Lighthouse Hearing Tuesday, September 22

Come Out To Support Nassau's Future

On Long Island, we not only save lighthouses, we build them!

A public hearing before the Hempstead Town Board has been scheduled for the Lighthouse project tomorrow and all supporters are needed to attend. The hearing will take place on Tuesday, September 22nd at the Adams Playhouse, on the campus of Hofstra University.

The meeting will run in two sessions. The day session will run from 9 am to 5 pm with a one-hour break from 1 pm - 2 pm. The night session is scheduled to run from 6 pm to 9 pm.

This next step makes all the difference to those who want to see the Nassau hub revitalized, and the dream of a new suburbia become a reality.

At the last public hearing, those in attendance had the opportunity to voice their thoughts on the environmental impact of the project. This upcoming sessions will focus on the zoning of the entire project.

Why is it important to have a multi-use development plan at the Coliseum site? What are the benefits of smart growth? Why does Long Island need this?

This is your chance to tell Supervisor Kate Murray and the Town Board what you think.

A strong showing at this hearing is necessary to demonstrate public support for the Lighthouse project.
