'Parking Wars,' Stop Signs and More

Some highlights of the latest Town of North Hempstead meeting.

If you missed the latest Town of North Hempstead meeting, here are some of the highlights:

  • The Town board voted to set a public hearing for January 8 about setting a full stop on the northbound and southbound sides of Onderdonk Avenue in Manhasset where it intersects with George Street.
  • The Town received a $20,000 gift from Hybrid Films, LLC related to its role in A&E's show Parking Wars. Supervisor Jon Kaiman said the Town has been asked to be featured on another season.
  • A donation from the estate of Anne Luise Buerger of $24,000 was made to the Town animal shelter.
  • The Manhasset Park District was acknowledged during the Town meeting for its work during Hurricane Sandy in the cleanup effort. Councilwoman Anna Kaplan thanked the district and Supervisor Kaiman said that the group "worked hand in hand with our crews."
  • The Town board voted to change the October 23 meeting that was scheduled for next year to October 22 instead since Town meetings are typically on Tuesday.
  • The Town board voted to allow the EOC to have its party for children at the senior center in Manorhaven on December 21. Councilwoman Dina DeGiorgio said the group needed a space for this party and that this will come at no cost to the Town.

Folks have not come to realize what will happen once and if new construction along Main Street in P. W. starts. Think we have headaches now wait and see what the future holds for residents. The entire proposal to so call rezone parts of Main Street was handled in a shamefull manner. I am ashamed at local residents for not speaking out in larger numbers. I do realize that the Town tried very hard not to listen to the common sense of residents.

Conducting the affairs of the Town Board has always been shameful under Jon Kaiman , did you know on his first board meeting the first law passed by Kaiman was to raise his own salary by 33 percent ? The law was described as Legislation to increase salary of 'certain town employee.'

So true. The Art center deal The Roslyn country club deal. Change of zoning for apple shopping center Change of zoning for Main Street Few examples of deals made publicly one wonders what deals are being made behind close doors

Main Street is run down and needs help. I support the overlay zoning.

If we are talking about the apple shopping center on Northern Blvd. what did everyone think that was going to be eventually. That same area in the rest of the miracle mile is parking lot. Should it of been a bird sanctuary? To say every change is bad is wrong. I do have issues with other things in the TONH but something like that parking expansion should not be lumped into the mix. I look at it larger parking lot more tasex they pay.

The apple shopping center owner received approval to increase the size of his building , because of the change of zoning of the parcel Next to it . Such a major change was granted to a rich and connected individual over the objections of every homeowner in the area . In the meantime , average homeowners are harassed and tortured by town if a fence in their backyard is 6 inches too high . There is two standards in place in North Hempstead Those who pay can play , the rest of us are on our own .
