While I can sympathize with G. Valente’s letter regarding the Villas/Livingston, I am afraid this is another lesson in futility. The powers that be in Glen Cove are determined to literally turn Glen Cove into a city. I am open to development but almost every proposal put forth has unreasonable and uncharacteristic density for this area. The waterfront will look like a city of its own once completed. However, lower density and more thoughtful planning and design could have provided a more aesthetically appealing mixed use project.
Unfortunately, developers don’t really care what we think, it’s all about the money. Too many people who attended planning board meetings and let their voices be heard have given up the fight. I applaud your efforts, and I hope you are successful, but I am not optimistic. B. Hall
