judge dismisses community lawsuit

" November 23, 2011: Superior Court Judge Paul Baisley, Jr. has dismissed a lawsuit by the Riverhead Neighborhood Preservation Coalition that seeks to block construction of a 7,200 square-foot catering hall addition at Great Rock Golf Course in Wading River. He said the litigation was premature and would have to wait for action on the site plan application currently before the Riverhead Planning Board. Justice Baisley wrote that the RNPC's "...submissions fail to establish that their claims cannot be adequately addressed by a proceeding to review the Planning Board's determination after it is made." RNPC co-founder Dominique Mendez stated, " The Judge's decision simply postpones the determination about the fate of the project. The RNPC will continue to work on the current planning study for this corridor, so that land use approiate to the rural character of the hamlet is preserved."

solar panels at riverhead town landfill ?

The Riverhead Town Board will hear a presentation from LI green Energy regarding a proposal to install solar panels on the 76 acre parcel on Youngs Avenue. The project has the potential to generate between 10 to 11 megawatts, about the same amount the town uses in a year. The town would lease the land to LI green Energy for about $500,000 a year and receive electricity generated by the project at cost, a savings of about 25%. The deal if it happens will need LIPA approval. The Town will also have to send out Requests for Proposals to see if other companies are interested in the project.
