Our Pothole Challenge
 
This has been a particularly difficult pothole season.  The changes of temperatures and vast weather fluctuations have caused the most potholes on our roads in recent memory.  Our Highway crews are out in force using hot patch to fill potholes throughout the village.  If you come across a pothole, please help us by calling it in to 516-369-1947.  You can also minimize damage to your own vehicles by exercising extreme caution as you travel about the village.

“It’s wonderful to be recognized by a national magazine as living in the best place in the state.  For those of us who live here, we know how great Valley Stream is, due to its proximity to the LIRR and New York City, our great schools, low crime and a diversity of people who live and work together, and  add a rich dimension to our community.  There are 60 languages spoken here, but when it comes to our quality of life and what truly matters, we are one voice!  As the New York Times so aptly pointed out, Valley Stream is “neat, clean, safe and welcoming.”  Welcome home to Valley Stream!”
- Mayor Ed Fare.

Scam Alert!

The holiday season is now upon us, and unfortunately so are some scammers who would like to take money from hard working people.  If you receive any suspicious phone calls asking for money, payments in the form of gift cards, or personal identifying information hang up immediately!  Some people are calling claiming that a family member, often a grandchild, is in trouble and needs money.  Do not fall for these tricks.  Unscrupulous people will stop at nothing to rob you of your money.  Always verify any disturbing information with a trusted family member.

If you receive a call like this, or any call that asks for credit card, banking or personal information such as social security numbers, hang up immediately and call the 4th/5th Precinct Police at 516-573-6444 or the Nassau County Department of Consumer Affairs at 516-571-2600.

 KNOW YOUR VILLAGE, STATE, TOWN and COUNTY ROADS

The village of Valley Stream is responsible for 80.6 miles of roadway, however, we also have about 11 miles of road that is not under village jurisdiction. These are county and state roads that are repaired (including potholes), swept, sanded and snow plowed by each respective municipality.

Here is a list so that you will better understand your roadways:

New York State Roads: Sunrise Highway

Nassau County Roads: Merrick Road, Central Avenue, Mill Road, Rockaway Avenue, Rockaway Parkway, Sidney Place, Horton Avenue, Peninsula Boulevard, Rosedale Road, North Corona Avenue, Railroad Avenue and Franklin Avenue.

Town Of Hempstead Roads: There are many roads along the perimeter of our village that split with our bordering communities.  Lynbrook, North Valley Stream, Mill Brook, Hewlett, North Woodmere and Malverne all have roads that these villages and hamlets share with us. Please look for the “Welcome to…” signs that delineate the village limits. The signs should be almost exactly along the border of our neighboring municipalities.

Facts you should know…
The village has 80.6 miles of roadway it must maintain on a daily basis. That is like traveling from Valley Stream to East Hampton along Sunrise Highway and being responsible for that entire stretch of road.
The cost of re-paving the average village street is approximately $1 million a mile!

This year the village has used 70 tons of cold patch asphalt to repair potholes on village streets.
 
 If you find a pothole on your street, please call Mayor Fare's Helpline at 1-855-99MAYOR (1-855-996-2967).
