Glen Cove is a place in flux. Former industrial sites are being cleaned up and repurposed, the downtown is hoping to attract new businesses to fill vacancies, and the ideological differences between residents and business owners who say they know what the problems are play out regularly in our comment streams.
It's times like these that people get to thinking about the home they love so much, coming up with their own ideas - be them wild stretches of the imagination or practical fixes that are altogether doable - to keep Glen Cove great into the forseeable future.
So let's hear them.
In the spirit of putting the local dreamer and the civic leaders on the same plane, we'd like to give all locals the opportunity to share their big ideas for Glen Cove. In this forum, no idea should be shot down. Instead, let's gather as many suggestions as we can so we can later narrow the list down to the 10 most popular ideas for the Glen Cove community.
We can't wait to hear what you come up with.
The city is doing its own collection of ideas, launching a website where residents and visitors can participate in a survey about shopping and dining downtown.
