We'll look into it and post an article with what we find out

A pool? So 2 months a year, non-residents can flood our neighborhoods, and all winter, we can pay for security and maintainence? Please, no pool for me. How about an all purpose college sized gym building, where they can hold bicounty basketball tourneys, wrestling tourneys, cheerleading competitions? The Town has nothing large enough for large scale meets, and during the week, it could be doubling as a senior center, meeting rooms, community center, with a large blank wall facing the parking lot that can be used for old school drive-in movies. Think multi-use, not just a hole in the (tainted) ground.

THANK YOU! Why open up what the EPA buried?

Look for a full article about this soon, but the environmental clean-up is apparently just about finished there and the Town of Oyster Bay is going to local club meetings to get input about the future of the property. There will be a open forum for residents to attend in the fall to express their input. What would everyone like to see there?

I have owned my home on Lambert Ave. for years, which is right around the corner from the park and new construction. I personally would welcome an extension of the park, as in a pool or anything for town residents. This area has been an eyesore forever. They should also reface or rebuild the businesses across the street, the owners of these businesses enjoy gaining income from the people of this community, but have done nothing to help our neighborhood improve it's look and it's about time. These improvements would also help improve our property values which have taken a hit in recent times.
