Back to the Drawing Board for Park District
At its Feb. 17 meeting, The North Hempstead Town Board voted unanimously to deny the Manhasset Park District's application seeking to acquire property under the New York State Eminent Domain law. The property in question is 7+ acres on the southeast end of Macy's Department Store in Manhasset. The Manhasset Park District Board of Commissioners, in its ongoing quest for more athletic fields for Manhasset children, had attempted to negotiate a settlement with Macy's parent, Federated Department Stores, for some time before turning to condemnation under the law of eminent domain.
