A New Way of Thinking

“Water reuse has been increasingly recognized as an essential component in effective water resource management plans,” says the “Long Island Water Reuse Road Map & Action Plan” unveiled last week. “The United Nations formally acknowledged the importance of water reuse in 2017,” it adds. “The benefits of water reuse have long been recognized and embraced in other parts of the world,” it continues. And now, in the United States, “approximately 2.6 billion gallons of water is reused daily.” But in New York State, “large-scale water reuse projects have been limited. There are a few projects in upstate New York, and ... by Karl Grossman

Between True Seasons

Wind comes at a steady clip, and the killdeer position themselves to endure it. They dot the headland, each separately nestled on the leeward side of a grass clump or field stubble. Their white breasts give them away. Out of the wind, soaking up the sun, small bodies find ample shelter in a scrape of earth. The killdeer will be with us all season now. They spend early spring on the open fields. They follow the plow and the planter. Anyone who has spent much time operating a farm tractor knows this bird will get precariously close to your front ... by Marilee Foster

New York State Assemblyman Fred W.

The establishment of conference committees on the budget sets up a cooperative framework for resolving the differences between the budget resolutions passed by the two houses of the New York State Legislature and the governor. Joint budget committees provide a means to work toward agreements on many issues and help expedite New York State’s complex budget process. Traditionally, joint committees consist of ... 20 Mar 2023 by Staff Writer

Brighter Future

Parents, essential workers, young professionals, business owners, seniors and community leaders across Long Island agree that our antiquated model for creating community housing has failed us and that we need a new approach. The Peconic Bay Community Housing Fund, passed by referendum in the four East End towns in 2022, demonstrates that our East End residents agree. And in a January 2023 Newsday poll, 70 percent of Long Islanders said housing options on the island were a problem. The New York Housing Compact, proposed in this year’s state budget, due April 1, 2023, provides the tools that local governments need ... by Staff Writer

A Traffic Nightmare

At the recent meeting of the North Sea Citizens Advisory Committee, members discussed Suffolk County’s proposal to use the remaining 11-foot right-of-way on County Road 39 to provide pedestrian sidewalks on either side of the roadway [“Sidewalk Construction Will Mean Regular Lane Closures for Two Years on County Road 39,” 27east.com, March 8]. The following comments reflect the views of many committee members. No one present was in favor; all strongly opposed it. The proposed plan is woefully out of date. A cursory review of today’s conditions on County Road 39 reveals much has changed since the highway was widened ... by Staff Writer

A Travesty

The proposed buildings on an agricultural reserve at 625 Butter Lane in Bridgehampton contain a gross misrepresentation that, if not rejected, will set a precedent with dire consequences for Southampton and surrounding agricultural reserves. The applicant has repeatedly attempted to subvert easements and build housing on the agricultural reserve. Currently, he seeks Planning Board approval for a “greenhouse” on the reserve — misleading the planning, agricultural and zoning boards so he can build housing disguised as something it’s not. If approved, developers and attorneys will use this case to justify construction of housing on agricultural reserves. Four years ago, the ... by Staff Writer

Sidewalk to Nowhere

I have been recently apprised of the sidewalk project proposed for the west end of County Road 39 [“Sidewalk Construction Will Mean Regular Lane Closures for Two Years on County Road 39,” 27east.com, March 8], with the tone-deaf plan to disrupt already chaotic traffic both eastbound and westbound for a period of two years. Considering nothing less than the astounding traffic crisis that repeats itself every day — twice a day — the county, in its infinite wisdom, plans to spend nearly $10 million on the sidewalk to nowhere, inconveniencing 87,000 vehicles a day, creating a sidewalk that will be ... by Staff Writer
