Long Beach Residents AGAINST the House at 70 Roosevelt Blvd becoming a 4 Story Building [PETITION]

I was asked to share the following petition:

Hi Anthony,

The real estate developer has changed his proposal from several months ago and now is looking to erect a 4-story building at 70 Roosevelt Boulevard.  The height and size of the building on this small lot will continue to add to the overcrowding in Long Beach. The Zoning Board of Appeals meeting is on November 17 at 7 pm, 6thfloor of City Hall.

We have started a petition against the variances that they are seeking:  Long Beach Residents AGAINST the House at 70 Roosevelt Blvd becoming a 4 Story Building

FOLLOW UP: Dangerous crossing at Park Ave/Long Beach Blvd

Ok, so I got some updated information on the dangerous crossing situation at Park Avenue/ LB Blvd. This is regarding:

The person who wrote the original letter to Nassau County traffic department emailed, phoned, left messages, etc. Finally they heard back from the county! This is what they were told.

The county knows about the situation. They are probably six months away from even looking into it. They agree it’s  not an ideal situation, one that is replicated on many county roads. They cannot just simply change the timers because the equipment is so old, it can’t be re-programmed the way it needs to be. The system is so old, pressing the WALK button is actually useless because it says WALK every time anyway. They need to do a study because the last thing they want is for traffic on Park Avenue to be ‘backed up to Lido’.

I will provides updates on this as soon as I can.
