Deputy Mayor Barbara Peebles engages the crowd at the 2015 Vision Long Island Conference.
Here at the City of Glen Cove we pride ourselves in being “large enough to serve you, but small enough to know you”. Our administration and staff are dedicated towards creating a business friendly environment throughout our City. Whether it is meeting with a proprietor of a potential new business or helping existing businesses expand, we are dedicated towards reducing red tape and spurring growth for all.
Over the past two years we have seen new business arrive and existing businesses expand. Since early 2014 we are proud to have welcomed over 45 new businesses which has created over 300 new jobs for our community. These new businesses include an eclectic mix of ethnic restaurants, shops, and professional services. New businesses are great, but we are just as fortunate to see many of our existing successful businesses expand into larger spaces right here in Glen Cove.
Glen Cove’s transit oriented residential development projects are finally moving forward, ensuring the continued growth of our business community. These projects will inject new energy into our downtown, providing new jobs and housing opportunities for our youthful generation. As these projects move forward, we expect to welcome many new and exciting businesses including interesting retail and entertainment venues.
In the coming weeks and months my office will be launching a Glen Cove Business Advisory Committee. This committee will work with our Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Business Improvement District to further develop our business development strategies. Stay tuned.
Barbara Peebles – Deputy Mayor
