This summer and fall Sustainable Long Island will collaborate with Saccardi & Schiff, Inc. the Elmont Coalition for Community Development, Town Supervisor Kate Murray, Councilman Ed Ambrosino, and other local leaders and community officials to undertake a milestone visioning process in Elmont. The visioning process will offer multiple opportunities for public participation including training workshops throughout the summer and fall, which will lead to a large public meeting where community members will be asked to envision the future development of Hempstead Turnpike.
Through the visioning process, the Town hopes to ensure that every resident of Elmont has an opportunity to contribute viable recommendations to address the issues that affect everyone who lives or works in the Elmont community. Specific targets will include improving Hempstead Turnpike; developing the community around the Belmont Racetrack; fostering economic development; facilitating community development; creating a range of housing options; and developing a unique look for Elmont.
The Elmont Coalition for Community Development was formed by concerned citizens and community & business leaders to coordinate and direct the enhancement of Elmont communities by developing a safe, fun, and environmentally healthy place to live, work, and shop for all of our residents.
