Congratulations to our neighbors in Kings Park on being awarded more than $20 million in state and county grants to fund a long awaited sewer system and revitalization plan. The Fort Salonga Association is a proud supporter of the Kings Park Civic Association’s efforts along with the Kings Park Chamber of Commerce’s hard work organizing the community effort that resulted in these grants. We wish them the very best as the plans move forward. Read More
Q: The LIRR is looking to create a train yard on the Port Jefferson Branch. Kings Park is one potential location, and it will affect nearly half of residents in Ft. Salonga / Kings Park as well as residents in Huntington bordering Smithtown. Has the Town of Huntington considered a position to protect its borders? Are you aware of any additional locations in Huntington being considered?
Petrone: Yes and we have exhausted all of them. We do not believe the LIRR is looking at any site in Huntington at this point.
Residents have reached out to the Association to express concerns regarding the speeding on Bread and Cheese Hollow Road. While the accident rate has declined from when it was nicknamed “Brake and Crash Road,” speeding remains a community concern. The recent repaving of Townline Road has created a smooth glidepath into Bread and Cheese, while the VA expansion and widening of Pulaski Road will contribute additional traffic.
