No Zone Change for Island Hills

posted Nov 22, 2017, 9:40 AM by Ronkonkoma Civic Association

Last night, 11-22-17, RCA attended the Town Board meeting where residents of the Connetquot and Sayville Communities spoke about the zone change being requested. The RCA supports our neighbors in this endeavor as it will affect our school district and our school taxes. 

No Zone Change for Island Hills

Vet's Hwy Corridor

posted Nov 20, 2017, 7:28 PM by Ronkonkoma Civic Association   [ updated Nov 20, 2017, 7:30 PM ]

Last Thursday, November 16th, a change to the zoning on Vet's Hwy was discussed. The change in zoning would allow fast food restaurants with drive thru's, more gas stations with convenience stores and more hotels. 

The RCA spoke out against those particular changes but we do agree that upscale restaurants should be allowed. Perhaps even a specialty supermarket. 

The vote is TUESDAY November 21st at Town Hall in Islip at 6 pm. If you want Vet's Hwy to be full of fast food restaurants, more hotels used as emergency housing and even more gas stations than please sit home and do nothing.

Otherwise we urge our members to attend and speak out against these changes. Urge our Town Board ELECTED Representatives to improve our neighborhood and not allow it to become "fast food and gas alley" (and a haven for more hotels that will become emergency housing.)

No ZONE Change

The Ronkonkoma Civic Association, along with Bohemia Civic and Sayville residents, joined to gather facts and make a plan to help stop a zone change at the old Island Hills Golf and Country club. Milynn Augulis, a Sayville resident spearheaded this movement along with several other residents  and welcomed help from the surrounding communities and hamlets. 

With a packed room, Connetquot residents and Sayville residents came together with Suffolk County Legislator Bill Lindsay, who graciously answered questions, his opponent Anthony Piccirillo also attended to show his support. Another supporter, Sam Gonzalez attends and continues to show his support for this community.

RMS Honor Society kids
These kids were SPOTTED by our President, Bruce Edwards - cleaning up Ronkonkoma on their day off from school! We love it! The parents of these children should be extremely proud of the civic-minded, caring children they are raising and the community appreciates their efforts! Thank you also to their RMS advisers and the parent volunteers that helped bring these kids around the neighborhood!
