Thayer Lane Will be Main Entrance Exit to Village Club
The Sands Point Board of Trustees unanimously passed a resolution that will allow for the use of Thayer Lane as the main entrance/exit to the Village Club of Sands Point. At its May 9 meeting, the board formally adopted the Final Environmental Impact Statement prepared by Frederick P. Clark Associates and Atlantic Traffic and Design Engineers. The master plan will be amended to allow for the change in the club's entrance/exit. The intersection of Thayer Lane and Middle Neck Road will be regraded and reconstructed to increase sight visibility. The lane will be improved and utilized as the main access for a distance of approximately 1,800 feet before it will curve sharply to the south into the Village Club property.
Lewis Oil Requests Rezoning of Port North Property
At the meeting, attorney Peter Mineo, representing Lewis Oil, announced its intentions to create Port Plaza, a consolidated shopping plaza with Delco Plaza. Mr. Mineo also stated that Lewis Oil had been in touch with Grand Union, which, serving as an anchor, would relocate within the plaza and increase in size from 24,000 square feet to 69,000 square feet. In addition to the new Grand Union and the businesses at Delco, Port Plaza would feature other stores and two family-style restaurants. Before Lewis Oil can move ahead with its plans, it must first obtain a change of zone from the village, get approval of its site plan from the Planning Board, and receive site permits for the restaurants by the board of appeals.
Port LaCrossse Defeats Long Beach
At home on Wednesday, May 3, the Schreiber Varsity Lacrosse Team squared off against Long Beach. The Vikings had the confidence instilled in them by a 6-0 league record going into this game against Long Beach, who had a 5-1 record. The first quarter of this game started out slow, but in the last three minutes, senior Edmond Perry scored the game's first goal off a long bounce shot which found its way over the shoulder of the opposite goalie.
On the Bay
Schreiber sailors Colin Fitzpatrick, Max Hazan, Jason Hill and Doug Morea competed in the MidAtlantic Scholastic Sailing Association (MASSA) double-handed Spring Championship on May 7, sponsored by Kings Point and Rick Dominique, a member of the coaching staff at the US Merchant Marine Academy. The field of 14 teams included schools from as far away as Annapolis, MD. Schreiber placed seventh, highest on Long Island, even though they were competing without the benefit of an organized program. Many of the teams are supported with coaches, who organize after-school practices. The event was held in Flying Juniors (FJs) and sailed in 8-12 knots of breeze.
