Vision Holds Board Meeting in Downtown Kings Park

Vision Board and staff were out in downtown Kings Park at their most recent Board meeting, hosted at the popular Main Street restaurant RED to hear an update on revitalization activities and the status of new sewer infrastructure.  

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone shared the work the County has been doing to support the Kings Park downtown as well as other initiatives throughout Suffolk.  Town of Smithtown Councilman Tom Lohman updated the group on the proactive work in Kings Park through their Master Plan and the Townwide comprehensive plan.  Kings Park Chamber President Tony Tanzi and Civic Association President Linda Henninger spoke of their partnership with the community to move forward a shared agenda to help fill vacancies, bring in sewers and get the kind of redevelopment that is in line with the desires of local residents and businesses. 

Vision has consistently supported Main Street initiatives like Kings Park and played a role through their planning process and follow up advocacy in Albany for the $20 million investment in sewers.  These sorts of partnerships are what is needed to get downtown projects off the ground.   

Stay tuned for future updates from the Town of Smithtown, Suffolk County and the local Chamber and Civic.
