Vote on Parking Garage ‘Stricken’ From Last Week’s Agenda

On Wednesday, June 23 the Town of North Hempstead board held a hearing in front of an overflow audience to continue discussions on the establishment of a waterfront business district. The draft legislation, which was proposed by Councilman Fred Pollack, was to cover the Port Washington waterfront in two segments. The north segment, known as zoning district-section 1, would cover waterfront activities from west of Sunset Park south to Dolphin Green. The south portion known as zoning district- section 2 would cover lots presently occupied by the Port Washington Yacht Club. After a lengthy hearing the board unanimously adopted two resolutions: 1) the creation of a new waterfront business district and 2) excluding section 2 pending further discussions. The possibility remained that both sections might be consolidated in the waterfront district at a later date.
