As a Town of North Hempstead councilwoman, I am writing to you on behalf of the many constituents and groups, who over the past few months, have contacted me regarding the increased aircraft traffic and noise. In addition, they have also notified our 311 call center about aircraft flying at very low altitudes more frequently, often over hospitals, schools, as well as residences.
It is imperative, prior to the Next-Gen program being implemented, that the FAA conduct environmental impact studies that show the effects of these increased routes on the North Hempstead community. I am very concerned about the additional routes impacting the quality of life in our town.
I will continue to speak with members of the community as well as our various government representatives about this issue.
Clearly, this is a critical matter that needs environmental study and continuing scrutiny.
I thank you for your attention to this difficult issue.
North Hempstead Town Councilwoman, Lee R. Seeman

The Water Authority of Western Nassau County opened its new 16,000 square-foot headquarters on Monday, Dec. 2 on Union Turnpike in New Hyde Park. They previously operated on South Tyson Avenue in Floral Park since 1996.
“As people walk by, even during construction, [the building] was so well-received,” Water Authority Superintendent Michael Tierney said. “It’s a modern-type building and designed to look like a water storage tank.”
While Western Nassau’s new facility is ready, Tierney stated there is still work to be done before moving in. The majority of the project was funded by a 2010 bond issuance by the water authority. It helped build the central garage and main
headquarters at the site.
