Demolition Precedes Progress
Work is progressing at the Western Waterfront in the hamlet of Oyster Bay. The next thing residents will see is the demolition of buildings J and I. New buildings will go up that will look very similar to the current ones. The corrugated steel will be replaced with pre-engineered structures using metal siding possibly with insulated panels inside. They will look similar to what they look like now, said a Cameron Associates engineer - the company that has been working with the town on creating the Western Waterfront area.
Town Moving Toward LWRP
The Town of Oyster Bay has been in the process of developing a Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan (LWRP) for many years. The benefits to a community to preparing a LWRP include clear direction, technical assistance, state and federal consistency, and financial assistance, including state and federal grants. It can significantly increase a community's ability to attract private and public resources to advance the community's vision that will take best advantage and respect the unique cultural and natural characteristics of its waterfront.
Summer for children is a time to unwind from the pressures of the school year and to explore things they might never get to do during the rest of the year. The summer camp at the Waterfront Center in Oyster Bay helps children try things that are not typical to an inland summer camp. Campers get to open their minds by learning things not traditionally taught in school about our local ecology.
