Solving Hamlet Parking Problems
Oyster Bay Civic Association President Marie Knight is chairing a committee to find solutions to the parking problems in the hamlet. She said the work is being done by the OBCA, the Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Oyster Bay Main Street Association. She said the OBMSA took the lead on Townsend Square, and the OBCA is taking the lead on the implementation and enforcement of the parking hours working with the town board, the Department of Public Works and the 2nd Precinct Police Department.
Oyster Bay Chamber Changes
The Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce has had to adjust to changes this year. The office itself has had three locations over the past year and most recently, they have had a change in their officers. Larry Nathanson of Appliance World has resigned from his newly elected position as president and Tom Vieweg, of South Street Café, the chamber vice president has stepped up to become the president. And, the new board was inducted at their Feb. 5 meeting at the Homestead Restaurant which closed and has re-opened as La Piatta, an Italian restaurant: another change in the hamlet as new owners took over the business.
