On Thursday, we asked Kings Park Patch Facebook readers to comment on "What do you want to see happen in Kings Park in 2014?"

Here's their wishes for 2014:

  • I'd like to see the storefronts on both sides of main st. Totally redone!! (Editor's Note: This comment received 5 likes.) 
  • A dog park!!

  • I would love to see the Kings Park School District's administration and Board of Education provide a thorough validation as to why they believe diving head first into the Common Core curriculum is developmentally appropriate. Included in their response I would like an explanation as to how there are district funds (tens of thousands of dollars) to pay allocated for copying "modules" (Common Core scripts which don't allow excellent teachers to teach the way they can) but no funds for other things that are necessary?
What's on your 2014 wishlist for Kings Park? Post in the Comment box below.

Better parking arrangements for the businesses of Kings Park.

I'd also like to see the High School have a electronic sign in the front of the school that can be programmed from within the office like the other school districts have.

OK, FIRST, N FOREMOST.... A COMMUNITY CENTER. A REAL COMMUNITY CENTER. FOR FAMILIES. NOT, NOT, A SENIOR CITIZENS CENTER. Not the library or the ice rink...ALLLLL AGES, YOUNG N OLDER. A GOOD ONE. WITH EVERYTHING FOR VERY YOUNG TO ALITTLE OLDER. LIKE A RECREATIONAL CENTER. COME ON PEOPLE. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS TOWN? I have brought up my kids in this town n now they have kids. I am still young. Right now, I am watching the Rolling Stones on TV.... Why can't we have a place for concerts, game night, holiday festivals, plays, community chorus,,,etc, etc, etc,.... I know there is a place, somewhere, (kings park psych. Hospital grounds?????) I go with my family to other towns, (Northport for example), for summer street fairs... Lots of revenue there, not to mention the fun family bonding... Have gone to bellport for winter restaurant night and horse carriage rides... Come on people. Surely, you must have an inspiration or vision.. ? There could be sooo much more for our town then there is now! Signed, Someone that grew up in Kings Park n wants to keep life here for our kids + more.......

Would also like to see Main Street occupied and revitalized. Would love to start a family business in a town that we call home. What do area residents feel would be an asset to our town. What businesses would you like to see on Main Street. would love to hear what other community members are thinking
