Huntington, NY - October 12, 2018 - At its October 10 meeting, the Huntington Town Board launched its new Adopt-a-Corner beautification program, encouraging community participation in beautification efforts across the Town, and scheduled public hearings for the October 23 and November 8 Town Board Meetings.
The Town Board approved the launch of Adopt-a-Corner, which allows participants the ability to adopt, beautify and maintain a select piece of property for a term of one year with an option to renew for an additional year.
“Adopt-a-Corner is another new quality of life initiative that provides a benefit to our residents at no cost to our taxpayers,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, who sponsored the resolution creating the beautification program. “This provides a creative outlet for residents, business owners and other organizations to display their pride in the Huntington community in their own, unique way. I’m excited to see how Adopt-a-Corner will visually transform our town.”
Adopt-a-Corner participants can choose from a list of available locations established and maintained by the Town’s Director of General Services, Andre Sorrentino, who will also review and give final approval on Adopt-a-Corner applications, proposals for landscape design and signage at the adopted locations. Selected participants will be required to sign a Hold Harmless and Indemnification Agreement and provide required insurance.
