Cathedral Gardens Civic Association

Community Dues Campaign 2021

January 2021


Dear Neighbor,


As we enter into 2021, The Cathedral Gardens Civic Association wishes you and yours a very Happy New Year.  After an incredibly difficult year, we send this letter to you to share the positive things that took place in our community in 2020 and to share all the wonderful things this community has to look forward to in 2021.  


In a year when we spent the majority of time in our homes, I feel such a great sense of gratitude to be part of such a special community like Cathedral Gardens.  In 2020, with your support, the CGCA was able to raise over $6,000 - more than any year to date.  Your generous donations in 2020 have allowed us to:


  • Add a new Cathedral Gardens welcome sign at Bedell Avenue & First Street

  • Continue our summer hanging basket program at each street sign, with beautiful flowers

  • Plant and decorate entrances into Cathedral Gardens on the North & South sides of Westminster and our new sign at Bedell & First Street

  • Holiday decor at Welcome signs, street signs and new this year - lamp posts on Bedell

  • Begin our first annual holiday decorating contest, complete with prizes for the winners

  • Welcome Wagon gifts for new our new Cathedral Gardens neighbors


As we have done in years past, we will implement a survey so you can share your ideas for this year, however, we wanted to include some things already in the works:


  • Refurbishing the American Flags that adorn the posts up and down Westminster Road

  • Working with the Village of Hempstead to create a park like atmosphere at the Bedell Avenue Circle

  • Implementing a tree planting initiative throughout Cathedral Gardens

  • Ongoing beautification initiatives such as street sign maintenance, hanging baskets, holiday decorations, etc. 


CGCA continues to work in lockstep with our local and elected officials to ensure our community gets the attention it deserves.  This includes:

  • The revitalization of the National Wholesale Liquidators site

  • Working with the Town of Hempstead to have the streets of Cathedral Gardens repaved

  • Organizing community programs to clean up and restore Hempstead Turnpike

  • The rapaving of Westminster Road, which is the entrance of our community


This year, the Cathedral Gardens Civic Association’s suggested dues donation is $30, but no donation is too small to make a difference in your community.
