Completing Valley Stream’s streets

A group of Valley Stream residents are currently working on a proposal to make the village’s roadways safer and more efficient for all users, like in this artist rendering.

The group also looked at the 2010 census numbers and saw that 71 percent of households with a 11580 zip code have a person that is either older than 65 or younger than 19, which is who a Complete Street would benefit most, Sabatino said.

A Facebook page was created in order to gain feedback from residents. People can make recommendations and submit ideas, questions or criticism about the proposal at www.Facebook.com/Valley Stream Complete Streets. Once resident feedback is collected, the group will create formal proposals to present to the village board. Sabatino said he envisions the proposals being funded through the village’s road repair program or supplemented by financing from state and federal levels.
