Dear Homeowners,

The meeting this past Monday at the Stony Brook School titled the “25A Corridor Stony Brook / Setauket Community Visioning Forum” was held by Councilwoman Cartright and included a good variety of about 100 people who were Community Members, Chamber of Commerce, Historical Societies, Civic Groups, SBU, elected officials Assemblyman Englebright and Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn and many others. The intent of this meeting was to start from the ground up with regards to any possible proposals that may be derived from these meetings in the future.

This was not about any past proposals that may have been made some time ago or even recently by SBU students. 

There were a series of groups set up to gather opinions / ideas on various areas that we would like to address before any type of change is proposed.

These discussions included, but were not limited to Traffic, Uses and Zoning, Designs, Infrastructure, Business and University Community relations. Each of the groups discussed and came up with the things that they felt were important to them. 

Such as;

  • What is it we like about our community?
  • What would we want preserved in our community?
  • What would we like to see improved?
  • Other things we would like to see in our community?
  • What have we seen in other communities that might be an addition to our own?
  • Each group discussed and presented their collaborated answers and the results were briefly discussed and collected by Councilwoman Cartright who will tally the results for this ongoing future forums.

I wish to thank those of our members who came out and represented the Stony Brook Concerned Homeowners and clearly participated in this discussion.

It is important that many more of you attend these sessions and be part of the process because this is your community and what happens here will affect all of us. 

I applaud Councilwoman Cartright for taking this important step to coordinate this event to find out what is important to this community.

As I have said in the past What YOU allow is what WILL continue.

We have a myriad of experts living within this community and I would like to share with you one of those experts written documents that he prepared for this meeting. It lists and explains the many steps that would need to be taken before any proposed redevelopment can move forward.

Thank You
