Notice of Revised meeting Date
Recently Revitalized Williston Park Civic Association
Hosts Neighborhood Forum
September Meeting to Address a Number of Residents’ Concerns
The recently revitalized Williston Park Civic Association announced that its first-ever, “Neighborhood Forum” will take place at the American Legion Post 144, 730 Willis Avenue on Monday September 17th at 7 p.m. The event is open to anyone living or working in Williston Park.
After input from more than 60 residents at a well-attended general meeting in May of this year, a slate of topics was drawn up by the organization’s steering committee for further exploration. The evening’s program will include:
· The formation of standing committees to address Membership, Budget and Finance, Public Safety and Zoning, Community Service, Fundraising, and Communications and Networking
· Re-Establishing a “Welcome Wagon” for new residents
· Discussion regarding ongoing traffic and public safety concerns on village residential streets
· A short presentation by 615 Willis Ave. LLC, the partnership seeking to develop the vacant lots at 615 Willis Avenue. The presentation will be followed by a moderated question and answer session for company representatives to directly address the concerns of local residents. Note the Association takes no position on this matter neither opposing or endorsing the proposal .
Interest in joining the association has been notable, with more than 50 new members since April, and 60% of current members having already renewed their next year’s membership. Association President, Bob Mitchell, elaborated, “The May meeting saw a lot of new energy, new ideas and new people but they requested that our next meeting be after summer vacations were over. That’s why this fall summit is open to members and non-members alike. We want input from all our neighbors.”
The September 17th Forum will begin at 7 p.m. and includes refreshments, time to “meet and greet,” and even a 50/50 raffle. Participants are encouraged to arrive promptly as presentations begin at 7:30 and full capacity is expected. For more information regarding the Summit or membership in the association, please call (516) 345-0650.
We are a group of concerned citizens who want to help our community flourish. There are many issues to be addressed and many activities that we can do in order to help others.
Every added member makes us stronger, both in numbers, and in the resources each new person brings to our meetings.
To protect the rights and interests of legal residents and property owners of the Incorporated Village of Williston Park.
To work with officials to ensure an open and honest government and to limit and reduce taxation.
To disseminate information gathered in order to keep residents informed.
