Castro Suggests 'TOB Become a CLG'
Bernadette Castro, commissioner of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation urged the Town of Oyster Bay to become a Certified Local Government (CLG) as she spoke on April 13 at a meeting of the Main Street Association held in the Doubleday Babcock Senior Center. Commissioner Castro is very involved with preservation and has been active in working with the Long Island North Shore Heritage Area planning commission. Attending the meeting was LINSHA co-chair Lori Bahnik. Ms. Castro said "LINSHA is creating a common thread, a wonderful story line that runs through the 64 municipalities on the North Shore of Long Island. We are currently contacting all 64 municipalities about the plan. They have to approve it. It's voluntary and is for preserving the heritage of Long Island. It has ideas for those communities who want them: ideas that are offered by professional planners. The plan comes with potential grant money for municipalities along the heritage area."
