Apple Bank Update 1/18/14:  In the dead of winter on 1/18/14, a saturday morning of a long holiday weekend, Apple Bank cut down every tree in the buffer zone. Did valid permits get issued? and if so, HOW and why? It needs investigation. Media coverage:

Manhasset Press: not available online

Manhasset Times (link to article)

9/19/12 Apple Bank Withdraws Request Variance to Expand Parking Lot. The Apple Bank BZA application for proposed parking lot expansion into the established 30ft buffer zone to the neighboring property (covered by the existing Restrictive Covenant) has been withdrawn by the bank after last week's 9/19 BZA public hearing.

The portion of the Apple Bank's application for their requested variance for the non-conforming existing insufficient number of parking spaces in their current lot remains in the Bldg Dept process and is expected to be granted.

The very important heart of the issue is that the Town of North Hempstead must uphold the existing Restrictive Covenant on the Apple Bank property and deny the current BZA application. If the Town takes ANY OTHER ACTION, it will give a loud and clear signal to all Town of North Hempstead residents that Restrictive Covenants are meaningless. That will fully collapse all efforts made to date at the Village Bath/ Belanich Property. The Greater Manhasset area civic and resident support outside the Strathmore Village area that had been given to the Town's Property Zoning Change and its current Site Plan at the Belanich/Village Bath property were all heavily weighted/based upon the Restrictive Covenant being in place for that Property. Absent the Restrictive Covenant, there is absolutely NO civic or resident support.



Spinny Hill Documentary. Two public screenings held on 2/15&23/12 @ Manhasset Library were a big success. The DVD is available for purchase on eBay from a reputable seller near $15.
