12/11/12 Manhasset Park District Elections: The election resulted in 403 to 160; an overwhelming election of write in candidate David Paterson over incumbent Bernard Rolston.
A "Transarent" orgnaization has a high level of openness - making its meeting dates, times, places, as well as acccessibility to meeting agenda's summaries and budgets open to the public.
A "Non-transparent" organization is one that attempts to hides its agenda's, meeting, and planning with the general public, where finding out information is intentionally or unintentionall difficult or obstructed. For years, candidates for MPD have reaised the need for increased Transparency, but little gets done after the election.
Only after this open letter severely criticizing MPD's lack of transparency (secrecy and outdated website) , has MPD finally begun working on a new updated website.

9/19/12 Apple Bank Withdraws Request Variance to Expand Parking Lot. The Apple Bank BZA application for proposed parking lot expansion into the established 30ft buffer zone to the neighboring property (covered by the existing Restrictive Covenant) has been withdrawn by the bank after last week's 9/19 BZA public hearing.
The portion of the Apple Bank's application for their requested variance for the non-conforming existing insufficient number of parking spaces in their current lot remains in the BZA process.
The very important heart of the issue is that the Town of North Hempstead must uphold the existing Restrictive Covenant on the Apple Bank property and deny the current BZA application. If the Town takes ANY OTHER ACTION, it will give a loud and clear signal to all Town of North Hempstead residents that Restrictive Covenants are meaningless. That will fully collapse all efforts made to date at the Village Bath/ Belanich Property. The Greater Manhasset area civic and resident support outside the Strathmore Village area that had been given to the Town's Property Zoning Change and its current Site Plan at the Belanich/Village Bath property were all heavily weighted/based upon the Restrictive Covenant being in place for that Property. Absent the Restrictive Covenant, there is absolutely NO civic or resident support.
Mangano Police Precinct Consolidation Plan:
9/13/12 Two Desk Officers Restored: Great News- We discussed at the 9/12 GC meeting sending formal letter to NCPD Brass and County Executive our objection and concern about the fact that their commitment (at the GC June 27, 2012 meeting) to increase to TWO desk officers had not been fulfilled. Having only desk officer was creating chronic problems of delayed or no answered calls to the 6th Pct policing center. It negatively impacts important non-emergency police services in our neighborhoods. As we know true emergencies are always to be called into 911.
Our NC Legislator Judi Bosworth was already well on top of this matter and advises that, as of last night, the police union, County Executive, and NCPD brass have resolved the problem. The policing center is once again staffed by two officers. An important exercise because now they know we are watching and we will not accept less than we were promised. While the minutes aren't out yet, I wanted to alert civic leaders to this update; our letter is no longer necessary, but our vigilance in monitoring the policing center needs to continue. Thank you Judi Bosworth!
7/1/12: County Police Dept transition - consolidation of 3rd and 6th Pct began. 6th Pct facility at 100 Community Drive Manhasset; 516-573-6600 becomes a staffed community policing center with limited services avail. Highway Dept as well as other NCPD special units have moved into the Community Drive facility. Full NCPD precinct services now provided at 3rd Pct 214 Hillside Ave Williston Park N.Y. 11596; 516-573-6300. All neighborhood patrol sectors in both pct areas (cars/officers on the street) remain unchanged.
Emergencies: Always call 911.
