Announcement in PDF Format.


Our next Civic meeting will take place on February 21st as it serves as a perfect forum to discuss about issues pertaining to our community in order to ensure the best for our families, neighbors and friends. The Locustwood / Gotham Civic Association represents over 1,500 homes at the north-western corner of our great community of Elmont and all business from the Queens Border to Elmont Road on Hempstead Turnpike. In the spirits of our former “Long Island” President Theodore Roosevelt, the Civic has always “speak softly but carried a big stick.” It is our opinion that actions speak louder than words. Standing the test of time, the Civic has always worked hard to protect and maintain the highest level of community standards and working to maintain the social, economic and civic status of the community. As our community grew and the individuals who call Elmont home changed, many has forgotten or are not aware of one of the oldest civic association. It is up to all of us to continue for future generations to protect what we call a suburban community.

The Civic understands that we all have busy schedules to keep. It is often hard to find that free time to volunteer for the community. However, there are times it is necessary to help preserve the quality of life of our neighborhood. Keeping true to our by-laws, we shall always remain non-partisan, non-sectarian, non-profit and perhaps more important during these times: non-political. It is important for everyone to be informed, and to work together to resolve the issues that affects our families, neighbors and friends. Together we can make Elmont the best place to live anywhere. Do not always depend and expect everything from others. Paraphrasing another former and great President, John F. Kennedy: Ask not what your community can do for you, but ask what you can do for your community.

We expect to see greater involvement and participation in the months ahead. Attending our next meeting on February 21st at 7:30 P.M. at the Elmont Public Library is the first step in being proactive in our community. Bring your family, neighbors and friends. United, we stand to protect the voice of the people, the true sense of democracy,
