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.
