This is the attention we need. Do NOT go silent!!! Hear Petrone, then go over his head. Remember the developers who built this place!! PETRONE DID NOT WANT THIS COMMUNITY!!! Where is Bob Fonti??? Dr. Spencer is there listening to us, remember he is a Doctor first a politician second. If Petrone does not act we will be back next month and the month after as many tims as it takes. We will NOT o away. For four years we have heard the community needs to band together, it has with no help from the HHA or the HDFC, well I may stand corrected it is because there has been NO HELP. Cannon wants to move next door, if I were them I would rethink it!!

For the record...It takes courage, stand up speak out, we are stronger than the threats!!! We are bonded together looking out for one another. These "officials" and "developers" are people, do not fear them, we elect them into office or they would not be there THEY WORK FOR US-WE DON'T WORK FOR THEM!!! Find out why our homes were built by contractors from out of state, no one local. Find out why the own had to step in and force the developers to pay union sclae to the contractors.
Then find out if they were paid so well, why the houses are built like ****? Why aren't the simplist things such as Punch List's complete after 4 years.
Why can offensive criminals stay here? Where is the Town's HUD rep?
We are nothing more than a failed experiment to these people WE ARE NOT FAILURES!!

Petrone & the Town knew EXACTLY what was going to happen there. Look at who gets the section 8 housing....it looks exactly like Fairgrounds Ave. NO SUPRISE !! For those who bought after the lottery...you got fooled badly. Its going to get worse because the town does NOT care, and feel they need to provide MORE low income (rental) & section 8 housing. Notice if you bought you could NOT sell or rent for so many years, but OTHERS can ??????????

You are cursing at people who pay taxes so you can have your affordable housing. You can get a apartment out here and be able to pay the rent by working at McDonalds full time. You are NOT forced to stay there. I hope you burn to death in a meth lab explosion.

Maybe if you didn't need tax payer money to pay for your housing you wouldn't live near scummy drug dealers and dirtbags.....

I think that these HUD and section 8 programs stink where they are putting these losers into decent suburban areas. The general idea is that everyone should have a fair chance at the American dream, but most times these people do not care for the properites and are always involved in some kind of mischief. They lower the values of the properties. I should know, I have one of them as a neighbor, and he has mowed his lawn only twice since November!

Agreed. They expect the best of the best and expect not to pay for it. I work hard and it's frustrating to see people get government checks that don't even put forth the effort to improve their lives or even contribute positively to their community.

Nobody in town government can tell it like it is because they want to get re elected. No controversy. Why create low income housing for unworthy people who turn it into a
dump. If you can't afford to live here than move and stop playing the victim game. if ya don't like the noise in Centerport than move to a quiet cul de sac and stop wining! Mc Cain's former senate friend was spot on when he said we have become a nation of winers! Frank Petrone is a coward a notorious house flipper. He
is our Herman Goring. New blood is sorely needed!

Wait why are the rich people complaining about music up until 11pm ? ISnt that legal? I thought you can do that up until 11pm

So the rich people would rather the vanderbuilt museum go under and be split up into housing where anybody can move in ?

Lets see how much these rich people will pay to get the vanderbuilt museum to be quiet.

Then maybe you should move somewhere that you can afford to live. Did you think that you were going to get AFFORDABLE HOUSING and live next to people that actually PAY for their homes? The idea of affordable housing in a good one, but unfortunately if someone can't afford to buy a home, they usually can't afford to keep up with all that comes with owning a home, and then these homes, and neighborhoods, turn to ****!

Where does it say anything about load music?? And as for Millennium Hills..I won my house I pay the same taxes as everyone else in fact my property taxes are higher than some of yours. I pay my mortgage on time plus common fees and homeowners insurance. We are a two income family and with the way the market was on LI we could not afford the down payment anywhere else. That by no means gives the government any reason to make us live like we are scum. I get no government aid aside from the grants on my home..never have...I grew up in a safe, nice LI neighborhood and through lies and deceat ended up living in a neighborhood chock full of criminals

You get what you pay for, and unfortunately, in this case it rings true. Suffolk and nassau counties have been offering "lotteries for homes" for years, and they are always in the less desirable neighborhoods. They are able to do this because those who own land their, that is undeveloped, dont want to waste the money to build, and to sell cheap due to the surroundings, school destrict, etc. So they sell to the local govt, and the govt gives it away, in hopes of enriching the community. Never works
