There will be no deed transfer to --Gary and his friends--(?) whatever that implies. Gary and his friends can't GET the waterfront.<quoted text>So you want to give the waterfront over to a VERY small group, AKA village, who wants to sell it to developers to help pay for a village, but you dont care about the waterfront? MBV has the last undeveloped waterfront ON LONG ISLAND!!!! and you dont care what happens to it but the village should do whatever they want with it? Which unless you are completely stupid, you have to believe that the village WILL sell it off and have it developed. If you dont think that is the "vision" of MB, you are insane. If Gary and FRIENDS gets the waterfront, Developers WILL move in and build until the village gets enough money that they can say we are still "tax neutral".
You live in a house, you have a driveway, a septic system, probably a lawn. You drive home on roads that were paved to facilitate your travel needs. Congratulations! You have personally contributed to the development of Mastic Beach! Enjoy your stay.
