Downtown Project Announced


The Village of Lindenhurst held a press conference to announce the start of several projects in the downtown. One of those projects being the construction of bulb-outs on South Wellwood Avenue. The Village will be working with Greenman-Pedersen Inc. and using Suffolk County Jumpstart Grant funds to construct several bulb-outs along South Wellwood Avenue. The bulb-outs will improve pedestrian safety and create a more walkable downtown.

It was also announced that 30,000 were donated to the downtown businesses by Village resident and businessman, Franklin Cruz. These masks will be distributed for use by employees and customers.

Trustee RJ Renna stated, “The funding from Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone will greatly assist with ongoing improvements to our downtown.” Mayor Lavorata noted that, “This is one more step forward in the revitalization of the Village’s downtown. We look forward to putting these improvements in place with the funds from the Jumpstart grant.”
