The President’s Message Summer 2017

Dear Fort Salonga Neighbors,

When our community gave myself and the board a vote of confidence at our January election, I pledged that we would work to represent the entire community across a wide spectrum of issues. In this Summer issue I believe you will see that we are working hard to fulfill that commitment.

The issue of most interest was, and remains, the proposed development of the Indian Hills Country Club. The proposal to retain the golf course and permit cluster zoning while preserving the one acre overall yield was , we believe,  in the best interests of our community.  I, and a number of residents attended the July 26th Huntington Planning Board meeting. The number of units proposed was reduced to 98 and the guest cottages were eliminated. The application was approved. This, I feel, is a positive outcome and a victory for the community. An environmental study will follow which will allow the entire community to provide additional input. We will notify you when these meetings are scheduled.

Q and A with Mr. Frank Petrone 2017

Interview session with Mr. Frank Petrone 2017

  • The Fort Salonga community is very interested in the proposed cluster development at Indian Hills Country Club. Can you update us on this issue?

It is our understanding that the applicant intends to withdrawn his request for a zone change on this property and will pursue an as of right cluster development via the Town Law Section 278. Essentially the applicant will pursue a development that is similar to the conceptual plan submitted with the Zone Change application. However the yield will be determined by the number of homes that can be achieved via a standard R-40 subdivision. It is anticipated that the Planning Board will require many of the same open space benefits offered in the prior plan, including the preservation of the golf course. It is expected that the Planning Board will issue a positive determination and a full EIS will be required to comply with SEQRA.
