Spring has sprung and with each springtime there is new life brought to Earth in the form of blooming flowers, plant buds, trees and greenery everywhere. 2019 promises to be a major year for this Village as we continue to see our downtown develop into a new landscape which is both business and family friendly.
My family continues to thank all of you for the kind messages, thoughts, flowers and of course prayers for First Lady, Helen, who continues her health ordeal. We thank you and believe me, we feel them!
Some of the projects that have been completed are as follows:
- The west side of the Charles Cowan Marina which required road repair, new bulkheading and boardwalk repairs.
- A new parking lot at the corner of West Hoffman and South high Street is now open for public use. We are in the process of having the area metered and a limit of 2 hours for parking will be strictly enforced.
We have also completed repairs on the Shore Road Marina and are actively seeking additional funding to expand the damage area to the bend at Shore Road. The funds use for these projects were the result of FEMA disaster relief funds along with funds delivered by our NY State Officials in the Senate and Assembly. Thanks to Sen. Phil Boyle, Sen. John Brooks and Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre for their assistance and their continued promises to help us try and finish the job!
I would also like to remind everyone of some of the events that will help usher in the Spring. They are as follows:
- Lindenhurst American Little League Parade on Sunday, April 14th
- Lindenhurst National Little League Parade on Sunday, April 14th
- Rainbow Senior Center Open House on Thursday, April 25th
- Annual Springfest from Friday through Sunday, May 3rd, 4th and 5th
- Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 27th
- Annual Fire Department Parade and Drill on June 1st
Finally, to all of you who participated in the Walkability Study, we appreciate your input. All of the data has been compiled and will be used to make recommendations to the contractor GPI as we move further on with the development of a Comprehensive Plan. This plan is expected to be completed by year’s end and will be available to our residents.
It is important to our administration that we continue to hear the ideas, suggestions and concerns of residents. If you have something you would like to share with the Village Board, please contact Village Hall.
Along with the Board of Trustees, our Administrative staff and all the employees of the Village, we look forward to continuing to serve the Village to the best of our abilities for the betterment of Lindenhurst!
Mayor Michael A. Lavorata
