President Walter Mugdan called the meeting to order at 8:05 P.M. A motion was made, seconded and unanimously adopted to waive reading of the minutes. (Mr. Mugdan noted that the minutes were available for review on the Westmoreland website.)
Walter Mugdan read Gary Savage's Treasurer’s Report indicating that the balance-on-hand was $19,429.08 as of March 16, 2015. A motion was made to accept the Treasurer’s report. The motion was seconded and the report was unanimously approved.
Old Business –
Memorial Day Parade is coming. The theme is the 50th anniversary of the Viet Nam War. There will be military groups participating and the parade Grand Marshal will be Dr. Loree Sutton.
43-20 Glenwood: Walter Mugdan contacted the owner and architect and encouraged them to show the plans. They complied, and everything was within the parameters of the deed restrictions. [Note: in late April what was supposed to be a renovation and expansion of the house that previously existed on this parcel appears to have been largely demolished and new construction is taking place. While still complying with the setback requirements in the Westmoreland covenants, this may constitute a violation of the NYC building permit. Several neighbors brought this to the attention of the Association. Walter Mugdan called 3-1-1 to report the possible permit violation.]
The Participatory Budget vote will be held throughout the district. The closed voting place will be the Douglaston/Little Neck library. Voting will be from April 11-19 during regular library hours.
Some time ago a "Slow Zone" proposal for the Westmoreland area was presented by Walter Mugdan and rejected by the NYC DOT. However, since the new speed limit of 25 mpg was started this Spring, the issue is moot.
NEW Business –
CERT – Helena Barsky spoke – CERT is recruiting new members. There will be a training program conducted by NYC first responders to get the new recruits up to speed.
