Welcome to the 5 Towns Civic Association! Updates and calls to action will appear in RED on this site. Please check in regularly.
Wikipedia defines the Five Towns as “the villages of Lawrence and Cedarhurst, the hamlets of Woodmere and Inwood, and The Hewletts” (villages of Hewlett Bay Park, Hewlett Harbor, and Hewlett Neck, and the hamlet of Hewlett, along with Woodsburgh). An easier way to say it? We are the Five Towns; you and us.
5TCA was born out of necessity, because the quality of life in our neighborhood is about to change for the worse through overdevelopment; loss of our defining green spaces and property values, while unquestionably increasing traffic, flooding and probably taxes. The addition of ‘Town 6’ on the 100+ acres bought from the Woodmere Club will be an unmitigated disaster for the Five Towns. United as a community, we can stop the present threat of overdevelopment. Information will continue to be provided through various channels, ranging from electronic messages and social media, to newspapers and television interviews.
We will not focus only on problems, but also on the incredible achievements that define our amazing neighborhood. Going forward, we hope to give public recognition to members of our community who define us, extend merit based scholarships for school or camp to our young leaders, and to provide feedback to our elected representatives in our Village(s), Town(s) and Capitol Hill.
Thank you for showing interest and support.
