Lake Ronkonkoma Civic Organization

March LRCO Meeting - Here's what you missed...

Please join us at our monthly civic meetings, you don't need to be a member to participate (but it would be great you did become a dues-paying member). 

If you missed last week's meeting, here are just a few of the topics we discussed:

  • The civic has started planning for this summer's concerts at Raynor Park.  More info to follow on dates & performers.
  • The civic's board met with the owners of a vacant strip shopping center on Ronkonkoma Avenue that will be converted into a house of worship.  We provided input on the proposed changes to the building.
  • A developer is proposing a fast food restaurant on Portion Road.  The civic's board reviewed the plans for the new building and provided feedback.
  • We had an update from the Sachem Library director on events and programming:  The monthly newsletter will be smaller in size starting with the May issue so keep an eye out for it.  The annual library budget vote will be on Tuesday April 5th from 9:30 AM to 9:00 PM.  A new community garden will be open in May.  A book drop will be placed at Brookhaven Town Hall in Farmingville sometime in April.  The library will have three outside summer concerts on June 24, July 22 and August 19.
  • Bob Martinez, Legislative Aide to Suffolk County Legislator Nick Caracappa, spoke to the civic about the Downtown Revitalization Grants being administered by the Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Planning.  We discussed possible grant projects for downtown Lake Ronkonkoma and the process to obtain the grant funding.
