MOUNT SINAI, NY – During a recent General Meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature, Resolution 1217-2021, sponsored by Legislator Sarah Anker, was unanimously passed to transfer a Mount Sinai property from the inventory of the Suffolk County Department of Public Works to the inventory of the Suffolk County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation. The newly transferred undeveloped 5.17 acre property will be preserved as open space.
The transfer of this property to the Suffolk County Parks Department ensures that it will remain an undeveloped property, said Legislator Anker.
With the further overdevelopment of Long Island, we owe it to our community members to protect our drinking water by setting aside parcels for open space preservation.
The 5.17 parcel in Mount Sinai lies adjacent to the proposed Mount Sinai Meadows Development. Local community members from the Mount Sinai Civic Association supported and advocated for the transfer of the property to the Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation through letters of support.
