  • Great — another bank is being built! God knows there aren’t enough of those entities around. Let me guess….Walgreens or CVS right next to it? Hey how about a pizza place to complete the triumverate?

  • Just the other day I was thinking… “What do we need on Long Island?” And then it hit me: More Shopping Centers!

    Clearly, there aren’t enough shopping centers. And hardly any abandoned stores, sometimes only one or two per strip mall.

    And those 287 illegal immigrant construction jobs and 354 mimimum wage cashier jobs are exactly what’s needed to turn the economy around.

    This project is a great idea. So much better than some stupid trees and having habitat for woodland creatures.

  • Residents of Mt sinai have been looking for tax relief; this is a good begining, The school district was concidering lay-offs, How many teachers jobs and services would the 700 plus thousand save.

  • With the current economic conditions this is good news, people will be able to work in the building of the Village Center as well as in these new stores. The Tax revenue generated from the stores benefit the schools in Mount Sinai as well as the general tax base. Port Jefferson has their own revenue with the shops downtown as well as uptown, now Mount Sinai will have additional money from these stores. This is a well needed addition to our community.

  • Mount Sinai needs the tax revenue. I’d like to see our community go back 40 years to the lovely hamlet it once was, but WE have changed all that. Each of us feels that development should end right after we move in, but sadly, it goes on and on. We can use the jobs right now.

  • The proposed Mount Sinai Village Centre is a much needed project for our community. I have attended manyof the civic meetiings throughout the process as well as this week’s presentation and am impressed with the professionalism and overall commitment to the needs and wants of the community by the developer. A project of this type would be an asset to the area and local economy in many ways. It would create opportunities for employment and the tax dollars generated couldn’t come at a better time. We could use a New England style “face lift” along the Mount Sinai corridor.

  • This sounds like a move in the right direction. I think a project like this would benefit the community in many ways. There is a need for creating jobs that this kind of project would generate. It would be a terrific beautification project to the local community. I look forward to seeing the project through.

  • Prosperous prospects for this community and the surrounding North Shore is obvious. Pontificating with such cynicism is not a positive step. Given the economic down turn Mount Sinai cannot afford to miss the opportunity at tax revenue and job prospects…the speculation of potential development or preferences of a library are valid, however: do your homework. A library is not being offered as it would come from your tax dollars…let’s preserve the vital parts of our community and start with our children: Mount Sinai School District needs supoprt or they may take the path of fallen stars like Shoreham, Mount Sinai has failed to replace staff…so perhaps not layoffs but they are understaffed in many areas and especially their libraries. How is that irony…? The Soundview group has the best interest and the priority of the future at hand. We need to step positively, take the brave measure to invest in such initiatives that stimulate our local economy.

  • Honestly the amount of money we pay in taxes it’s a sin we don’t have a Mount Sinai library and we have to share with Comsewogue and Pt. Jeff. They should really have a library constructed there …would help the students that are right across from the development in our schools….add programs for our youth and residents to attend and cause less traffic than the proposed construction.

  • Rt 347 can not sustain any more traffic. We do not need more retail box stores(even 2 smaller box stores) . retail box stores do not produce jobs that are good for the community. Leave the woods undeveloped until we have a need for it. Developers greed should not spoil our community.

    This will not create the needed taxes for the school. So the supervisor of the school can get a raise from his $275,000. a year job.

    the public is getting screwed again .
