You Tell Us: Big Ideas for Making Greenport Better

With so many issues in town, locals are bound to have their own big ideas for bettering their community. Let's share them.

Like every community on Long Island, Greenport has its share of problems.

Officials are constantly trying to balance the growth of full-time business with drawing tourists and outside vendors to high-profile events like the Tall Ships and Maritime Festivals — trying to make these events a win-win for everyone each year.

But even with the boost of seasonal events, businesses from restaurants to art galleries still struggle to make it year-round in the village. low-cost housing and the use of Mitchell Park are also often up for debate at village hall.

It's times like these that people get to thinking about the home they love so much, coming up with their own ideas, be them wild stretches of the imagination or practical fixes that are altogether doable, to keep the Greenport thriving into the foreseeable future.

So let's hear them.

In the spirit of putting the local dreamer and the civic leaders on the same plane, we'd like to give all locals the opportunity to share their big ideas for Greenport. In this forum, no idea should be shot down. Instead, let's gather as many suggestions as we can so we can later narrow the list down to the 10 most popular ideas for the Greenport community.

We can't wait to hear what you come up with.
