Belmont Park Community Coalition
Dear Valued Community Member,

Parkhurst and Tudor Manor Civic Associations


Title of Research Study: Belmont Park Community Coalition

Principal Investigator: Tammie S. Williams, MSW, Community Organizer


In 2006, the Elmont community expressed a strong desire to improve, and enhance the suburban condition and quality of life. Late 2012, New York Empire State Development (ESD) issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to generate ideas for the under-utilized space at the Belmont Park. The Parkhurst and Tudor Manor Civic Associations are conducting a study to learn how the surrounding Belmont communities feel after listening to presentations given by potential developers.

You are being asked to participate in this activity because you are a member of the Belmont Park Community. Parkhurst and Tudor Manor Civics would like to understand what impact the Belmont Park Redevelopment is having on you.
