Letter: Open Dialogue On Model Blocks

The Model Blocks is a concept with many elements that require feedback from the community. Our overall goal is “Smart Growth,” by creating a more vibrant, walkable, charming, pedestrian oriented Main Street with increased strolling, human interaction and shopping.

At this time, the general consensus from the community is that Main Street has too many vacant storefronts, merchants lacking pedestrian traffic are going out of business, sidewalks are in need of repair, gardens and planters are sparse and there is a need to create more charm and character. Most importantly, parking and traffic issues have to be addressed. None of this will be accomplished if we do nothing.

The Chamber of Commerce and Greater Port Washington Business Improvement District join Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington in asking the community to become part of that process. It is important to maintain one conversation in order to shape a proposal over the coming months that the community at large can embrace.

Now is the time for dialogue. Email your thoughts and comments to any one of our organizations or our elected officials:

As the Long Island Index reported on 11/29/11, “Smart growth is about creating enchanting places, where homes are built on human scale, shops and restaurants are a stroll away, and car parks are tucked out of sight, leaving space for parks, plazas and public squares. These places are not eyesores, they’re beacons. To see them is to glimpse a saner and lovelier future for our island. Are there obstacles? Always. But obstacles can be overcome, when people see something worth working for.”

We invite you to work with us, because we believe Main Street Port Washington is worth working for.
