The Auburndale Improvement Association wishes to publicly thank the 111th Police Precinct for its recent actions to remediate problems with many of the auto dealerships and some of the other auto-related businesses along Northern Boulevard in Bayside. The police have also made many other attempts to address problems with these businesses over the years.
Our thanks also extend to Sen. Tony Avella, Assembly member Ed Braunstein and Council member Peter Vallone for their support in addressing all of the complaints that this civic organization receives regarding these auto businesses. We have been working for years trying to get these businesses to mend their ways and to become good neighbors to the residents of the area.
We have also worked with Community Board 11 and other civic groups including the Bayside Clear Spring Council headed by Mandingo Tshaka. You would think that with all of this community cooperation, conditions would improve. Unfortunately, problems still continue that adversely affect local residents.
It is not our goal to put any of these companies out of business. All that we ask is that they obey the law, that they follow conditions in their certificates of occupancy and/or variances and that they be considerate of the residents of the community.
This civic organization will continue to advocate for the residents and cooperate with city agencies and elected officials in trying to resolve these issues.
These auto-related businesses are not worlds onto themselves.
They are part of the community and must act in a responsible manner that shows respect for the residents who live near these businesses.
