Lake Ronkonkoma Civic Organization

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

If you missed the November meeting last week, here are just a few of the topics we discussed:
• Brookhaven Town Councilman Neil Foley attended the meeting and provided a number of community updates and engaged in discussion on the following:
⁃ Proposal to create a "pocket park" on land owned by the Sachem school district.  The parcel is located at the corner of Union Avenue and Coates Avenue.
⁃ A proposal off of Union Avenue to build apartments in a residential area will apparently not go forward. However, the property owner has been issued violations by Brookhaven Town related to current use of the property.
⁃ Proposed 7-11 on the corner of Hawkins & Portion.
⁃ Newton's Garage parcel.
⁃ Michael Murphy Park homeless person issue.
⁃ Paring problems at the hub apartments.
⁃ Hawkins Avenue bridge over the Expressway - why has one lane been closed for months?  Is the bridge sound?
⁃ Proposed 7-11 on the former miniature golf parcel.
⁃ Union Avenue paving project.

• The Lake Ronkonkoma Historical Society will be holding their annual Holiday Party on December 11th at Trio's from 1 PM to 5 PM.

• The civic organization, the chamber and the historical society meeting will be meeting to discuss ways to integrate residents of the hub into the Hawkins Avenue business corridor.
