Dix Hills people protest everything.
1-Protested a new and improved rest stop on the LIE. OH NO!!! The trucks will idle and make my neighborhood smell.
2-Protested a inter-model truck rail facility at Pilgrim State. OH NO!! This will bring more truck traffic.
3-Protested Home Depot and Walmart on Crooked Hill road in Commack. OH NO!!! More traffic. Only the peasants shop there.

Dix Hills = NIMBY But what they fail to tell you is that their zip code is 11746 which is HUNTINGTON STATION.
OH NO!!!!

Try to be a little informed before you start throwing around NIMBY accusations. The truth is the substation is being built so that LIPA can use the substations that are already feeding the area to feed the new Tanger outlet center. A Babylon town project that Town of Huntington residents are being inconvienced for. And as far as affordabl housing goes, Dix Hills has the most new affordable housing and low income housing units built in Suffolk County in the last 10 years.Don't believe me look it up.

I live less than a few hundred feet from the substation they are working on. Not only does it cause problems with drainage and traffic but how you like it if LIPA put one in your backyard?

Huntington Station and Dix Hills share the same but they cannot be compared to eachother.There is nothing affordable in Dix Hills. I am familiar with the area. Except for a few LIPA maintenence vehicles the traffic will not increase. The defunct substation was there for years probably long before you moved there.I cannot see what negative impact this substation will be to your normal way of living.

Good old Debra the electrical engineer knows that nownew electrical lines need to be installed. I'll bet she is one of the first ones to call and whine when there is an outage in her area.

Traffic at a substation? I haven't seen any stoplights in front of one? What are you talking about and it's been in your back yard for years.

Are you on drugs???????

Central Islip, Brentwood and Bellport are getting the majority of affordable housing in Suffolk County. The only thing Dicks Hills does for affordable housing is keep it out of their neighborhood.

Time to bulldoze Dicks Hills and start over!!!!

The Defunct substation was a concrete slab. The new substation will have 2- 40 foot towers and 2- 140 foot towers. We don't need to see giant electrical towers out our window

Tough luck. Stopping using so much power, you won't need a substation.

As a society we should work together and that is the overally reality that we need to conclude upon. Yes Dix Hills is a nice place and yes, less affluent people need good school districts too. We have to come to a compromise, the rich nor the poor shouldn't have to suffer but thats how life is, people suffer. One thing that we all should be able to agree to, is that another power plant does not help our endangered planet.
