Legislature Approves Funding for Herricks
(MINEOLA, NY) – The Herricks Public Schools will receive funding from Nassau County as part of a Community Revitalization Project (“CRP”) to pave the parking lot on the northwest side of the Herricks Community Center located in New Hyde Park. The request for funding was unanimously approved on Monday, October 20, 2014 during a full meeting of the Legislature. Legislator Ellen W. Birnbaum (D-Great Neck) worked tirelessly with the Nassau County Executive’s office and the Herricks Public Schools administration to see that this project received funding through an inter-municipal agreement between Nassau County and the Herricks Public Schools. This important project will improve public safety especially for the senior citizens who enjoy activities and lunch as part of the senior nutrition program held at the Community Center.
“The Herricks Community Center is a busy, public meeting space which hosts so many wonderful programs,” said Legislator Birnbaum. “By paving this parking lot, there will be greater accessibility and safety for all who utilize the Center.”
