Congratulations to our neighbors in Kings Park on being awarded more than $20 million in state and county grants to fund a long awaited sewer system and revitalization plan. The Fort Salonga Association is a proud supporter of the Kings Park Civic Association’s efforts along with the Kings Park Chamber of Commerce’s hard work organizing the community effort that resulted in these grants. We wish them the very best as the plans move forward.
Learn more about the grants and the plans from coverage of today’s press conference hosted by County Executive Steve Bellone.
The FSA’s Scott Paisley, Joe Stolfi, and Will Safer attended the press conference to hear Bellone, Town of Smithtown Supervisor Patrick Vecchio, KP Chamber of Commerce President Tony Tanzi, HP Civic Association Vice President Linda Henninger, and other speakers.
Bellone noted how important the local civics are to the health of the towns, and mentioned the FSA and San Remo civic specifically, in addition to the Kings Park Civic, which was a driving force behind the effort to secure the investment from the county and the state.
Joe and Scott congratulated Tanzi on his efforts, and Scott and Will had the opportunity to talk with Bellone, who spoke glowingly of Kings Park and Fort Salonga, how our towns are situated in such a lovely area with so much to offer residents. He also spoke of our proximity to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Stony Brook University, and how we are linked to Long Island’s science, engineering, and business future.
