Please consider becoming a member. It is important for our prosperity and growth. Always remember whether you work, live, or both in Stewart Manor or Floral Park, this is our neighborhood. What we do as a Chamber or individual business reflects on to our street and throughout the community. Keeping our store looking inviting and our avenue clean and charming will help keep our merchants vital.
In the past couple of years we have successfully worked with both municipalities to upgrade our sidewalks and install new lighting. In the recent year we have participated in the beautification of Covert Avenue, moved some merchant parking meters from the front of our stores, added a parking spot, changed meters from 12 hours to 2 hours, hanging flower baskets, fall cornstalk decorations, wreaths for all our members’ store fronts, garland and lights on our light poles, new garbage cans, attend village meetings to bring merchants up to date on village items, supported merchants with any problems, and supported new businesses.
Each year we organize the “Street Fair” in an effort to have residents become familiar with Covert Avenue. Raffles are sold in all participating stores and offices to help defray the cost of this event. The winners of the raffles are given couchers in the amount of $25.00 to be used at member stores as an incentive to familiarize them with local merchants. During the holiday season we sponsor the Christmas Tree Lighting and this year we decorated Covert Avenue. The response from our residents and the Village Officials has been positive.
