News to Monitor
There are a number of items to monitor in our hamlet of Remsenburg.
Proposed developments on North Phillips Avenue -- there are several development proposals for multi-family/apartment units that would require "down-zoning" (allowing for much higher density). These proposals have created a great deal of concern regarding the impact on our community. The concerns range from worries over the local schools, taxes, ambience, and traffic to name just some of them. In addition, these proposed developments would be over the Speonk-Solvent plume, which presents potential health risks to those would be residents.
Deer Management - the explosion in the deer population has created a significant health risk as well as a threat to our local ecology
