Welcome to the Plandome Heights Civic Association (PHCA)!


Plandome Heights


Plandome Heights, incorporated in 1929, has since grown to 323 households including 1,000-plus total population.  The village boundaries are Village of Plandome to the North, Manhasset Bay to the West, Village of Flower Hill to the East, and the unincorporated hamlet of Manhasset to the South.  The majority of the Plandome Heights is within walking distance to the Manhasset LIRR train station.  Children in the village can attend the nationally ranked school district.  Plandome Pond Park and Plandome Heights Preserve on Manhasset Bay are but two of the many park-like settings throughout the village.



Plandome Heights Civic Association


Plandome Heights has always been a very civic minded village.  The precursor of our current civic association and the incorporation of our village began as the Plandome Heights Association.  In 1929, the community rallied to voice its concerns regarding two issues.  The first issue the Association addressed was objecting to development of apartment buildings on the land adjacent to Plandome Heights.


The second issue was objecting to formation of the Manhasset Sewer District.  The Plandome Heights Association protested.  While not opposed to sewers for the rest of Manhasset, Plandome Heights residents were opposed to the added taxation resulting from the sewers.  After the Town Board voted in favor of a one million dollar sewer district, Plandome Heights moved to secede and incorporate.  This led to other events and the Town Board moved to dissolve the Manhasset Sewer District: it could no longer finance the project based on the reduction in the sewer district’s assessed valuation.


Today’s Plandome Heights Civic Association was formed on July 20, 1943 and has served the community since that time in many important ways.  For a time the Civic Association became inactive, but it was reactivated in 2010 by a group of former Village Officials and concerned residents including Marion Endrizzi, Paula Abate, Mike and Jayne Knox, Roxanne Fitzig, Robert Timperman and Dan Cataldo.  Currently, there is one annual meeting held and members attend monthly meetings of the Council of Greater Manhasset Civic Associations.

2017 Annual Meeting


Plandome Heights Civic Association held its Annual Meeting on October 19, 2017 at the Port Washington Yacht Club.  Plandome Heights Civic President Marion Endrizzi opened the meeting addressing the 80-plus members who were present.


The agenda included presentations from five guest speakers including local civic leaders, including Council of Greater Manhasset Civic Associations President Richard Bentley, Manhasset Park District Commissioner David Paterson and Nassau County POP officer Steven Krukowski.  Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth was also in attendance.


Manhasset Park District Commissioner David Paterson provided an update on parking enforcement as well as plans to expand LIRR parking.


Officer Stephen Krukowski of Nassau County’s Problem Oriented Police (POP) Team spoke to members about underage drinking and drug use and how officials are addressing these problems, the need for more police presence in Manhasset, and traffic enforcement – particularly on Plandome Road.


Laura Curran (D-Baldwin) and Jack Martins (R-Old Westbury), in separate presentations, each spoke about their qualifications and experience that would make them a good fit for the position and addressed questions covering their positions on the Long Island’s water supply which is threatened by the re-opening of the Jamaica wells in Queens, county property assessments, and reopening the 6th police precinct including returning detectives and administration to the facility as well as repairs to the physical condition of the building. Both candidates agreed that they were fully committed to this restoration.


Council of Greater Manhasset Civic Associations President Richard Bentley provided an overview of various projects in the Manhasset area.


The event concluded with the election of new Board Members for the 2017-2019 term.  The Board includes:


President — George “Chuck” McCarthy
