  • Eastern Property Owners' Association
    600 Franklin Ave, Garden City, NY 11530

    The Garden City Eastern Property Owners' Association (EPOA) is an organization that represents the residents of theMore Eastern section of the village in the governmental structure set forth by the Community Agreement of 1919. It is the largest of Garden City's four POAs, representing approximately 40 percent of the village population. There are 19 elected directors, five of whom are EPOA officers.

    The EPOA maintains an updated website at www.gcepoa.org.

    The EPOA serves two critical functions: 1) It provides the mechanism for nominating candidates for election to the village board of trustees (BOT) and the school board through the Garden City East Nominating Committee (otherwise known as the Ten-Member Nominating Committee). The elected Garden City East nominating committee traditionally seeks to select people for mayor and trustee who have experience working within the POAs to ensure that our village officials bring to the table an overall understanding of the village infrastructure, the various commissions and the village code as well as the duties and responsibilities of a mayor and trustee vested by New York State. 2) It serves as a civic association, so that residents can bring concerns to their POA as well as the BOT. To promote communication and cooperation among all four POAs, the section presidents and vice-presidents form the Joint Conference Committee to discuss issues that affect the village as a whole, and to create village-wide awareness of issues that are unique to any given section. 

    Our motto is "progress through participation." The village trustees and the officers, directors and representatives of the EPOA are volunteers. The only prerequisites they share are a desire for local involvement, civic pride and a belief in serving the greater good of the community.

    The Certificate of Incorporation for Eastern Property Owners' Association, Inc. states the mission: "To promote the property interests of the residents of Garden City, East, to uphold and sustain their vested property rights and to give advancement and encouragement to all things which may be deemed for their general benefit of the locality now known as Garden City, East, and generally embracing that territory situated to the East of Garden City."
