Patchogue, LI—Wednesday, June 27: Legislator Rob Calarco was on hand to help break ground for an historic event in Patchogue Village: the groundbreaking for New Village, a mixed-use residential development located at the heart of downtown village that will revitalize the Four Corners and move the village downtown into the 21st Century.
The TRITEC project promotes an active, pedestrian-friendly community and will bring new life to retail west of North Ocean Avenue while retaining the historic flavor of Main Street and nearby village landmarks.
New Village represents a successful partnership between all levels of government and private enterprise, with Suffolk County investing $3.75 million in the project. At the groundbreaking ceremony, TRITEC principal Robert Coughlan identified Leg. Calarco as playing an integral part in helping to navigate county agencies to help move the project forward.
“This is a great day for downtown Patchogue. New Village represents the future of Patchogue by creating a true town square and providing affordable housing for young professionals. If we want to revitalize our downtowns and keep our young people on Long Island, creating spaces and landscapes where they can live, shop, work, raise a family and have a decent lifestyle is how to do it,” said Leg. Calarco.
