Our Mission

The mission of the Committee to Save St. Paul’s is to find a reasonable and affordable plan to save the historic St. Paul’s building and to keep it under public control for public use. The historic St. Paul’s main building and surrounding acres were purchased in 1993 from the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island for use by the residents of the Village. At the time, it was the expressed objective of that purchase to protect and preserve this priceless piece of real estate in the heart of our Village from private commercial development.

We believe that St. Paul’s is an embodiment of the unique qualities of our Village, that it enhances our property values, that it is a link to our past and a beacon of light for the future that should always remain under the ownership and control of the residents.

The Committee recognizes that this goal will involve some taxpayer expense, and that the residents must ultimately decide how much to spend for that restoration. Therefore, we do not oppose some form of mixed public-private use, as long as the building remains under the ownership of the Village of Garden City and its residents.
