A non-profit with serious influence in business and government circles is relocating to Farmingdale. Sustainable Long Island announced Monday it has moved from Bethpage to office space at 399 Conklin Street.
Sustainable Long Island, founded in 1998 and currently staffed by six employees, has been part of downtown revitalization efforts in numerous communities Island-wide. The organization said it recently signed a five-year lease for 1,500 square feet of office space in the heart of the Village.
Sustainable Long Island made news in November when it named , a former management analyst with the Suffolk County Executive Office, as executive director.
”We couldn’t be happier with our move to such a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere like the Village of Farmingdale,” Engel said. “Symbolically the new space provides sustainability elements that go hand-in-hand with the organization’s mission, such as a walkable downtown and transit oriented development.”
The organization is in the process of planning its annual Sustainability Conference. This year’s event, slated for June 1 at , will focus on the “Changing face of sustainability.”
