Meeting to Highlight Practical Ways Community Character Is Being Preserved in Hamlet of Oyster Bay

Come the meeting below to learn about positive measures to preserve community character that have been implemented in the unincorporated hamlet of Oyster Bay that could be applied in Glenwood Landing and Glen Head.

Save the Jewel By the Bay in cooperation with
The Town of Oyster Bay

In 2005, this community called for a moratorium to protect the Hamlet of Oyster Bay Residential Community from the demolition of homes, the subdivision of residential properties, the building of over-sized homes on sub-standard lots, and the cutting down of mature trees within this historic community. Since that time, much has been accomplished through the spirit of cooperation between the Town of Oyster Bay, Save the Jewel By the Bay, and Hamlet residents.

Come and hear about the legislative changes that have resulted from the moratorium, including:

· the creation of new Zoning Laws unique to our Hamlet
· the new Town-wide Tree Preservation Ordinance
· an update on where we are now
· a look at what is being considered for the future

Hofstra University will also present an Historical Perspective of Oyster Bay
