Join the 90/10 Coalition Today

Be Part of the Future of Nassau County

“New Suburbia”, County Executive Tom Suozzi’s plan for the future of Nassau County, is ready to be unveiled to the public next week. In order to gauge support for the plan, the 90/10 Coalition was born – a group of individuals, businesses, organizations, elected officials, and others who support the County Executive’s view that future growth in Nassau County should be encouraged in 10% of the County. The rest of the County should continue to preserve and enhance all that is currently good about the County.

Click HERE for a summary of the 90/10 Coalition. Please look over this material and agree to be part of the solution today. Email the County Executive at and say, “I want to be part of the 90/10 Coalition.” Give your name and you will added to the list.

The County Executive will hold his next meeting on the Master Plan on Wednesday, September 23 at 11 a.m. on the lower level of Nassau Coliseum. All are invited to attend; however, seating is limited. Please email ( or call (516.578.5447) and let the 90/10 Coalition know if you will be able to share the morning with the County Executive.

At this meeting, the County Executive will explain the 90/10 Solution and announce the charter members of the 90/10 Coalition -- those people, organizations and businesses that have already told us that they are willing to say, “I support the 90/10 Solution to Nassau’s Future”.

We look forward to seeing you on the 23rd and hope you will join the 90/10 Coalition.

QUESTION: Rather than keeping 90% and changing 10%, might we consider revising the percentages, particularly for the unincorporated areas of Nassau County, and largely in the Town of Hempstead, where 90% of what residents have -- blight, brownfields, declining downtowns, among other byproducts of neglect -- is prime for future growth?
