Community Residents Comment on AvalonBay
The town hall hearing room was filled with residents of the Oyster Bay and East Norwich communities on Tuesday, Dec. 13 as they came to express their opinions on the planned 300-unit apartment complex being proposed by AvalonBay Communities and Island Properties for the old Hallock property on Pine Hollow Rd. The hearing was part of the environmental assessment for the project and was a scoping session to add residents' suggestions for things they felt should be included in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to be prepared by AvalonBay.
Oyster Bay Chamber Regroups
The Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce is reorganizing itself. It has closed its office at 34 Audrey Avenue and Executive Director Toni Junjulas is no longer with them. W. Adam Mandelbaum, Esq., spokesperson for the chamber said, "We are going under a restructuring to become more efficient, and more aggressive for the Oyster Bay businesses interests. We've cut our overhead significantly, by using our board members to volunteer their services and facilities. We are using my office at 10 Audrey Ave. for board meetings temporarily and I am responding to phone and mail inquires for the chamber.

Whereas last year's run featured 30 mile an hour winds and freezing rain, this year's edition on Nov. 27 turned out to be one of the most beautiful days of autumn, and a field of 524 intrepid cross-country runners showed up to enjoy a picture-perfect morning of running 5 kilometers through the trails of Stillwell Woods in Syosset.
