ENCA Raises New Street Signs
East Norwich community organization representatives and business people gathered Wednesday morning, Nov. 17, on the corner of Johnson Court and Oyster Bay Road to watch the completion of East Norwich Civic Association street sign project. People watched as Town of Oyster Bay workers took down traditional street signs and replaced them with large painted signs sponsored by local businesses and community organizations. The 32 signs have been sponsored by 25 local businesses and community organizations.
EN Civic Queries AvalonBay Project
The East Norwich Civic Association invited representatives of AvalonBay Communities to come to their Oct. 28 meeting to discuss their proposal, for a 300-unit apartment house to be built on the former Hallock Chevrolet dealership location. The over-5-acre site, now owned by Island Properties, is under contract to AvalonBay Communities. East Norwich residents attended the forum held by the Oyster Bay Civic Association for AvalonBay in September and made arrangements for the October meeting in East Norwich. In talking about AvalonBay, the developers said traffic leaving their apartment complex in the morning would be heading south - to the Syosset Long Island Rail Road Station and to the LIE Expressway to get to work. That means they will be driving through East Norwich since the unincorporated village is cut in half by Route 106 - that increased traffic is of great concern to the residents.
