Like many communities on Long Island, Huntington has great things to offer residents, but could always use improvements.
Schools continue to provide students a solid education, but the tax cap and unfunded mandates are making things difficult. Burglaries seem to have become a bit more commonplace.
And while there are success stories around Huntington, vacancies, such as the former Blockbuster store on Jericho Turnpike or the old Dairy Barn on New York Avenue, still exist and the need to attract new business continues.
It's times like these that people get to thinking about the home they love so much, coming up with their own ideas, whether they're wild stretches of the imagination or practical fixes that are altogether doable, to keep all of Lindenhurst great into the foreseeable future.
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 Huntington. 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 a short list of the most popular ideas for our community.
We can't wait to hear your ideas. Please share them in the comments section, below.
