GWL Waterfront Condos: Key Document Now Online

In response to requests from the community, the Town of North Hempstead has posted on its website the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the apartment complex proposed for Hempstead Harbor on the Glenwood Landing Waterfront just south of the Power Plant.

The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) was posted earlier this summer, but access to both documents is necessary to fully understand how the environmental review of the project was conducted. Both reports are accessible at

The Glenwood / Glen Head Civic Association is grateful to the residents who requested electronic access to both documents and appreciates the town's responsiveness.

A hearing for a change of zone for the property from industrial use to multi-family residential use is scheduled for Tuesday, August 22, at 7:30 p.m. at North Hempstead Town Hall, 220 Plandome Road, Manhasset. Acceptance of findings made in connection with the FEIS also is on the agenda. The town must accept the findings before the addressing the rezoning application.

How this property is developed will affect everyone who lives in the North Shore School District, as well as those who live in Glen Cove, Roslyn, and all of Roslyn Harbor. It is extremely important for as many residents of the area as possible to attend the hearing to show their interest and to express their views. Call TNH to confirm the time and date of the hearing (869-7700). You also can ask where the matter appears on the agenda to give you an idea about how to schedule your evening. Written comments may be sent to TNH Supervisor Jon Kaiman, North Hempstead Town Hall, 220 Plandome Road, Manhasset, NY 11030.

A wealth of details, including maps of the site, the footprint of the proposed building, and the route of the proposed sewer line to Glen Cove, can be found at, a website recently launched by residents opposed to the project.

More information, including renderings from the FEIS, also can be found here at the Civic Spot (see Civic to Stress Open Space & Water Quality at Glenwood Landing Waterfront Hearing, July 16; Hearing Date Set for Waterfront Apartments, July 1; North Hempstead Accepts Environmental Impact Statement for Waterfront Apartments in Glenwood Landing, May 25).
