I can't believe whats happening in Shoreham. People are moving out everyday because nothing happens to help the tax payers. I guess we just have to wait and see how many homes go in forclosure within the next year because of taxes. Look at the businesses, there starving. You may have more empty land and vacant homes than you need. Will that help Shoreham. Bring us a great Shoreham Town with great stores and small restaurants . Take a look at Stonytrook Village. The homes there sell fast. Stonybrook Village has charm. Music, Christmas Shows, Lighting of a Tree at Christmas. Horse and Buggy Rides. Shoreham will never change for the better because of people who do not want change. very sad. I

Shoreham will NEVER be a Stony Brook! Well maybe in the village at the shoreline, but they wouldn't want this PDD there! You can't drop a city in a rural town, no matter what. This area couldn't handle the traffic and our schools can't hold the extra load.
Thank God the Pine Barrens Commission followed the LAW. A concept many can't comprehend it seems. The town didn't follow SEQRA law, go figure. See this website that shows the documents to prove it: www.capddinfo.com You'll see how well Foley and his team did on this one... NOT!

Long Island is in serious trouble... Take a good look at Shoreham, the taxes we pay do nothing to beautify the town (we have no town ) The people in charge are failing the Shoreham community. Nothing has changed in Shoreham. The small stores owned by ..........do ok, not much competition for them... Wake up Shoreham. Create jobs for our families. Make people want to live in Shoreham. Its time for change and change won't happen without the people of shoreham making it happen.

I am thankful to live in Shoreham. I moved out here to get out of the commercialized area I lived in before. Our local stores don't need more cometition. In this economy, who can afford to go shopping anyway. Thank God that Tallgrass PDD was stopped in its' track. It would have been the destruction of this wonderful community.
Keep Shoreham as it is; beautiful, non-commercialized, a place where anyone would want to live!

I use to live in brooklyn and I loved the excitement of meeting people, having many stores with owners that were friendly. Some people like to be alone and live in a quiet place with nothing to do. The only clothing store near Shoreham is Kohls. I'm happy the PDD did not stop that.......

Living near town centers is the future for growth. Seniors can enjoy walking, shopping and meeting people in the village. Huntington village is great. We enjoy spending the afternoon in Stonybrook or Huntington Village. Stonybrook village has bands during the summer. All bring chairs and enjoy the music. The children enjoy the christmas tree lighting and Santa visits. I wish the people who planned Stonybrook could plan the Shoreham Village. You don't need a shoreline....

If you spoke to the MAJORITY of people who live in Shoreham you would find out they think the same way...we dont need outside developers and outsiders to tell us what we are missing or what we need in this town.

LOL you must be kidding.This town is doing just fine,I dont know where you get your information but i think you are just making it up LOL...The small shopping center here is booming.We have a great bagle store to sit and have a coffee and meet with old and new friends. Several places to get take out and just about any other store that a small town would need..We also have a great school which has all kinds of things going on for the townspeople...i think you must be related to that developer that wanted to build here lol....

Rocky Point started out as a bungalow community, turned into a dumpy squalid little berg, shoreham had its wealthy beach area north of 25a, south of 25a were always lower class woking families who suddenly believe they are (above it all) and (civics)(makes you want to vomit) these same (rednecks living south of 25a) are opposed to any new projects, just to throw their weight around, they have no concept about what they are talking about, these same rednecks opposed 2 doctors back in the 1970's who wanted to build a hospital on the same (tallgrass acreage), duh they had no foresight about the future high paying jobs a hospital would have brought to the shoreham community, so these descendents of (rednecks) sit gleefully shouting VCTORY over tallgrass, yeh, once an ignorant redneck, always an ignorant redneck!

Ode to Jane Bonner:

Where have all the careers and jobs gone,
Long time passing,
Where have all the taxpayers gone,
Long time ago,
Where have all the voters gone
Gone with every,everyone,
When will Jane Bonner learn
When will she ever learn,

Verse 2

Here comes election day,
Here comes the throng,
Here comes election day
Time to vote out Janey Bird
When will Jane Bonner learn
When the voters bounce her out
When will Jane Bonner learn
When there are no more Jobs
When there are no more Jobs
