differing views on new zoning designation

Brookhaven residents sounded off this week on proposed changes to zoning including the creation of a Next Generation housing zoning designation. The zoning is intended to encourage affordable housing and walkable, mixed use communities. Some residents felt that this new zoning designation would curtail sprawl and control development. Other residents dosagreed and felt that this was a pro development policy and that there was no proof that this zoning would produce a better quality of life. The planning Department has scheduled a public informational meeting on 1/7 at 2pm to present the proposed zoning changes. The hearings will remain open to comment until 1/22/13.

no merge dates for special elections

Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine & Councilman Dan Panico again called on the Suffolk County Legislature's Democratic Majority to merge dates for the special election in the First Legislative District & Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent together on the same date to save taxpayer dollars. According to Supervisor Romaine the issue is now unfortunately moot and therefore the resolution by Councilman Panico to allow greater flexibility and amend the law to mirror the County law on filling vacancies will not be voted on at the December 18th town board meeting. The election date for filling the vacancy in the First Legislative District will be January 15, 2012 . Romaine indicated that the vote to fill the Highway post will be at least 60 days after the present officeholder leaves .

relief for north shore beaches?

Riverhead Supervisor Sean Walter is seeking some way to help the battered home owners along the town's North Shore. Hurricane Sandy has left many Wading River residents along the LI Sound in a very precarious state. Walter is considering asking for another emergency dredging which would provide some protection for vulnerable Creek Road residents. It is unlikely that FEMA will pay for an off shore beach replenishment project and besides that Riverhead would not be able to come with up a required 25% share. There appear to be no easy quick fixes on the horizon.

Representatives of JPower will introduce themselves at the 11/15 meeting of the Wading River Civic . In October, LIPA selected JPower and Caithness as the finalists in their quest for the construction of new generating capacity on Long island. LIPA plans to make a decision which company they will choose to build a large base load natural gas plant in about the next 6 months. If selected the Caithness Plant would be built in Yapank or the JPower plant would be constructed on the LIPA property by the abandoned nuclear plant. It is our understanding that JPower is planning to do a large scale community outreach meeting in the near future.
