3/7/23 Board Reports 

Recreation Center

As we turn the clocks ahead this weekend, we are preparing for all of our incredibly fun and exciting Spring programs and activities at our beautiful Recreation Center. The Summer Recreation booklet is nearing completion, please be on the lookout. Paper booklets will not be mailed, copies will be available in Village Hall, the Recreation Center and the Library.


The Village continues to try to arrange a meeting with the MTA/3TC/LIRR and Nassau County to discuss the Tunnel Street Gate and our options. I will, of course, keep you updated. This week is the second week of the new LIRR schedule. Floral Park has several new timetables. Some new trains have already been added from Jamaica to Atlantic Avenue due to customer demand. Reach out to the MTA and let them know your thoughts.

As always, we encourage residents to reach out directly to the MTA with questions and concerns, as we have found this the most effective way of residents communicating with them. The MTA can be reached at contact.mta.info/customer-feedback or by phone at 516-203-4955 – this is an automated response, but you can ask for “more options” and then ask for “Comments and concerns” to speak to a person.
