President’s Message: Summer 2015

Dear Neighbor,

I hope that you have all enjoyed a wonderful summer in our beautiful hamlet. There are so many enjoyable things to do. As you look around you probably noticed some of the work NY State is doing on our local parks. The new clubhouse at the Sunken Meadow Golf course and the current renovation of the main entrance to Sunken Meadow beach. We regularly attend the community meetings to stay informed regarding the work in the park. It looks like they are doing excellent work.

I hope you have also enjoyed some of the events marking the 350th anniversary of the Town of Smithtown this season. There are more events planned. For example on September 19th there will be fireworks at Sunken Meadow State park (gates open at 4 p.m.). On September 26th there will be a historical parade down Main Street in Smithtown. On October 10th, our organization is planning a Day in History that will include a reenactment of the battle of Fort Slongo.

Answer:
The Town has not approved the site plan.


Question #2:
The builders are looking for a $2.3 million tax break. The Suffolk County Industria Development Agency unanimously voted to support this. What does this mean to Town of Huntington residents? Will there be an increase in taxes? Will the Town provide fire, ambulance and police protection?

Road and Highways: Summer 2015 Update

At the request of the Fort Salonga Association, both Bread and Cheese Hollow Road and Middleville Road have been restriped. We also requested a repave of Middleville but Huntington Highway feels it does not meet the repaving standard. This road is winding and hilly and subject to a large volume of VA traffic so we are appreciative to Pete Gunther for the recent restriping. Also we thank Gil Anderson at the county for his responsiveness on Bread and Cheese.
