They should make this a county owned A.T.V. park. With trails for Mntn. Biking and A.T.V. use. Would be a large income maker for the county/town and a great way to keep the land green.

Kudos to Brookhaven and Suffolk. Now all that you have to do is to get on a bicycle or put on your hiking shoes and walk through the wilderness that is left on LI, smell the air, see the green, see the wildlife thats left and buy and preserve it.

I think the key word here is: PRESERVE.

I think we have plenty of preserves and parks that you are not allowed to do anything on. Most of the parks and preserves are completely empty 75% of the year. Lets make something for the humans that dos not involve a parking lot and a cash register. Get out in the woods and have some fun.

I own a very large Home Builders company on Long Island. I want to tell you all that while preserving land sounds nice and all your taxes will go up because there will be more people regardless and no more paying into the system. What is needed is more homes or corporate shopping locations to compensate. The inevitable will happen and homes and shopping centers will be built if not by me then someone else. It's not just the money for me but my childrens future and I have to be honest when I say that I would pave over every tree and every blade of grass on long island tomorrow if I could. Wake up Long Islanders.

There are two diffrent issues - high taxes and overdevelopment. The trouble is we have an antiquated governmental system on Long Island that has got to change. THe other problem is that we need more job development on Long Island. More bussiness less residential and retail. That is the direction we need to go.

wrong my friend. people will be able to use the property as they do now. as far as land off the tax roles - do a little research and you'll find that the tiny amount of taxes lost as a result of protecting it is much better to the community than the huge gap between the property taxes the twenty homes would have paid and the costly services they would have created, mostly in form of educating their kids. Who makes up the gap? All the residents in that school district! Residential development doesn't pay its own way and that is why in densely developed areas of Long Island where little land has been "taken off the tax roles" property taxes are still so high. If you care about rising property taxes open space protection is your best buy!!!!!

Gee Whiz, yet another land purchase to buffer the "upscale" from the rest of us. I notice the county never preserves land in the less desirable neighborhoods.

Your tax dollars hard at work. Building a better life for those who already have a better life.

Time to exercise your second amendment rights and take the government back. Time to eat the rich!

No quite sure that Foley understands that people are have a hard time paying for oil in their tanks, gas, food and still live a life and that's with both parents working full time. Maybe he can find money to help out the middle-class residence in the Brookhaven township. A free oil delivery would be nice. (just hopeful wishing for the new year)

You're wrong. You can go out enjoy any county or state land. Do a little simple research. Whats stopping you? Oh, right, youre too busy watching television and hitting the malls. Oh well, lucky for you there is PLENTY of that here on LI for you.

The "less disirable" areas usually dont have any open space left!(hint hint) Besides, it depends on what you may consider "less desirable". There are certainly middle and working class areas that have open space left, mostly on Eastern Long Island of course.

Haha, wow, you are a classic case of the ignorant goofball with no true foresight. More development means more services needed equals more and higher taxes. Vacant land generates very very little tax as it is. Building homes boosts taxes up even higher as more kids pile into the school system and more sanitation and service is needed. YOU wake up! Move your building company to New Jersey if you want to "pave over every tree and blade of grass". GOOFBALL!

You people scare me. With all the condos,'senior housing', malls , big box stores, etc., etc., etc., did your taxes ever go down. That's right, just keep on building on every available piece of land until it looks like Manhattan. Nit-wit.

That's great - you can tell your kids (while you sit in traffic on a sixteen lane highway) that you built that twenty story building on Montauk Point.
