The Comsewogue Public Library is hosting its second Meet the Candidates night tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the library. The Suffolk County legislator and the Town of Brookhaven candidates will be on hand to answer any questions or concerns you might have.
After the candidates are done giving their speeches and answering questions, the Port Jefferson Station-Terryville Civic Association is prepared to update residents on the latest Port Jefferson Station hub study.
The first rumblings of a hub study began a few years ago after a Comsewogue Hamlet Comprehensive Plan was developed in 2008. The new study takes a hard look at development areas in the area specifically, Main Street and Route 112 (beginning at the Port Jefferson train station heading south to Nesconset highway).
Developers and analysts are reviewing the study in hopes of preserving as much of the history of the area as possible, while expanding development.
At a meeting in March, Councilman Steve Fiore-Rosenfeld, said the hub study has been received by residents with mix emotions, but said changes will be made. “With the right mix of incentives and community support this commercial corridor has such great potential to be revitalized given its proximity to the LIRR station,” said Fiore.
Tonight’s meeting will have the first update on the hub study in a couple of weeks.
