I urge you to join with me in voting “YES” on the sale of the Syosset DPW property which is up for a referendum on Tuesday August 20th. I have been against a mall being built on the Cerro Wire property for over twenty years due to the fact that I believe it will lead to serious traffic consequences (there is no easy way to go east when leaving the site) and will have a disastrous impact on our local stores in the area. Progress which leaves destruction in its wake, is not progress.
Please join me and vote “YES.” Selling this additional land will prevent the expansion of any proposed mall. The committed buyers have promised to use the land in a way which will help the community by building senior housing, young adult housing and using smart growth as their guide. The money which the sale will bring will add to our economic stability as a Town and help ease our tax burden.
