On the Links, no building permits issued yet. The action over there was they knocked down the clubhouse. Our Councilman Dan Panico has promised a public meeting the end o September at the William Floyd High School. We would like them to cut the grass, clean up the ponds and throw out the Squatters.

MY feelings on the links is the best thing for area Senior Citizen housing. I think right now it needs to be cleaned up they. It needs to get the Squatters out of there now. The people living next door to the links have holes cut in their fence leading to their yards. The high grass and ponds need cleaning. I do not think the people looking for a village should be looking for a village hall and center that no one around here can afford upkeep. They are scary!!

I agree in part that the senior citizens housing would be a better fit, however I have serious concerns about the Holiday Org. ever being able to sell 450 condos. i think it will be next to impossible and then they are going to ask for relief of the convenant and be able to rent or sell to anyone and then the impact on our school district would be awful.

Small clustered houses will for sure bring a burdened to our schools. With several kids in each family. I think that with the housing market ever thing is tough. But seniors canít keep up the cost of their homes so they do move to these kinds homes when they do not want to leave LI. They are not going to and from work everyday as younger families so addition to traffic is far less. They usually make a morning shopping trip and are off the road. They do not have teenagers driving the cars to add to the problem and the roads. Further Holiday is going to built no matter what. I donít think it is hard choice. We need to stay informed, watch and add input when we can. To Senior don't burden our resources but pay taxes.

I question what you said, Dolores. If seniors can not afford the upkeep on their homes, how do you think they will be able to buy a condo that will cost about $400,000? That makes no sense.

A house requires a lot more expense then a condo, taxes are higher and the work of upkeep is a burden. I know I am senior and we rely more and more on our kids for help with the care of the home. Most senior have a home to sell and then can afford the condo. Hope that clears it up.

Many are becoming aware that "conveyances' can and are changed on a regular basis. This happened in St. James, where a "55+ Senior Citizen Complex" , which had a conveyance not allowing anyone BUT 55+, was changed due to poor sales - it is now renting to Section 8, and is no longer a Senior Development.

Look at the Senior complex across from Wm. Paca - still less than half capacity full, and the "Senior 55+" sign is now gone - not sure if the conveyance was or is to change, but remember this - a lagging economy, home and condo sales stagnant, and with these factors, would you gamble your future or your investment on the probability that the conveyances will be changed, and a plethora of DSS residents or Section 8 placements are placed there?

The impact on the school system will then be catastrophic - home values could plummet further, and this area would be decimated.

If seniors are having difficulties maintaining the homes they currently live in, imagine a property tax of $7500.00 annually, PLUS the POA charges to maintain their condo, which will be in the area of $550.00 to $750.00 monthly!

Environmental impact studies have yet to be issued regarding the evacuation of a plethora of people living at this proposed site. This should be of primary concern to anyone living south of the Links, which I do.

This will be a potential disaster for Shirley, and should be vehemently fought by all owner occupied residents of this community. I have 2 1/2 years of research into the building of golf courses in Suffolk County, and 85% of all golf courses developed within the last 15 years HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED INTO LOW COST HOUSING!

Do research - and be totally informed as to the ramifications of this complex being proposed.

Who is "US"? Although I am interested, I do not give my email address to just anyone, especially people associated with the SPBPOA who are the ones responsible for trying to get a "Hamlet of Smith Point". And since you are a supporter of this non-existent hamlet, then you madam and your motives are suspect. If in fact this is who "US", then no thank you.

you guys are so sad this address is started by me and my Neighbors.
For once believe it or don't, others in this town are capable of taking initiation. I would LOL as you guys do but shooting off your mouth and the ignorance it shows is not funny. We live next door to links. No one cares like we do! No hidden agenda here!! The above is not name calling is a reaction to ignorance.

"Us" is the people who live next door to the links. Some of "us" have Links right in our back yard and I really don't think people here will find ignorant comments, dumb fighting or name calling very appropriate or helpful here. "US" has nothing to do with either group. We have self interest at work here. So don't start rumors to who "us" is. Or who informsmithpt@optonline.net is. Do you just enjoy fighting about everything and with everybody no matter who they are or what they stand for?? Besides you and your group know everything and don't need our help so we don't want your email address.

This is a public meeting I asked for, I don't think we need all our information filtered to us through others. I think we should have the right to make our own inquires as residents who live here. I think to many people have been presenting themsevlies as speaking for all of us. My neighbors have this thing in their back yards.
They have a right to know what is coming unfiltered.

The fact is that something is going to be built there. The property is way too expensive for the Town or County to purchase it so therefore there will be some sort of housing on that property. What goes there, we may be able to influence slightly but the developer holds all the cards. He has a huge investment and he will do what he feels will benefit him financially. Everyone better realize that we we say really won't carry much weight. The developer has already said if the community gives him a hard time about the senior housing then he will build the single family homes and there is nothing we can do to stop that since he has the legal right to build the single family homes.

NP - my only and primary concern is the possibility of these condos being turned into affordable housing - which is a very real probability, and the potential dangers that may impact this community as a whole that will last for many years to come.

Many 55+ individuals still work - so the theory that roads won't be impacted are mute. Costs are also key - as I've stated, paying $7500.00 in taxes annually, in conjunction with POA charges (monthly maintenance charges) that will be in the range of $550.00 to $750.00 monthly are a key affordability issue.

Look at his from a different angle - a senior is not going to receive SS until age 62 / the new retirement age to receive full SS is 67 / so all those under 62 will have to be able to pay for services using either their pensions,(I doubt all over 55 have pensions, but some do)- so how do these people afford to live there?

Well, if they attempt to sell their homes to move into a condo, they will be hard pressed to find a potential buyer in a stagnant economy with a glut of homes currently available.

That's strike one.

Now, let's look at costs;

A minimum of $625.00 monthly to cover annual taxes, in conjunction with almost $700.00 in POA charges, means a senior will have to come up with $1325.00 per month - and this excludes electric, cable, food, car payments and insurance, condo insurance, medicines, etc.

And we are to believe these individuals won't have to work in order to live there? THEY WOULD HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO FIND SOME TYPE OF RESIDUAL INCOME SOURCE / I.E.- PART TIME OR POSSIBLY FULL TIME EMPLOYMENT!

This would add enormous impact on Wm.Floyd Pkwy.

What about evacuation routes?

In any case, a senior who already owns their home, paid off, would find the financial impact far more disastrous to attempt to sell and move than to continue living where they are currently and hire a landscaper to maintain their property. I pay only $25.00 per week to have my landscaper maintain my property.

It's not something I would have advise my grandmother (God rest her soul) to do.
