After consulting with the Hicksville School District, community stakeholders and the recommendations from healthcare professionals regarding large group gatherings, the Town of Oyster Bay has postponed the Town Board meeting scheduled for this evening Tuesday, March 10th at 7pm at Hicksville High School.
The Town will provide an opportunity at a later date that better allows all residents, including senior citizens and our most vulnerable populations, to hear this proposal, participate and comment on future development plans for the former Sears site in Hicksville. Again, the meeting for tonight is postponed until a later date. The Town of Oyster Bay, and the Hicksville School District, apologizes for any inconvenience; however, this decision was made to maximize the opportunity for community participation in the process – so the largest number of residents may be heard – and out of an abundance of caution to protect the health, safety and welfare of residents.
For now, residents and members of the public are invited to learn more about the proposal and submit their comments in writing by visiting http://oysterbaytown.com/seritage or mailing correspondence to: Town of Oyster Bay Department of Environmental Resources, Attention Deputy Commissioner George Baptista, 29 Spring Street, Oyster Bay, NY 11771.
