Report: County Considering Buying Detmer Property for Park Purposes

Village Times Herald reports that the land west of the post office on Route 25A could become a park.

The vacant lot that's for sale next to the East Setauket U.S. Post Office on Route 25A may have a future as a park, according to a report published Thursday in The Village Times Herald.

The county legislature unanimously adopted a resolution on Oct. 9 that would "[allow] our division of real estate in the planning department to secure appraisals to see if there's interest with the owners," Suffolk Legis. Kara Hahn, D-Setauket, told The Village Times Herald.

The property is currently for sale by owners Irene Detmer and Alice Halliday, who did not comment, but whom Hahn said have expressed an interest in selling to the county.

As for the possibility of a park, "we were thinking maybe picnic tables, bike racks, some extra parking and a gazebo," Hahn said.

NOOoo! Town of Brookhaven has recently pulled the plug on the Dept. of Women's Services (including the Dress For Success organization which has helped thousands of women return to work) and now they want to BUY property for ANOTHER park?!! I think helping human beings is much more important! Let's bring in more REVENUE not SPEND more money.

Agreed Mary Ann! But if some get their way, these unemployed women needing help will at least have a park and a 7 million dollar bike trail to panhandle on. Priorities...priorities...priorities

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption. "Welcome to http://www.coachoutletonlinetc.com Pompeii," she is meant to say. "The city of the dead".

actually, Bush (a republican) increased entitlement spending (which includes public pensions) more than any president in history. Also, Republicans have increased entitlement spending at a faster rate than Democrats in the last 30 years
