Sunset Chapels Redevelopment Documents
The former site of the Sunset Chapels funeral home on the north side of Northern Boulevard between Plandome and Norgate Roads has been purchased and is the subject of plans by its owner, 1285 Northern Boulevard, LLC, to develop it as a site for the sale of BMW automobiles. The site consists of three lots zoned Business-A and one zoned Residence-C. It is adjacent to homes in the community known as Norgate at Manhasset.
At the meeting of the Town Board of the Town of North Hempstead on June 6, 2023, it considered the application of the owner for approval of a new declaration of covenants and restrictions covering the property and for site plan approval. The Board granted both applications.

Norgate Community Cleanup – May 3, 2014. Thirteen Norgate residents turned out to rake, clip, weed, mow, and meet with Town Councilwoman Anna M. Kaplan and Town Clerk Wayne H. Wink, Jr., who sponsored the event and provided t-shirts for participants and trash bags for the debris. The job of cleaning the entry to the community along Norgate Road took about an hour and a half. After a cold snowy winter and a rainy spring it was a pleasure to get outdoors on a sunny day, meet with neighbors and Town leaders, and really accomplish a needed task. Not pictured with the group is Erdal Can, who scraped, caulk cracks, and touched up the paint on the Norgate entrance pillars.
The Spring 2014 edition of the Norgate News. Among other items of interest, it covers:
-Our neighborhood Spring Clean-Up, scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd, from 10:30 AM to 12 Noon. Come out to spruce up Norgate!
