Town of North Hempstead and Village of East Hills Partner To Make Road, Sidewalk, And Park Improvements

East Hills, NY——The Town of North Hempstead has agreed to make improvements to Harbor Hill Road this spring including the construction of a new sidewalk. The goal is to make the area safer for pedestrians, especially children, who are walking to or from the Park in East Hills.

“Councilman Dwyer and I are proud to work with Mayor Michael Koblenz and his board to make the park at East Hills an even safer, more family-friendly destination,” said Supervisor Jon Kaiman. “The overall project will include a special blend of safety protections as well as beautification efforts.”

“East Hills residents are also our residents,” said Town Councilman Tom Dwyer. “Working together through this intermunicipal agreement will save tens of thousands of tax payer dollars while making the community safer.”

The Town presently has over 60 inter-municipal agreements between the town and local villages, schools and special districts. This agreement will be similar in nature to the other inter-municipal agreements. The cost savings are realized because the Town does the work itself and only charges the village the exact costs to the town.

Mayor Koblenz added, “East Hills is very fortunate to have the close cooperation of both Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Councilman Tom Dwyer. I thank them for arranging for the major improvements and agreeing to pursue a major project in our community.”

For information on the improvements to the Park in East Hills, please call 311 or visit www.northhempsteadny.gov.
