“In an effort to create our own downtown, we must reconfigure, revitalize and beautify a main intersection in the heart of our West Babylon town.”
West Babylon Main Street Organization has taken a gigantic and historic step forward in reshaping an area in West Babylon. With help of The West Babylon Chamber of Commerce, local civic organizations, Town of Babylon officials, Suffolk County executives and various NYS levels of governments, a plan has been set into motion to bring a centralized hub to the community. Suffolk County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) which was created to actively promote, encourage, attract, develop jobs and businesses throughout the county is focusing on West Babylon to create a friendly neighborhood we can all call our downtown. In a landmark initiative and effort by WBMSO, regional planners are exploring the possibilities to reshape a local street intersection, and bring more economic welfare, prosperity and recreational opportunities for all residents of West Babylon to enjoy.
