"This Summer we celebrated community ...

This Fall we get to work!"

Greetings Neighbors,

 

Good Day. Hope all is well. Thank you for an amazing Summer in Belmont Lake Estates. We kicked it off with a Swearing-In Ceremony for our new Executive Board on June 21st and enjoyed two summer concerts on July 7th and August 18th. All three events had overwhelming support from the community with hundreds of attendees. We look forward to hosting more events for the community in the future.

 

Your executive board has been working hard to explore new ways to strengthen our organization, empower our neighbors, and develop strategies to achieve our near and long-term goals. As the oldest continuing historically African American Civic in NYS, we lead the way for our region. Today we are a diverse civic and we believe a clean and beautiful neighborhood is a monitored neighborhood and a monitored neighborhood is a safe neighborhood.

 

Together we established a community of excellence in unity, safety, and beauty, together we will take our neighborhood to the next level. Let's do our part to increase neighborhood amenities by developing underutilized green spaces, lower our cost of living by collectively purchasing goods and services, protect the home values by maintaining our assets, watch over the block by communicating with law enforcement when something is wrong, and beautify our homes by keeping our grass cut, bushes trimmed, and properties litter free.

 

Lastly once and for all Let's Fix Exit 36 by holding our county, town, state, and federal elected officials accountable and demanding the reinvestment of our tax dollars to enhance the Straight Path Corridor into a vibrant downtown from Southern State Parkway to Nichols Road with lush landscaping, upgraded building facades, and resources for our local businesses and homeowners.

 

As always we welcome your feedback and support. $25 annual household membership dues for July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023, are now being accepted via check mailed to: P.O. Box 2033 North Babylon, NY 11703 payable to the Belmont Lake Civic Association, via PayPal on our website: belmontlakecivic.org or at any of our general membership meetings.


                                                                              Sincerely,


                                                                              Travis Steward
