Letter: Open Letter to the Residents of Farmingdale

We, the Concerned Citizens Association of Farmingdale (CCAF), would like to extend an open invitation for community residents to attend the May 19, 2011 civic meeting to be held at the Allen Park meeting room, 7:30 p.m. 

The agenda will be an open discussion on the following issues:

1. School Budget results, tax impacts and NYS changes…

2. Illegal housing in the community and on Long Island…

3. Redevelopment at the former Liberty site in South Farmingdale

4. Membership Drive

The CCAF is a non-profit, non-partisan neighborhood civic organization dedicated to representing citizens and homeowners of the greater Farmingdale community who wish to maintain and improve the quality of life in their community. This civic offers a forum under which local residents can come together to acquire and disseminate information. The CCAF seeks to address concerns related to: Zoning/Development; public safety; environment; and all issues collectively identified as necessary to achieve our common goal. The main goal of a civic is to help ensure that the government represents the needs of the public rather than those of special interest groups and to preserve and enhance our “small-town” atmosphere.

This goal can only be taken on with the support and participation of an active civic membership. Community involvement requires residents to be informed, participate in a dialogue and engage in potential solutions to issues. One voice can be heard, it takes many voices to be listened to and taken seriously.     

The CCAF Civic Board will continue to provide a forum for issues that are not only important to our community but also critical across Long Island. Meetings are held the third Thursday as noted. We welcome your constructive input and participation.  Please join us on Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 7:30 p.m., in the Allen Park meeting room.
