Letter: Exciting Launch of Model Blocks

Residents For A More Beautiful Port Washington, The Greater Port Washington Business Improvement District and Model Blocks partners are pleased with the positive response received to date on The Model Blocks Project proposed for the first four blocks of Main Street, centered around the LIRR station. Moving forward, we will improve our streetscape, beautify open spaces, create plaza areas for the community to gather, create small, modernized and affordable apartments for our younger generation, turn vacant storefronts into vibrant shopping and dining destinations, incorporate design guidelines that bring back Port’s historic charm, repurpose dilapidated buildings and reorganize existing parking.

Fifty-eight comment cards were collected at the public meeting on November 17 (43 were in favor of the project, ten were opposed and five had no position). We will be using the coming months to answer questions raised, meet with various constituencies and adapt and fine tune plans accordingly. As part of that process, a “Frequently Asked Questions” page will be added to Residents For A More Beautiful Port Washington’s website in the coming weeks. If you did not attend the meeting, a copy of the presentation is available at the Port Washington Public Library. To register your questions and comments, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We thank the community for coming together to help shape a vibrant future for Main Street, and we look forward to continuing the process.
