Civc Assoc. Facebook page: Ed discussed the problems arising from the use of the facebook page to make negative comments about the efficacy of the civic association by residents who do not help the association, and in some cases, are not even members. The page is intended to make announcements and provide a place of support.
Charlie announced the donation of 100 daffodil bulbs, by Craig Den Hartog, for the Greenway Trail. Joan asked for volunteers to assist in planting.
Suspension of regular business:
-Meet the candidate: Ken Lavalle spoke on his abilities.
-Presentation by Steve Engles, regarding his property opposite the library. He provided better images and details about the site- he wishes to make an application for two medical office buildings totaling 14k ft., leaving a buffer of woods along Terryville Road. The membership voted to support this project.
-Presentation by Jim Tsunis- to get a change of zone down to J2 on his parcel that sits on the eastern property line of the TD Bank. He wants to have a Walgreens built, buy out a limousine business, and cut off part of Halsey Road to do so. After only negative comments from the membership, Ed told him we would not be voting to approve at this time.
Ed mentioned a new owner of 205 Main Street in our commercial hub area is interested in putting in offices and a business at that location. There is a meeting scheduled at Councilwoman Cartright’s office October 30th, regarding it.
Ed said he heard that Port Jeff Brewery may be interested in moving to Port Jefferson Station, which got a positive response from the membership.
Meeting adjourned at 8:55pm
