Here is a brief update on some of the recent activities in New Hyde Park.
Marijuana Sale Restrictions in New Hyde Park Village
This past week the Village Board held a public hearing and amended the Village Code requiring any sale of marijuana or marijuana related products to be confined to the Adult Use Zone in the village if the sale of marijuana is legalized in New York State. Should the state legislature legalize marijuana, the village would not be permitted to prohibit its sale; we can however restrict where it can be sold under local zoning code.
We were informed last week that the road closure of Covert Ave originally scheduled to Start on January 29, 2019 thru February 2, 2019 was cancelled and rescheduled. We have been informed by 3TC that on or about Tuesday, February 5th, Covert Avenue will be temporarily closed between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue. The daily closures will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will end no later than Tuesday, February 12th. During the times that Covert Avenue is closed, two detours will be available to non-commercial vehicles. Southbound drivers on Covert Avenue will be directed to South 6th Street. Northbound drivers on Covert Avenue will be directed to South 8th Street. Flaggers and MTA police will be present. Please see the map for details. Commercial vehicles will be required to detour to New Hyde Park Road.
