We have the Beach to Bay Civic, Eastholme Civic Association, Friends of North Park, High Rise Association, North East Bay & Canal Civic Association, West End Neighbors Civic Association & the Westholme Civic Association.
What other area on Long Island has so many civic associations!! Do we care about Long Beach or what?
Save the date – Spread the word. The Westholme Civic Association is hosting a City Council Candidate Forum. Come learn about the candidates. Have a question for them? Come next Thursday and you will get an answer. Thursday night, October 8th 7PM at the VFW Hall (675 W Park Ave, Long Beach, New York 11561).
Westholme Civic Association is questioning the renderings for this structure that’s being built at 535 West Market Street: “When are two foundations not two separate structures? When they are connected at the roof line……”
Oh boy does that look ugly. Anyway, this lot in question was for:
Expanding Use for a sub-division into two building lots and the construction of 1 two (2) family dwelling and 1 one (1) family dwelling at 535 West Market Street, Long Beach, NY also known as Section 59, Block 21, Lots 60-62 on the Nassau County Land and Tax Map.
It was denied, yet it looks like a ‘double house’ is allegedly being built anyway. I’m confused. Here is what the lot currently looks like:
UPDATE: I think I figured this house out. You’re supposed to cut it out and fold:
One of the significant side-effects of Sandy has been an enormous impact on our home and flood insurance rates and, for that matter, our ability to get insurance at all. We on the South Shore have gone from being desirable clients to being condemned as uninsurable by most of the traditional insurance companies. In addition, The National Flood Insurance program, The Biggert-Waters Act (2013), and The Homeowner’s Flood Insurance Affordability (2014), have made understanding and properly purchasing flood insurance nearly impossible. Compounding the problem are brokers and agents who are too confused, too busy, or too heartless to provide us with the information and education we need to make good decisions about what to do.
We need help. That is what our session is all about. We will provide you with the information and education that you need to create a strategy for getting proper coverage and the best rate available. Presentation will include…Insights and Strategies for your Flood and Homeowner’s Insurance
The state of the Homeowner’s Insurance Market on Long Island and how you can navigate it.
Changes in The National Flood Insurance program, the impact, and what you can do about it.
What to expect from your Broker/Agent and why you deserve it.
The future of our Insurance “Problem.”
The presentation will be as brief as possible to allow for your important questions. The presentation should be approximately an hour followed by a Q & A session.
The next meeting of the Westholme Civic Association will be held this Thursday, April 30th at 7PM in the VFW Hall at 675 W Park Ave. This month we will hear presentations on the budget from both the school district and the library. So please take the time to come down and learn where each of these organizations would like to spend your money in the upcoming year and how they will pay for it.
We have also extended an invitation to each candidate for this May’s election for the school board and library board. Please come down and learn more about their vision for how and where these institutions should be managed and heading.
Bring a friend, bring a neighbor, we hope to see you there.
On Thursday Oct 2 at 7:00PM The Westholme Civic Association will be hosting a candidate forum for the New York State Assembly, 20th District. This meeting will be be held at the VFW Hall 675 West Park Ave.
We are fortunate that both candidates running for this office have accepted our invitation. In addition both candidates for the Long Beach City Court Judgeship will be in attendance to speak of their qualifications.
Please think about the issues that are important to you, your family, our community and our great state and come find out where the candidates stand on these issues. The candidates will be taking your questions so please come prepared with questions.
We asked each to provide a short bio/profile for us to share with you. Listed below are the bio/profiles for each candidate. The bio/profile was provided by each candidate.
A good number of our members have asked about the new Sewer Lateral Service Plan being offered to the residents of Long Beach and in all honesty we probably have as many questions as you do.
We have arranged to have a representative from the City of Long Beach as well as one from Brady Risk Management present to answer any questions you may have regarding this program.
The Meeting will be held on September 22 at 7:30PM in the VFW Hall on Park Ave.
While there will be an open Q&A session, we ask that you forward any questions you have to firstname.lastname@example.org. Since most residents will have similar questions and concerns, allowing us to organize them beforehand will hopefully save time and get 90% of your questions answered and the remaining can be asked/answered in the open Q&A session.
The Westholme Civic Association will holding their monthly meeting on Thursday, June 5th at 7PM in the VFW Hall (675 West Park Ave). At this meeting we are fortunate to have the American Red Cross give their “Be Red Cross Ready” presentation.
While the Red Cross and their partners are committed to lending a helping hand to those in need, assistance may be delayed in times of disaster. That’s why it’s important for your family to Be Red Cross Ready by completing three easy steps:
Get a Kit
Make a Plan
Since we feel this presentation is relevant and important we are inviting anyone reading this message to join us at our meeting and learn how to Be Red Cross Ready.
