 A new section of sidewalk  on Commack rd. that was approved 3 years ago by Suffolk County is being installed along the Hamlet property north side of Commack Road between the Commack library and Daly road. This makes our Commack community much safer because one does not  have to cross to the south side of Commack road. This is a project of CCA President Bob Semprini who followed up with Suffolk County DPW for 3 years to make this improvement happen. We  also thank Suffolk County DPW!!!!

The CCA President has  been trying for a year to find out who is responsible for taking care of the above listed  property. Finally, Public Safety found that it’s a private owner in Florida who will be contacted  about a maintenance program for the land.

A grateful thank you to Neighborhood Watch organizer and  Captain, Jay Donegon of Commack. He  made the necessary calls to the Suffolk County  Water Authority to prioritize clean up  of the water station  frontage  on Walter Court. It was  trimmed ,swept and garbage was removed. 

 Ground has not been  broken according to the Islip planning dept. for the 9000 unit apartment complex off of Commack rd. 

 Four Towns civic association represents residents from   4 Townships; Islip, Babylon, Huntington and Smithtown, because  they all  surround the Pilgrim  state property.  In March, 2017 this Heartland  project was  approved by the Suffolk County planning  board. Then the  Islip Town Board ,which controls  local zoning of the  former Pilgrim Psych center property,  finalized their approval. The full proposal is to build 9100 apartments , 26,000 square feet of office space and 560,000 square feet of retail space on the  land .  Currently  construction  has been approved for 3500 apartments to be built  between Crooked Hill rd and Commack rd.

All across New York state,  state managed  hospitals were closed and the land put up for sale under the guidance of Governor Pataki. The  basis  for selling them was to  recover enough  cash to fully pay off the New York state bonds that were used to fund and maintain the buildings.  Initially, the Islip Town  zoning  required  one house per acre for  this land, but this was  modified  on behalf of the  9000 unit development.


 HOWEVER  THE PROJECT NEEDS A SEWER CONNECTION OR A SEWER PROCESSING PLANT.  The Developer requested a reduced fee for the sewerage disposal  from the Public works committee of our Suffolk County legislature.Developer,  Jerry Wolkoff, filed a lawsuit in Riverhead Supreme Court arguing that the Suffolk County  Public Works legislative committee  was not required  to hold public  hearings and the Public works Commissioner  could make his own decision about  Heartland hooking up to the sewer plant at  a lower cost than town residents pay..  The suit says the public works commissioner has the power to negotiate the agreement that “he deems appropriate,” and argues that county agencies should proceed with negotiations for a hookup that “is not subject to the review or approval of the county legislature.”
