The Port Washington Voice would like to extend our thanks to the community of Port Washington and surrounding towns for your tremendously positive response to the formation of our new citizens’ group and to our petition against the proposed four-story, mixed-use rezoning of Main Street. Signatures against the rezoning are still being gathered and will be presented to the town early in the New Year. A link to the petition is available on our website.
We are a grassroots group of local residents, who have become increasingly concerned about a series of developments and projects that have been proposed in Port Washington over the past several years. These concepts, including important aspects of the newest Model Blocks Project, threaten the scale, sense of place, and the quality of life in Port Washington. Our organization is not against change - just the kind of new developments that would render our neighborhoods unrecognizable to us and indistinguishable from other newly built towns. Join us at our inaugural meeting at the firehouse on Haven Avenue on January 14 at 10 a.m. Membership is free.
We ask that the town going forward actively seek the input of the residential community “early and often” in any planning process and craft solutions that complement and sustain Port Washington’s unique character. The Port Washington Voice is committed to working with the town to make certain that the views of our community and neighbors are represented in a fair and transparent manner.
