We can all pick numerous businesses we would like to see move in but unless you yourself plan to put down the money and start it up, then it really doesn't matter. The real dilemma facing this community is how to deal with blighted properties like the numerous vacant gas stations that have fallen into disrepair? Given the recent economy I think we all better get ready to deal with this as a long term problem. Should we be forced to just accept these eyesores as a part of our landscape or can we do something about them? I'd like to see legislation that forces the owners to paint the building one solid neutral color (free of graffiti!!!), keep the weeds cut, free of trash and post a sign showing the owners contact info. for anyone interested in buying or leasing the property and the town's building dept. phone number so that if the property becomes a dump, residents know who to call to file a complaint. We can't just let property owners abandon their lots and let it go to Sh%&. They (property owners) may not live in Commack and look at it every day, but we do.

There isn't enough cash in Commack households to support the local economy! When the economy was booming all local businesses were florishing. Thanks to Wall Street, the corrupt banks/ mortgage lenders and the FTC the economy tanked, jobs vanished and Main Street shut down. Has nothing to do with local businesses having a poor business model or poor mgmt- it's the economy stupid!
