On March 24th, the HGCA’s very own Marie Dunker was awarded the TOB’s Women of Distinction award for her volunteer work.  As many of you know, Marie is quite involved in the community, both with the HGCA as well as other organizations.

Marie received her award in a ceremony at the TOB, along with the recipients in other categories.  Look for her plaque that now hangs at the TOB Town Hall the next time you visit.

Congratulations, Marie!

Left Turn Signal Installed

S. Broadway at Somerset Ave & Lewis St

In response to a request by the Hicksville Gardens Civic Association the NYS Department of Transportation
re-designed the traffic signal control located on S. Broadway (Route 107) at Somerset Ave and Lewis St.

Left turn and pedestrian crossing signals with countdown timers were installed at the marked
crosswalks making this a much safer intersection for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Proposed Development – 425 Jerusalem Avenue

By   May 12, 2012

The HGCA has been contacted by a law firm representing a developer with plans to sub-divide the existing dry cleaners located at 425 Jerusalem Avenue into a dry cleaners and nail salon.

A survey of the Block Captains in that area revealed that they did not see any negative impact resulting from the development and that position has been transmitted to the law firm.

Do Not Block Side Road Sign

South Broadway & Millwood Gate

millwoodgate_webIn response to requests by the Hicksville Gardens Civic Association and the Hicksville Fire Department the state recently painted a white box at South Block Side Road”.

A “spill back” situation was occuring at the intersection with vehicles blocking access and egress from Millwood Gate.  This was caused partially by the recent signal lights installed at the “5 Corners” intersection.  This not only caused a blockage at the location but also created a safety hazard by delaying the response time by local volunteer firefighters.
