For Immediate Release
Subject: Suffolk County downtown revitalization funding for a Northport Information Booth
Contact: Village Clerk Donna Koch 631-261-7502 ext: 0
Northport Village Deputy Mayor has released the following statement:
The Chamber of Commerce has discussed putting up an information booth or kiosk for much of the time that I’ve been a member of the Chamber’s board. Several years ago I thought that this might be a project to do through village government. Steve King, a member of the Architectural & Historic Review Board (ARCHEs), and another resident, James Murray, designed a great building that plays off of traditional Northport architecture, including the old Ice House that was on Main Street below Woodbine. The ARCHEs approved the design but for various reasons, including lack of funds, the project never moved along.
Early this year Dan and Lauren Paige of the Northport Arts Coalition (NAC) approached me to say that Suffolk County was having another round of Downtown Revitalization grants for small projects and they thought a kiosk would be good. I told them about the idea Steve, James, and I had worked up and they said 'let's do it!' And so we did, bringing in the Chamber of Commerce as partners. Village Trustee and Parks Commissioner Damon McMullen worked with Debi Triola to find the best site for the booth. Throughout the process, Mayor George Doll encouraged the work and helped to keep things practical. Northport architect Alex D. Latham of ADLIII will provide the construction drawings.
With help and guidance from Village Clerk Donna Koch, Debi Triola, Ron Iannacone, and Dorothy Walsh of the Chamber of Commerce, and Dan Paige, wrote and submitted the application.. Legislator William Spencer pushed for it. Now, the County’s Downtown Revitalization Citizens Advisory Panel has recommended funding for it along with other projects in the county, and County Executive Steve Bellone will be submitting it to the County Legislature for approval.
The information booth will be by the entrance to Northport Park, just off Main Street, close to the village dock. It will provide information to residents and visitors about what is where in Northport, upcoming events, local organizations, and Northport history. We believe that this information booth will benefit both our residents and businesses and make Northport an even more enjoyable place to visit.
Thank you Doc Spencer, County Executive Bellone, and members of the Advisory Panel for your support. Thank you, too, to Steve King, James Murray, Dan and Lauren Paige, Debi Triola, Ron Iannacone, Dorothy Walsh, Alex Latham, Donna Koch, George Doll, and Damon McMullen for your work in moving this project along.
Tuesday evenings in August 6-9 PM. Outdoor dining, antique cars, live music!
Antique car owners that intend to include their vehicle in the Northport Harbor Family Nights event are reminded of the following:
- All cars must be registered, inspected and insured and their drivers licensed.
- Enter the event from the corner of Main Street and Woodbine Avenue and head east on Main Street, no earlier than 5 PM..
- Park only where instructed by police or Chamber of Commerce personnel.
- All vehicles are subject to search.
- Vehicle admission will be first come, first served. When the police and chamber personnel decide that the area for these cars is full, no more will be admitted.
- All vehicles MUST remain until the event is over AND the police determine the street is clear of pedestrians. This may not occur until 9:30 pm OR LATER.
The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) is suing Huntington to recover $270 million in property taxes paid since 2010.
If successful, the lawsuit is projected to result in:
- 15% increase in Town property taxes
- 60% increase in Northport–East Northport school taxes.
The Town and the School District are fighting in court, but the legal challenges could take years to resolve. The battle is costly and the results uncertain. We have another option. The Governor and the State Legislature are considering restructuring LIPA.
Help us send the message that any LIPA legislation must settle these onerous lawsuits and protect Huntington taxpayers. Please act by going to the Town of Huntington website and sign the online petition. Also e-mail the Governor and State Legislature.
Call the Governor’s Hotline at (855) 693-8690 and tell Governor Cuomo that the Town of Huntington has kept its commitment to freeze the assessment on the Northport Power Station and now LIPA/National Grid must also live up to its pledge and continue to pay its taxes. Tell the Governor, this issue must be resolved, now and going forward, in any legislation to restructure LIPA.
Six months have passed, since Hurricane Sandy racked havoc on our community. The Village Highway Department picked up and disposed of 2500 tons of debris. At this time the Village is no longer picking up hurricane Sandy debris. All property owners should follow normal yard waste pickup: tied and bundled four foot lengths weighing less than fifty pounds which will be pick up by our regular yard waste collection service.
