Legislator Anker Sponsors Legislation to Acquire Middle Island Property for Open Space

Whiskey Road Parcels

HAUPPAUGE, NY – On Tuesday, October 2nd, the Suffolk County Legislature voted to approve Procedural Motion 13, which authorizes the County Division of Real Property to make an offer to purchase four parcels of land off of Whiskey Road in Middle Island owned by Stone Point Group, LLC, for open space acquisition. Legislator Anker moved forward the acquisition process in an effort to preserve this environmentally sensitive property. The preservation efforts are supported by local community members, environmental groups, and the Middle Island Civic Association. The parcels will be purchased in partnership with the Town of Brookhaven with the County contributing 70% of the purchase price and the Town contributing 30%.

“I am proud to be part of the Suffolk County Legislature which has taken a strong lead in acquiring and protecting environmentally sensitive properties to protect our natural ecosystems and our vulnerable groundwater aquifer,” stated Legislator Sarah Anker.

The County will now send an offer letter to the owners of the property, who will have 60 days to respond. If the owner accepts the offer, the County will go into contract and prepare an Environmental Site Assessment to determine if site remediation must occur before the County can close on the sale. The purchase will undergo a review by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and an acquisition resolution must then be approved by the Legislature before the County can close on the sale of the property. 

For more information, please contact the office of Legislator Sarah Anker at (631) 854-1600.
