screw you. It's the last place on LI who's waterfront isn't privately owned. Leave the waterfront open to everyone, not the few who will buy it and place a McMansion on it. selling off the waterfront won't improve the village, it will bring a dozen people here that will over pay for property and taxes. How does that help? The "vision team" should do what they promised they would do, get rid of the slumlords and sex offenders and do it all while keeping taxes neutral.

No development= You still live in cesspool! Everyone of you small minded morons are exactly what's wrong with this place! We need this place improved! Our shore line here is a dumping ground! You can't even get to cranberry dock on high tide! The only way to get rid of slumlords and sex offenders is high end development.It will raise property values and slumlords will cash out!

That is the dumbest idea I have ever heard. The Village is slowly working to make it not worthwhile to be a slumlord here.Ir will not make sense to conduct buisness here the way it used to be. That is when the slumlord's will 'cash out'.Ironically, this will,in the short term be a depressing factor on the price of house's as more houses are put up for sale.Bur let's face it, the price of house's is not going up anytime soon anyway,no matter what we do,so it seem's a good time to take the hit now. Most of VMB is not waterfront so I fail to see how developing the waterfront help's the community as a whole. How are we going to attract these big spender's to live here? With a big house? Then what? We have to make the area a safe place first,establish and enforce some sensable rules. I know of a few very nice well priced house's very close to the water that hav'nt sold.WHY? Anyway's, speculation is not the answer ,creating a sense of community is. That will be the 'value' added to each and every home here. It is a value that cannot be 'priced', yet is in much demand.

I have personally witnessed the VMB court enforce codes against illegal renters and homeowners who let their property go into disrepair.

I heard some funny answers to the charges....one guy said to the judge: "how come I didn't get a warning for having two unregistered cars on my front lawn?" The judge said...."here is your $100 fine".

A lady from Village of Massapequa Park said she had trouble hearing when the judge asked her why she didn't clean up the mess in a house she owns in VMB. She claimed the Hurricane (which happened on 8/25/11) was an act of God and she is waiting for the insurance co to clean it up. When the Judge told the woman the ticket was issued in late October, almost 3 months after the storm, the woman said it was not fair to hit her with a fine.

The judge then asked the lady who actually does live in the house?, because the owner lives in Massapequa Park. The woman said her "son" goes there from time to time and may not have seen the notice. The judge said...."here is your $100 fine"with a written promise to re-mediate the property by 1/7/12.

Building along the waterfront is not something ANYONE wants. But, the zoning must be changed to protect the character of our community. Some people say why should I say anything. I submitted my opinion, you can too!

if you find trash in the wet lands, drag it to the center of the street, then the village needs to pick it up. If it is left off to the side, they won't touch it.

Where are all the volunteers that said they would gladly spend their time helping out the village? They need to go and pick up the trash all over the side of the streets.(yeah I know, everyone should do it, but they don't. The supporters of the village PUBLICLY announced they has hundreds of volunteers that would do it. SOOOO, put you money where your mouth was, go volunteer and "clean up this mess")

OR, have the code enforcers pick up trash as they are "on duty" driving around doing nothing. Instead of wasting gas, have them "patrol" a 3 block radius at a time with a black garbage bag in their hands. This would allow them to view more of MBV on a more personal level while cleaning up our streets. Make them actually earn their money.

I just purchased a home on Monroe Dr down by the water, I plan on mkaing it my permanent residence, The home is in need a some repair, which I had planned on doing before the new year, Unfortunatly I did not realize being in the Village meant a lot of different rules. I now had to hire an Architect to have buidling plans drawn up , I then have to apply to the village board for a permit...then I can't hire any Suffolk County Licensed Contractor , They have to be registered in the village . All this is TAKING TIME !!! with any luck I hope to be in by the summer... So what started out as a simple remodelis becoming a time consuing project,, I can only hope in the end it is all worth it ,Too all my new neighbors near Monroe & Forrest I apologize I have not been able to do with the house as of yet, But work will begin soon,( I hope )
