A community meeting about a program to revitalize a four-block area of Port Washington will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Port Washington Public Library.
Called Model Blocks, the program’s goal is to upgrade building facades and storefronts, encourage mixed-use development, improve and expand off-street parking and provide new open space in the area near the Port Washington Long Island Rail Road station.
The Town of North Hempstead, Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington and the Port Washington Business Improvement District are partnering in the program, which will seek input from elected officials, building owners, merchants, developers, special districts and local community groups.
The program will study ways to experiment with streetscape enhancements, traffic-calming measures and architectural guidelines to increase the area’s charm and character.
For more information, contact Mindy Germain, executive director of Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington, at 516-767-9151, or go online to pwresidents.org.
