County Renews Lease on Land Near Massapequa Preserve
Nassau County has renewed its lease on a section of land that is owned by New York State and is adjacent to the Massapequa Preserve in the Viceroy section of Farmingdale. The original lease agreement between Nassau County and New York State was for a 20-year period that would have expired on Feb. 28 of this year. The county has renewed the lease for 10 years and is in negotiations to acquire the land from New York State in a land swap deal. The new agreement does not satisfy some local residents who are upset with the condition of the land and feel that much more needs to be done to protect and preserve the area.
