Long Island Residents Plan Area's Future

A master planning project in Port Washington is employing community visioning techniques to create the first-ever plan for the community's future development.

"The torrential rain had left much of Port Washington without electricity, but the crowds still came on that June night to Paul D. Schreiber High School.It wasn't a rock concert, protest or even graduation that drew nearly 200 people to the school. It was a meeting about urban planning."
