STORM PREPARATION

During major snowstorms, the Village may allow parking in the Village’s two municipal garages at Plaza Centre and Maple Drive, provided you have a VGNP resident sticker or a VGNP Gargage quarterly permit. Please be advised that parking is prohibited in spots designated for Handicapped Parking (unless you have a valid handicapped parking permit), Village Officials and employee parking or Police Parking. Please call Village Hall at 482-4500 to confirm parking will be permitted during the storm and for how long, as this allowance will vary according to the magnitude of the storm and the day/time of the storm

Alternate street parking will be suspended in the Village of Great Neck Plaza for a period of 24 hours after the cessation of a snow storm of at least 4 inches of snow, as published by the National Weather Service.

Property owners are responsible for snow and ice removal from adjoining sidewalks. Under Village code, owners or occupants of a property must clear and maintain a 4 foot wide path on their sidewalk and adjacent crosswalks. Clearing of snow and ice must be done within 4 hours after snow has ceased to fall. When removing snow from your property please do not put the snow back into the roadway as this inhibits the Village's efforts to clear the roadway for safe travel. Also, when shoveling your sidewalk of snow or ice, don't forget to clean off any fire hydrant that may be on your property. Fire departments ask that people clear a distance of two feet in each direction, and to do so within four hours after snowfall has ceased. Every second counts in a fire emergency!

 

In the event of any weather emergency, The Village of Great Neck Plaza urges residents to do the following:

  • If you haven’t registered your cellphone or smartphone with LIPA, we urge you to do so now, so you can remain in touch with LIPA, if you experience a power outage at your home or business.  Once registered, you can report an outage to LIPA via text messaging “OUT” to 69-5472.  LIPA will respond with status updates of the outage and estimated restoration times. You can also report an outage by telephone to LIPA’s Call Center 1- 800- 490-0075 or at 631-755-6900 or online at www.lipower.org.
  • Please stay indoors, and off the roads for your safety and to allow DPW and emergency crews to respond.
  • If you see any downed wire, assume it is live and do not go near it. Report a downed wire to LIPA’s Call Center (see above).
  • If you live in a multiple dwelling, please be in contact first with your management company should you experience an outage and there’s no heat in your building from this event.  Nassau County OEM has advised that the American Red Cross is in the process of establishing a shelter should facilities be needed.  For location(s) and further information, call the American Red Cross Hotline at 1-877-733-2767 or the County’s Warm Bed Hotline at 1-866-WARM-BED.
  • In the event of a major snowstorm of at least 4 inches of snow, we urge you to park in your driveways if you have one for ease in street plowing.  If you are concerned about shoveling out your vehicle left on the street, you can park it in either of the Village’s two municipal garages at Plaza Centre and Maple Drive, provided you have a VGNP resident sticker or a VGNP Garage quarterly permit. Please be advised that parking is prohibited in spots designated for Handicapped Parking (unless you have a valid handicapped parking permit), Village Officials or Police Parking. Please call Village Hall at 482-4500 to confirm parking will be permitted.

Additional storm tips advised by LIPA include the following steps customers should take now to prepare for the possibility of a power outage:

  • Make sure you have a working, battery powered radio (County Executive Ed Mangano suggests KJOY at 98.3 for Nassau County and LI-based storm updates) or TV and a good supply of fresh replacement batteries. Have flashlights available for all family members. Make sure all motor driven equipment, such as garage door openers, can be operated manually.
  • When using a portable generator, make sure all LIPA-powered equipment is disconnected. This will avoid severe hazards when reconnecting the power to your home or business.
  • Have a first aid kit at home and check its contents to make sure they are complete and up to date. If you have family members with special medical needs, such as insulin or other prescription drugs, check to make sure you have an adequate supply.
  • Do not use charcoal to cook indoors: deadly carbon monoxide gas can accumulate in your home.
  • If you have an elderly neighbor, be a Good Samaritan and check on his or her status. Even a quick telephone call during a storm can provide much appreciated assurance that help is nearby, if needed.
  • Additional storm safety and preparedness tips and an informational video and guidance are available on the Long Island Power Authority’s (LIPA) Storm Central website at http://www.lipower.org/stormcenter/safety.html.
  • The Town of North Hempstead’s 311 Call Center is open to answer any questions you may have.  Dial 311 or 516-869-6311 (Town-311) from outside the Town to speak to one of the call takers.
