I sent you a DM on the meaning because you cannot say what it means on here.

Bay Shore...but only in a nice section. I dont think I would be able to buy a home in the north part or by the High School.

1) Great downtown 2) Ferries to FI. 3) Location to beaches 4) Location to Babylon 5) Access to major highways.

Bay Shore has come a long way and I believe it will only get better. They have taken a lot of the criminals off the street and have completed revitalization. Bay Shore is getting better in my opinion.

A low-income housing project is now coming to Terryville or just east of it on 112. It seems Brookhaven wants it! They are calling it workforce housing but who knows.

The developer wasn't too specific, though. They didn't mention what the actual requirements were to live in that development (e.g. An annual income of $30,000-$40,000 or something like that). At least it would give people in the surrounding area an idea of what their new neighbors would be (would they be required to have a job to live there or would they just be hanging around)

Personally, I think the area around all of the LIRR stations should be built up to take advantage of the relatively good transit service there. But this is a couple of miles south of the LIRR, so I don't know if it's a good idea.

I just read the following article: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/21/re...land.html?_r=1

It doesn't seem as if the development would have too much of a negative impact on the community.

It says that they would be marketed towards families earning around 80% of the area's median income, which is around $67,900 for a family of two in Suffolk (I think that might be a mistake. The median income is around $84,000 and I assume most of them have two income-earners and not more.) Rents would be around $1,500 per month, so overall this looks like it's geared towards young people who want to be independent, but also want to live out in the suburbs. It doesn't seem that they would be an undesirable type to have around.

Hopefully, they build some more walkable retail in the immediate vicinity of the development. A half-mile seems a bit much to have to walk to reach retail.

Just read this on northshoreoflongisland.com. It seems there putting in mixed-income apartments with mostly low income tenants next to the Highlands condos.
"Highlands Blvd 6 acres
December 05, 2011 | 05:19 PM

there is a proposal to swap the village owned 6 acres on the corner of Oakland and Highlands Blvd (currently natural grassland and forest) with a piece of privately owned property down town. A builder wants to build 96 rental apartment units on the 6 acres. Yup, thats 16 units/acre! The apartments will be 'mixed income' units....meaning several overpriced units that no one can afford, and many low priced units. Upper Port does not need a NEW development, it needs RE-development! Let's fix the crap that exists now, let's NOT cut down one of our last remaining pieces of greenspace. We do NOT have to build on every inch of land. Apartments do not improve quality of life....open space does. Leave the 6 acres alone. The only person that benefits from development of the property is the developer. The swap is for a much smaller piece of land downtown. Hardly worth it, no matter what the intended use of that land will be......

signed, Highlands OWNER"

You have to consider that the area is only a couple of blocks from the LIRR, and so it makes sense that the developer would want to build that densely (16 units per acre sounds like small townhouses). Not to mention that it's about a mile from Port Jefferson's downtown.

I mean, I'd be opposed to taking away the green space if it were further away, but not when it's 2 blocks from the train. That's what many areas of NJ and Westchester are doing: Building up the neighborhoods around the train stations.

I just deleted a response after having googled the Village's meeting agenda and learning the correct address. This plan, which I think is too dense for 6 acres, falls in line with the revitalization plans. There should be more clarity as to what is involved.
