The Town of Brookhaven Town Board passed a resolution sponsored by Tim Mazzei to purchase the old greenhouse property on Maple Street in Blue Point. The property, which is about 17 acres in area, will be preserved as open space and be an asset to the community of Blue Point. As open space, the site can host walking trails for outdoor enjoyment.
Right now, the site is undergoing ecological succession, but has attracted numerous migratory birds, eastern cottontail rabbits, and red fox. Over time it will provide a great opportunity for young and old alike to enjoy the outdoors.
The Blue Point Community Civic Association is hosting a meeting on November 13 at the James Wilson Young Middle School to explore development alternatives for this site. Go the meeting and express your support for open space preservation!
In the meantime contact Tim Mazzei's office and let him know you support open space preservation. Your voice counts!
