Deep within the thousands of pages of the governor’s budget is a proposed law that will essentially end single-family zoning in Nassau County and across the state. The proposal will overrule local zoning laws and will give every homeowner the right to create an apartment (“accessory dwelling unit”) in their home or on their property.
By inserting the proposal in the budget, the governor and radical lawmakers seek to avoid public scrutiny, legislative debate and A vote on a stand-alone bill. Instead, the proposal would become law once the overall budget passes.
This fundamentally underhanded and undemocratic maneuver is exactly how former Governor Cuomo and the state legislature passed their disastrous cashless bail law.
Mandating that an apartment may be placed in every single-family home will increase the number of students in our schools. While the cost to educate a student differs from district to district, according to the Empire Center for Public Policy the average budgeted per-pupil expenditure on Long Island is $32,969 per year. The increase in students will inevitably lead to higher taxes, fewer programs or both.
Ending single-family zoning will also put additional stress on the environment, including the aquifers that provide our drinking water. It will create higher demand for sanitation, sewage treatment, our electrical and gas supply as well as emergency services. There will be more cars in our residential neighborhoods and more traffic congestion, with the environmental consequences that flow from that congestion.
We all understand that there needs to be more affordable housing on Long Island, especially for our seniors. However, this radical proposal will forever erode our suburban quality of life, which I believe is exactly what some progressive urban lawmakers intend.
We simply cannot stand by and allow this to happen. It is critically important for your voices to be heard. I encourage you to call the governor’s office and other state representatives to let them know that this irresponsible proposal must be removed from the governor’s budget and defeated. I urge you to contact Governor Kathy Hochul (518-474-8390) and your state legislators to express your opposition. You can also visit: www.governor.ny.gov/content/governor-contact-form to submit comments.
Thank you for taking the time to read this message. Please feel free to email me your thoughts as well as ideas for future “eteam” messages

I am providing some text for the contact form to Governor Hochul as follows. Please modify as you wish and insert into the contact form linked in Legislator Rich Nicolello’s message. This is how we got ‘bail reform’ in the middle of the night. Don’t let it happen again- take action now!

Dear Governor Hochul,
I am informed that a proposal has been made to insert 'Accessory Dwelling Unit' text to our 2022-2023 New York State Budget bill that will be debated and brought by our Assembly and Senate for your signature. Allow me to make two important comments:
1- Any attempt to insert this proposal into the NYS Budget bill will be an attempt to hide it from the citizens of New York State who have a right to openly know what is being proposed, and also to hide it from those NYS legislators who will either not take the time for due diligence by reading the complete budget bill, or are in fact complicit in concealing it from view until it is voted into law. May I remind the Governor that actions have consequences, and that the voting public is still quite angry as this is exactly the manner in which "bail reform" was foisted on our state with tragic results.
2- Enactment of this type of legislation will undermine the safety of our communities, create unsafe apartments, and promote the creation of slum-like conditions where absentee landlords are given the opportunity to create unsafe dwelling conditions which cannot be held to existing occupancy and fire codes.
To insert this proposal in a budget bill is immoral and underhanded. This is not a budgetary item and it therefore should be proposed as a stand-alone bill where it can be viewed by all who would be affected and then openly debated. I urge you to follow sound reasoning and approach any discussion or submission of this proposal in an open and transparent manner. With all due respect, anything less is unacceptable.

Stop in and say Hello to Mery and Alan.
We are very pleased to have them as a Sponsor of our Lakeville Estates Civic Association .
Thank you Cathy Z for delivering notices to the residents nearest this location.
We were informed that the meeting will now start at 7 30 pm , not at 7 as previously mentioned .
Yes another store is almost ready to open as well in the Lake Success Shopping Center.
Mosque update from a special meeting last week.
Some 60 residents attended an informal meeting with Councilman David Adhami , leaders of the Islamic center , civic leaders and residents.
Concessions were offered by the trustees, paid security to help with traffic congestion as well as civilian patrols for the same . The overflow crowds that now attend services especially on Friday afternoons are now being offered a second location at the Elks Lodge on Lakeville Road.
The 3rd house on N 3rd street owned by the Islamic center will be demolished to allow additional parking.
The center has asked the NCPD to enforce all traffic violations,which there have been many.
The residents who appreciated that leadership was really trying to be a good neighbor, still were adamant about losing any further quality of life issues that they feel have been lost with the amount of increased traffic and the fear if a third story addition is permitted, it would open up the floodgates for further 3 story construction on Hillside Ave.
One very rational suggestion was for the Mosque to demolish the 3 rd house and see how traffic improves before the proposed expansion was granted.
Suggestions for legal parking across the street at Stop and Shop were supposed to be asked by the town official to the owner of the property, We spoke to the management today and that said , a few stores have exclusive parking rights and they would be in breach of their contracts, so unfortunately they could not legally permit the mosque from renting any spots .
The leaders of the mosque have in good faith tried but again it doesn’t matter how many tickets are issued, the problem of traffic congestion for those residents that live on N 2 nd , N 3rd , White Ave , Hillside Blvd and Stewart Ave will always be there.
There are no additional meetings planned that we know of . We will inform you when the proposition comes up to vote sometime in early October.
Former 711 on Hillside and Marcus will a combination smoke shop and convenience store.
Rumor has it that the golf course was sold and a huge storage facility is going to be be built there or affordable housing.
The property is privately owned , not the Town of North Hempstead property as some stated as well.
We reached out to management and they have not responded to our visit last week.
