OBCA Hosts Forum on Senior Housing Complex
The developers of Mill Pond Overlook attended the July 18 meeting of the Oyster Bay Civic Association to explain their planned project of building an S-2 golden age senior housing complex on the Lizza property on Mill River Road.

(Top of the Harbour). They were met with a strong wall of opposition as residents questioned the project.
