Activists to Revisit Elevator Issue
A discussion about whether to build an elevator in the Village Hall building continues to bring some publicity to the Village of Roslyn. At a January public meeting, advocates for disabled people spoke out in favor of such an elevator, one that is also supported by Mayor Janet Galante. Attempts to get a vote on funding such an elevator went nowhere, but those same advocates are promising to show up at the board of trustee's Tuesday, April 3 informational meeting. Robert Schoenfeld of East Meadow, a member of Disabled in Action of Metropolitan New York, has hinted that if nothing is done at the April meeting, then legal action against the village may be in the offing. It is not known if the elevator issue will be taken up at that meeting.
Window Restoration Begins
The Village of Roslyn, along with the 1895 Grist Mill Committee, has begun a program of restoring the windows in the Ellen E. Ward Memorial Clock Tower. The oak and pine windows on the 160-year-old structure listed on the National Register of Historic Places have badly deteriorated due to years of moisture infiltration.
5K Race Through Roslyn
The Roslyn Hilltop Educational Foundation is holding its First Annual 5K (3.1 mile) Run/Walk on April 22. The race course begins at Roslyn High School and travels through the Villages of Roslyn and East Hills, and is being professionally started and timed by the Race Management Team. Timing will be done both manually and by computer.
