A Letter From Councilman Ambrosino

Dear Resident:

The cornerstone of representative democracy is the public participation of our fellow citizens.

As your representative on the Hempstead Town Board, I am proud to join my fellow Town Board Members to start the public hearing process on the proposed rezoning of Hempstead Turnpike. The first of several anticipated hearings will take place at Town Hall on January 24, 2012. The hearing will take place at 1 Washington Street, Hempstead, New York and is scheduled to begin at 10:30 AM.

I encourage your participation in the public hearing process. Your thoughts on commercial development, residential development, mixed use development, height restrictions, aesthetic issues and other zoning concerns are most welcome.

At the conclusion of the hearings, the zoning resolution will be drafted and submitted to the Town Board for a vote. I would like the proposed zoning to reflect the needs and desires of the Elmont Community.

I would like to acknowledge the efforts and hard work of the Elmont Coalition for Sustainable Development in the development of the Elmont Visioning Plan that served as the foundation for the proposed rezoning of the Hempstead Turnpike corridor. The Coalition has achieved its stated goal of developing a workable, forward-looking blueprint for Elmont’s future. I thank the individuals who have served the Coalition and for their collective work on behalf of the Elmont Community.

I look forward to forming and working with similar advisory groups in the future as we explore the potential of Belmont Racetrack and our other goals of sustainable growth for Elmont’s future.

I look forward to seeing you at Town Hall on January 24.

Best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Very truly yours,

Edward A. Ambrosino
Councilman 2nd District

Today, we are talking to people about sustainable economic development, because we think it's important to show support for key issues that affect our community - like places in the Elmont for young professionals to live, shop and be entertained; like keeping families closer together and rebuilding the economic and social pillars of the community.
