MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT 2011

Today’s economy has not left Glen Cove untouched. However, signs of life are obvious in downtown Glen Cove. New businesses have opened, our downtown events have taken off with incredible energy, and the downtown looked better than ever this past year.

This effect is the result of the countless hours of time donated by the Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District Board of Directors, our members and volunteers. Guiding them all is the Downtown B.I.D. staff: our Executive Director, Francine Koehler, and our Executive Assistant Mary Jirsa.

The B.I.D. has continues to serve as an advocate for the business and property owners and residents of downtown Glen Cove. Regular meetings with the Mayor and attendance at City Council, Planning Board and other agency meetings as necessary have resulted in many issues being addressed and resolved.

Several beautification projects took ugly, overlooked areas and landscaped them back into attractive spots. New holiday lighting increased the brightness of downtown during the dark days of winter. The nicer we make downtown look and feel, the more people will want to be here, and to return. Bringing people downtown is key to attracting desirable new businesses and retaining existing business.

Supporting our downtown community through events that make Glen Cove the place to be also makes Glen Cove stand out on the map. Downtown Sounds on Friday nights in the summer has people thronging the streets. Cruise Night has grown exponentially, bringing people downtown on Thursday nights, normally an off night. Several big, new shows and festivals have also helped to make a name for Glen Cove and its downtown.

To close, I would like to thank our many past and present Board Members for their donated countless hours of service. Our members and our volunteers are the backbone of our programs; they get special thanks for their extraordinary efforts. And finally, the assistance provided by the City of Glen Cove and our other partners and sponsors has made our efforts to date a success. On behalf of our grateful downtown community, please accept my thanks.

The website NeighborhoodScout released its list of the Top 100 Safest Cities in the U.S. for cities with populations of more than 25,000 people. Glen Cove ranked 12, one spot higher than Greenwich, Conn. and one behind Sammamish, Wash.

If you missed the Retro Futura tour this summer, starring  Howard Jones, Midge Ure,  and Katrina from Katrina and the Waves, I only have one thing to say to you: You screwed up. Big time. This lineup will set the bar impossibly high for '80s tours in the future.

Katrina Leskanich opened the show and immediately showed the audience two things. First, her voice is still as strong (stronger maybe) than it was in the '80s. And second, and most important: 'Walking on Sunshine' is to Katrina as 'Melt With You' is to Modern English -- a hit, but hardly a good representation of what the band is all about. And I mean that in the best of all ways. Her music is definitely more thoughtful that than bubble-gum hit. And I'm looking forward to hearing more of what she has to offer.
