Letter: A Vote For ‘Country Pointe’

We really want this new development, Country Pointe in Plainview, to come to pass.

When a town stops growing it shrinks and fades away. We are very active participants in the benefit of the community, and have invested too much time and energy in Plainview-Old Bethpage for this to happen.

We want a new young family to live in our big house and love it as we did. We want a new place to live where we don’t have to worry about the lawn, the garden, shoveling snow and keeping nine large rooms clean and in working order. We want our kids to have to take their stuff out of the basement and garage. We want our school system to have enough children to warrant the high school tax with more young families to help pay them. We want a new mega Shop Rite and walkable paths to get to it. We love the idea of a walkable path in the development.

We know that if this isn’t built, then office buildings will be constructed and much more traffic will be on the roads all at the same time. We know that we rarely have to travel during the rush hours and can drive all over at any other times with no problems.

We look forward to your approval of Country Pointe and to our new life in our new, smaller home.

Marsha and Joe Elowsky
