As part of the ongoing initiative to revitalize Downtown Hicksville, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino invites residents to participate and provide comments on proposed traffic and pedestrian safety improvements at a public information meeting scheduled to be held on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020 at the Hicksville Community Center, located at 28 W. Carl St., from 7-9 p.m.
The meeting, hosted by Nassau County, will provide residents with the opportunity to view the presentation, ask questions and provide comments and feedback regarding proposed changes in the downtown area.
“My administration is working to transform downtown Hicksville into a vibrant economic center through the use of private sector investments, state grants and local infrastructure enhancements. Together, we will attract new jobs, create new housing opportunities and improve the accessibility and safety in the downtown area for all modes of transportation, from motorists to pedestrians to transit riders to cyclists,” Supervisor Saladino said. “I encourage residents to attend this public information meeting hosted by Nassau County as it is an excellent opportunity to share their desired vision for the future of our community. By working together towards a shared vision, we can transform downtown Hicksville into a vibrant community for millennials, downsizers, empty nesters and senior citizens alike!”
This will be the second public information meeting hosted by Nassau County regarding the revitalization project. The previous public meeting achieved great resident participation offering input on the proposed recommendations for Downtown Hicksville.
