NOTE: Our October General Meeting had guest speakers who will be on the November ballot for positions in the Town of Oyster Bay. Hicksville Gardens Civic Association DOES NOT endorse any particular candidate for office. We, as a local civic association, present candidates with a forum to share their ideas and to answer questions from the Hicksville community. The statements made by the candidates and presented in these forums are the candidates’ own and not an endorsement by us.
Invitations to attend our Meet-the-Candidates forum were extended to both the Republican and Democratic Town of Oyster Bay Election Committees. The Republicans responded that their candidates could not attend due to previous commitments, and asked if there was an alternative date for them to attend. Unfortunately, we were unable to secure our venue for another date as there were other events already scheduled.

The Nassau County Office of Community development has informed us of a hearing scheduled for May 5th that will cover the County’s Consolidated 5-year plan covering housing and community development needs along with a Strategic Plan for addressing those needs during the upcoming five-year period (FFY2015-2019). They are looking for input from all civics across the county.
More details regarding the hearing may be found in the letter issued to the HGCA. If you are interested in attending, let us know.
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.
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.
In 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.
