Legislature Approves Funding for Village of Great Neck Estates
(MINEOLA, NY) – The Village of Great Neck Estates will be receiving funding from Nassau County as part of a Community Revitalization Project (“CRP”) to improve streetscapes in the Village. The request for funding was unanimously approved on Monday, November 17, 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 Village of Great Neck Estates Mayor David Fox to see that this project received funding through an inter-municipal agreement between Nassau County and the Village of Great Neck Estates. Improvements which the Village of Great Neck Estates is planning to undertake with the funding, include the replacement of an ornamental iron protective fence on Clover Drive, LED lighting for the Village Hall pathway and trash cans throughout the Village.
“The improvements to streetscapes in the Village of Great Neck Estates will improve safety and add to the beautification of public areas” said Legislator Birnbaum.
“I, as the mayor representing all of the residents of Great Neck Estates, am most thankful for the efforts that Legislator Birnbaum has put forth to help with several much needed projects which will benefit our residents and our community” said Mayor Fox.
