Being Ignored

I live on Shinnecock Hills Road, Southampton, an isolated one-road-access community of 90 homes.

In 2008, the county widened County Road 39, creating four lanes of traffic. Our community was not taken into consideration in their planning. We have one road to enter and exit off County Road 39 — Greenfield Road — and we share this road with active businesses Bofill Marine, Hardy Plumbing and the Shell gas station.

Entering and exiting our neighborhood is extremely dangerous. Police reports regarding innumerable accidents attest to this.

We have petitioned the town to grant an access road, which would lead us onto a safe road (Hills Station Road). Despite numerous promises over the years of negotiations with authorities Jay Schneiderman and Thomas Neely, an additional access/egress road has not been provided.

Nothing has been done — we are being ignored.
