Opinion

I am writing this letter as there is more that the mayor of Port North needs to clarify about the land deals that are going on. As a member of a family that owns property that abuts the acreage behind Publisher's Clearing House and Glamford Avenue I have two questions.

Recently a man was behind our house taking measurements for a retaining wall that was going to be erected. This is very good, but are the original property lines going to be restored? The village dropped the ball when they let the mining company leave without doing that. Many of us have had big chunks of our back yards slip down the slope. Since this involves restoration of property outside the village, the Town of North Hempstead should be involved so the retaining structures being erected comply with all construction and environmental guidelines.

My second question is about the transfer of the property itself. It was generally understood that this area was to be left undeveloped as part of the environmental impact statement that allowed for the building of Mill Pond Acres in the first place. Will this piece be developed?
