What’s on the September 4th agenda?
- Resolution Granting Waiver of Off-Street Parking Requirements for the new Thai Restaurant @ 895 West Beech Street
- Bond Ordinance Authorizing Separation Payments to Employees in and for the City of Long Beach, Nassau County, New York, at an Estimated Cost of $6,650,000, and Authorizing the Issuance of up to $6,650,000 Bonds of Said City to Pay Part of the Cost Thereof.
- Resolution Authorizing the City Manager to Enter into a State Assistance Contract for a New York State Brownfield Opportunity Areas Program Grant. Legislative Memo: The City intends to complete a Nomination Study for an approximate 170 acres characterized with five potential Brownfield sites that are located within the City and incorporate the neighborhood of North Park, as well as part of the Westholme North neighborhood. Waterfront property = $$$ [see – The Forbidden Zone of Long Beach: A Photographic Journey.] This is actually quite interesting. I remember years ago with then-Nassau Executive Suozzi doing his photo opp next to the knocked down Long Beach Incinerator. There was plenty of talk about redeveloping that area. I heard about a marina, the Marriott Hotel, four large residential towers, seafood restaurants on Reynolds Channel, a sculpture garden, an amphitheater and a walk connecting all this to the tennis facility on the other end of the Long Beach Bridge.
- To replace railings destroyed by Hurricane Irene on the ramps at Grand and Lincoln Boulevards. 87 ½% of the cost to be reimbursed to the City by State and Federal funds. Are we going to lose more historical railing? [see – Historical Railing Requested By Historical Society and Opinion: Old Boardwalk Railing Revisited (Work being done in the name of job security?)]
- Resolution to Schedule the Second Regular Council Meeting of September for Wednesday, September 19, 2012. Second meeting?
- You cannot tell a lie and drive over 15mph in the Presidents: “Fifteen miles per hour. No person shall operate a motor vehicle upon any public highway or street of the city between Nevada Avenue and New York Avenue, both inclusive, excepting only West Park Avenue and West Beech Street; and upon East Pine Street between Neptune Boulevard and Curley Street and East Chester Street between Neptune Boulevard and Curley Street; upon Curley, Harmon, Clark, Vinton, Farrell, Barnes, Kirkwood, Heron, Boyd, Dalton, Kerrigan, Armour, Doyle and Forester Streets; and upon Cleveland, Harding, Mitchell, Belmont, Pacific, Atlantic, Coolidge, Wilson and Taft Avenues at a rate of speed in excess of fifteen (15) miles per hour.”
