The Great Neck Water Pollution Control District (GNWPCD) was awarded a grant of $50,000 from the Nassau County Community Revitalization Program. The grant will enable construction projects to make the district’s administration building at 236 East Shore Rd. compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

“The district would like to thank the Nassau County Community Revitalization Program and Legislator Ellen Birnbaum for working to secure this grant on behalf of district residents,”
said GNWPCD Commissioner Deena Lesser. “Thanks to Legislator Birnbaum’s contributions, we will be able to make sure the district’s public building is able to accommodate the physical needs of all district residents.”

The grant will fund the reconstruction to the district’s administration building, including the addition of a concrete ramp to make the building handicap-accessible. In addition to the ramp, the grant will also help fund construction on the building entryway, doors and sidewalks to ensure ADA compliance.

“Everyone in the community should feel welcome and be able to conduct business with the district,” said GNWPCD Chairperson Jerry Landsberg. “The commissioners are proud to announce this grant will allow greater community participation by all Great Neck residents.”
