The environmental and economic development group Sustainable Long Island said Monday it has moved from Bethpage into downtown Farmingdale, just off Main Street.
Founded in 1998, the group aims to help revitalize downtowns across Long Island. It advises elected officials and helps link communities to sources of funding.
The move by Sustainable Long Island to 399 Conklin St., is its first since 2005, when it moved to Bethpage.
”We couldn’t be happier with our move to such a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere like the Village of Farmingdale,” executive director Amy Engel said in a news release.
“Symbolically the new space provides sustainability elements that go hand-in-hand with the organization’s mission, such as a walkable downtown and transit oriented development.”
Sustainable Long Island also focuses on the redevelopment of brownfields, which are defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as land where development could be complicated by pollutants or toxins.
Engel was appointed executive director in November.
