Lake Ronkonkoma Civic Organization

Ronkonkoma Hub Groundbreaking
Representatives from the Lake Ronkonkoma Civic Organization participated in the Ronkonkoma Hub groundbreaking event on November 20th. 

Dawn Hopkins, the civic's president, addressed the attendees.  Dawn relayed how the civic has worked for many years with members of the community, with the Town of Brookhaven and with Tritec to transform the blighted area around the train station.  The goal has been to create a walkable community centered around the transportation options of the LIRR, the airport and the LIE, and also to provide much-needed living accommodations for the both the younger and more senior members of our community.  The civic is also seeking to foster a strong link between the Hub, the existing downtown Lake Ronkonkoma business district on and around Hawkins Avenue as well as the Lake itself in order to maximize the economic benefit of this project.
