Curran, Mangano And Community Restore Local Parks

September 4, 2012

Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook-14th A.D.) today announced a community initiative to restore Baldwin’s Milburn Park, led by the efforts of Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, the Baldwin Civic Association and local residents. The Park Cleanup Day is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 20.

“I am partnering with a dedicated organization and devoted individuals who have worked tirelessly on behalf of the Baldwin community. County Executive Edward Mangano, the Baldwin Civic Association and I will be sponsoring a Park Cleanup Day on October 20 at Milburn Park to recognize the commitment these individuals, and others, have made to keep their community clean and pristine for neighbors and visitors alike,” said Curran.

Milburn Park’s restoration will include:

  • Graffiti removal;
  • Weed whacking;
  • Grass re-seeding;
  • Painting trash cans and bridge railings; and
  • Path, bridge and sign maintenance performed by the County Parks Department.

“With support from the community, we will make this park and neighborhood one of the cleanest and most vibrant communities on Long Island. A clean environment supports safe streets and can invigorate our local economy,” said Mangano.

“County Executive Mangano and I look forward to joining our friends and neighbors in restoring a remarkable public space. Our community enjoys these parks as gathering places, venues for events, family outings and as sanctuaries in which to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. I feel I have become an important part of the Baldwin community, and I will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of the families there,” said Curran.

“I also am pleased to announce that Sanitary District No. 2 will join the effort to clean up our great community. Sanitary District No. 2 will provide brooms, bags, racks, shovels, district volunteers and a garbage truck to remove the collected materials,” said Curran.

Local residents and businesses who would like to learn more about participating in Milburn Park’s cleanup or any other local neighborhood cleanup program are encouraged to contact Assemblyman Curran’s office at 516-561-8216.
