This is too little too late. Nassau County has be negligent on this issue for years. They want to preserve open space in Mostly White neighborhoods while selling offthe open spce in Black and Hispanic neighborhoods. Tanglewood Preserve has been turned into a "only for profit" petting zoo and party place. The residents of Nassau are paying for NSTL to have exclusive rights to public property. Why were the Legislators silent on this one??? Denenberg is the only one with a true passion for open space. Check the voting records.

Wow, 103 acres over the last four years, thats about 25 acres a year; Nassau County is really serious about preserving open space.

Yep. I think that these preserved "open spaces" should be accessible to all. Let's make them accessible, and then we'll see how quickly North Shore communities stop requesting that their neighboring areas be preserved..LOL.
Fact is, I'm interested in inviting some of my friends from Roosevelt for a picnic in Red Spring Woods. Think those homes that surround it would mind?

When Suozzi says "accessable" he means "sellable" because he wants to privatize all of the things the County now has no money to maintain thanks to his lack of fiscal responsibility. Why should the taxpayers pay for his stupid mistakes? Tell him to get rid of some of his friends sitting on no-show jobs! Let's kick him out!!

Yea, worth it for suozzi and the rest of the elitist pigs. I know for a fact that souzzi has been in cohoots with one of the largest developers on the north shore. I know for a fact that a parcel of privately owned land land in Latting Town that should be owned by the NC land trust was denied land trust status by souzzi. Shortly after land trust denial a developer along with suozzi went to the owner of the parcel and offered to buy it outright! He may not be as bad as the previous rats, he may be more sneaky than the rest.
Would that be Ritchie? or Vince?

"We're working on that right now," said Tom Maher, Nassau's environmental coordination director. "It's in the process of being considered."

maybe you should put in a little unpaid overtime until you come up with a solution.

The Long Island economy is starting to collapse. Many businesses are about to go out of business. I can't sell my house. Maybe it's time to just leave any way. I didn't put to much money into it any how.

Why talk about it, if it can't be done??? And it can't be done...People who own property adjacent to the land will NEVER sign on ...
