Nassau County Looks at Chelsea
When Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi toured this area with a view toward economic development, he mentioned Chelsea Center as a great location for a bed & breakfast. Now, after sending out and receiving Requests For Expression of Interest (RFEI) the county is ready to discuss the suggestions. The result is that the Muttontown Village Board is considering a proposal made by representatives of the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums (NCPRM) on Dec. 8, to expand the current use of the Muttontown Preserve, Nassau Hall, Chelsea and the Malcolm Farm at the Jericho Preserve. While the county owns the acreage, the village must oversee its use according to the deed for the property. If accepted as offered, the project would use Chelsea and Nassau Hall as bed & breakfast sites; expand the current equestrian center at the Muttontown Preserve and create a stable at the Malcolm Farm at the Jericho Preserve. The process would be overseen by the Village of Muttontown boards which would give the volunteers a great deal more work to do with little return.
