GLEN COVE DOWNTOWN BID AND GLEN COVE YOUTH BUREAU JOIN HANDS IN GIVING NEW LIFE TO THE DOWNTOWN BREWSTER STREET GARAGE

Glen Cove, N.Y. - “The revitalization of the Brewster Street Garage has been on the BID agenda for quite some time. It was when the BID thought to include the city of Glen Cove Youth Bureau that they finally received the approval to move forward with this project”, said Brian Mercadante, Co-Chair of the BID Capital Improvements Committee. Jacquelyn Yonick, the coordinator for the Youth Bureau, responded positively to the project. “This gives them a sense of community pride while they’re accomplishing something for their first job experience” said Yonick.
In an effort to brighten up and make the garage more user friendly for visitors in the downtown area, the Youth Bureau started painting all the wayfinding signs on one side of the garage red, and on the other side blue, while stenciling individual letters per floor. Four short weeks later the Youth Bureau completed this project, giving new life to the Brewster Street garage.  “The Youth Bureau’s fine work surpassed our expectations, they certainly have much to be proud of and have given a great deal to the Glen Cove community”, said Patricia Holman, Executive Director of the BID.
The Glen Cove Downtown BID donated the stencils and materials, Aboff’s Paint generously donated the paint, and the City of Glen Cove Summer Youth Employment Program provided the labor.
“The Glen Cove Business Improvement District, the City of Glen Cove Youth Bureau, and a local business got together and made something nice happen in the community” said Brian Mercadante.

Downtown BID Commissions New Botanical Design

GLEN COVE DOWNTOWN BID COMMISSIONS NEW BOTANICAL DESIGN AND IRRIGATION SYSTEM

Glen Cove, N.Y. - The Glen Cove Business Improvement District donated the sprinkler system at the Brewster Street garage, which has been installed by Grennan Irrigation Inc., in part with a project to re-landscape and beautify the area. “This was an important project for the BID as it is a heavy traffic area, and we wanted to make it look nicer for those driving and walking by”, said Brian Mercadante, Co-Chair of the BID Capital Improvements Committee. While the sprinkler systems were being installed, Cabo Landscaping Inc. was working on a new landscaping design that consists of hydrangeas, junipers, white pine, and many other botanical arrangements along the Brewster Street Garage.
 “For many years, the BID has been denied a sprinkler system due to a lack of a water source, but after much determination, the current administration finally approved of the sprinkler system and now the BID can get back to work revitalizing the area”, said Patricia Holman, Executive Director of the Glen Cove Downtown BID.  The Downtown BID has planted many gardens throughout the walkways and has funded the maintenance of these gardens. Throughout the seasons, the BID will be planting new grass seeds and different flowers for the fall, summer, and spring. “Now that the water is in, let’s start making it beautiful”, said Brian Mercadante.
