, Park Avenue, Manhasset Avenue and Northern Boulevard there are five traffic lights. "It might be time for a traffic survey. The holiday season is coming and we remember the gridlock of past seasons. It has to affect businesses in town. We've asked our guests to help us decide what can be done. Both May Newburger and George Morrish are people we can turn to."
