  • This is just bending the rules to make money. The Pine Barrens should be left alone. Do you really think they were planning on building $369,000 homes back in 1993. Grandfather clause in this…

  • With so many homes in Suffolk County either vacant or under forecloser, this should never have been started. who in the world can afford these homes? Certainly no one working on this Island, except maybe policeman.And most of them have homes already…We need more green areas not more homes….
