Tell Us: Main Street Beautification

What changes would you like to see?

North Hempstead's Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio are hosting a “Main Street Visioning” public meeting Thursday at Schreiber High School auditorium, 7 p.m.

Streetscape enhancements, and proposed zoning changes for Port Washington’s Main Street are the meeting's focus. 

Which has us wondering: Briefly leaving aside the proposed zoning changes in this discussion, what kind of beautification projects do you think would be effective in Port Washington? More frequent cleanups? Plantings to improve drainage and runoff from storms? Something else? Tell us in the comments.

Nassau Taxpayer you are correct with your views. At the meeting I tgried to find out why a large amount of information was not discussed. We should heard from property owners not store owners who mostly rent their store. All associated services(ie: Water, Sewage, Garbage, Gas,) which would see more burden was not discussed. I felt like this meeting was a shameful disgrace to the community. Tell us very little, do not give any idea what might happen if the proposal goes through. Handing out ANY piece of paper with a "yes" or" no": to be checked off was insulting to say the least.

Trash, trash, trash!!! That is my BIGGEST complaint about living here in this otherwise charming community. I've lived here now for nearly eleven years and I've never seen a more filthy, dirty, Main Street with litter always scattered everywhere. I definitely think 2 very important things need to be done here. 1. Institute a NO LITTERING mindset with the community. Beginning with our youngest children all the way through K-12. Also, kids learn how it's "okay to litter" by watching their parents litter. So many parents need to change their ways too, learning starts at home! I've witnessed many occasions of adults on Main Street or just around town littering right before my eyes. 2. Definitely there should be more city workers or someone patrolling Main Street picking up trash and debris scattered all over the sidewalks, gutters, and plantings, etc. Not just a few times a season, but FREQUENTLY! 3-4 times a week would be a good start... at least. This town has SO much potential for being so much more than it is... it is a great community with a nice diverse population. It would be so much nicer though if it wasn't a trash heap everywhere you turn. Bottom line though, people have to be educated that it is NOT OKAY TO LITTER! That is my two cents.
