Folks!

C A L V E R T O N C I V I C MEMBERS & NEIGHBORS !

The following DRAFT RESOLUTION from our Planning Board will be VOTED ON TOMORROW, Th, 11/3/22, 6pm mtg !

All those “WHEREAS” clauses below 👇 describe not only a moratorium, but also the necessary inclusiveness of all projects !
If you’d like to skip to one of the “BE IT RESOLVED” clauses then this will hopefully give you a warm sense of satisfaction while your smile lights up your face:

“ …RESOLVED, that the Riverhead Planning Board hereby recommends that the Riverhead Town Board adopt a moratorium on all development applications, including but not limited to Site Plan Applications, Special Permit Applications, Subdivision Applications, as well as Applications for Use and Area Variances located within the Industrial A, Industrial B, and Industrial C Zoning Use Districts within the Hamlet of Calverton (Zip Code 11933) for the reasons stated herein, and in order that a thorough and comprehensive review and analysis can be conducted as part of the ongoing Comprehensive Plan Update; and be it further..”

Calverton warehouse distribution center faces opposition from residents at Planning Board hearing - Riverhead News Review

Riverhead residents raised a litany of concerns to a proposal to construct a large warehouse distribution center in Calverton at hearing before the Planning Board Thursday. The hearing was technically a “draft public scoping session” on the proposed center that would be located on Middle Road, o...

E-Blast dated: September 3rd.

Calverton Civic Members and Neighbors,

Good Saturday of Labor Day Weekend to each of you !

UPDATE:
Thursday night’s North Point Developer’s “Public Scoping Session” to extend to Sept 15th by Chairwoman Waski.

Result of combined elements of:
1) addressing the technical difficulties:
Tech was 1/2 hr late to mtg, Zoom — getting into mtg difficulties then many minutes later it was discovered speakers in town hall were “blown out” and
2) (hopefully) my direct request to either “table the topic or extend the deadline 30days.”

So, we have 14 days as a result. Thanks to board member Janice for the suggestion !

WHERE WE GO FROM HERE:
A very large effort in Calverton itself must be coordinated involving Wind Crest East, Foxwoods & I’m hoping Calverton Meadows.

That’s potentially reaching approximately 125 + 100 + 300 = 525 residents via their HOA email distribution lists. Of course, the ENTIRETY of our GCCA E-Blast readers (all of us) will add to that number.

I have already begun re-visiting members in each of these clustered communities to strengthening our bond and re-request our E-Blast be disbursed to their HOA members list. These are private lists that we do not disseminate to directly.

Our first civic mtg will be AFTER Sept 15th on the following Thursday, the 22nd* at 6:30pm.

*Yesterday, Riley Elem contacted me about a scheduling conflict (School Open House) w our third Thursday so I chose Sept 22nd in order not to miss a mtg in Sept.

From our last (June) mtg, here are the agreed upon 3rd Th fall 2022 GCCA 6:30pm mtg dates:
Sept 22nd*
Oct 20th
Nov 17th
Dec 15th
Please add them to your calendars if you haven’t already:)

Danielle Harrington Kilfoyle is the new resident on Middle Rd. who spoke on 9/1/22 at the podium during the Public Scoping Session. Her total evisceration of the FEIS is commendable. I’ve been in touch w/her via email several times before that mtg. and she’s got more to add ! So, I’ll be coordinating w/her.

Adding to our Calverton effort several civic leaders (7) across Riverhead have met via Zoom to include a strategy of a large effort across Riverhead, underway now, to address this enormous industrial warehouse explosion exploiting our outdated 20 year old 2003 Comp Plan.

Think: online petition, individual letters, “bodies in seats” at PB & TB mtgs.

Dates of Town Board mtgs for rest of year:
https://www.townofriverheadny.gov/pview.aspx?id=17086&catid=119

Dates of Planning Board mtgs through Oct:
https://www.townofriverheadny.gov/pview.aspx?id=3748&catID=118
Then, it continues 1st & 3rd Thursdays.

Basically, we are calling for an industrial warehouse moratorium to pump the brakes so our unprofessionally delayed Comp Plan 2020 addresses these zoning issues.

Similar to the ground solar moritorium we wrote in our official request in fall 2020. Only THIS TIME the push is to get our governing bodies to “close the barn door” BEFORE the cows get out. More on that as it develops.

Thank you to our board members who wrote emails for 9/1/22 ! And to Joe G. who was able to make it as a “body in the seat” plus offer his words at the podium. And a thank you to the board members who attended via Zoom as irksome as that experience was having to make multiple attempts to enter. Additionally, 5 of our members were in attendance as “bodies in seats”, thank you !

In all, there were +\-18 people from across Riverhead who were able to get on Zoom. These numbers are good - we need to INCREASE them for Sept 15th !
Think: 50+.

Let the mtg get extended on account of TOO MANY PARTICIPANTS on Zoom !!!

We’re on our way to addressing this industrial warehouse project glut in Calverton.

Sincerely,
Toqui:)

PS. For reference here is the draft scope:

Ma*****na advisory group finalizes recommendations for locations of ma*****na businesses in Riverhead - RiverheadLOCAL

“There were also concerns raised about potential ma*****na businesses in the Rural Corridor zoning use district, which lines parts of Middle Country Road in Calverton and Main Road in Aquebogue and Jamesport. Prudenti said the zoning would allow on-site consumption lounges because the business would be considered a café, which is an allowed use in the Rural Corridor zoning use district. The Rural Corridor district also allows retail stores or shops on properties with frontage on Main Road between South Jamesport and Washington avenues “and their logical extensions”.”

https://riverheadlocal.com/2022/03/31/ma*****na-advisory-group-finalizes-recommendations-for-locations-of-ma*****na-businesses-in-riverhead/

Riverhead Town’s ma*****na advisory committee will recommend to the town board that ma*****na businesses be integrated into current zoning districts and kept away from certain land uses, including schools, libraries, places of worship, parks and beaches, with 500-foot to 1,000-foot setbacks.

“Calverton intersection
This intersection had 40 crashes between 2016 and 2019, according to the state.

The posted speed limit along Route 25 at the intersection in Calverton is 50 mph and there are no turn lanes. Edwards Avenue has a 12-foot travel lane in each direction and the speed limit is 40 mph.

The DOT seeks to widen the intersection and add turn lanes on all approaches. An ‘exclusive’ left turn lane is proposed for Road 25 at Edwards Avenue. “

January 2022: Do you know?

“Riverhead Town Board work sessions are customarily held on Thursday mornings.

But the press and the public didn’t have to be notified, according to the deputy supervisor, because work sessions are not meetings set by resolution. Say what?”

Community Housing in the Spotlight

“If approved by voters at November’s referendum, there would be several changes to both the Community Housing Fund and the Community Preservation Fund to ensure that neither fund places a burden on people looking for an affordable home.

The first $400,000 of the sales price would be exempt from both the Community Preservation Fund and Community Housing Fund taxes in Southampton, East Hampton and Shelter Island towns, while the first $200,000 of the sale price would be exempt from the taxes in Riverhead and Southold towns. This exemption would only apply to transactions of $2 million or less, ensuring that people who are buying luxury homes pay more in to the fund.

Mr. Thiele’s office has calculated that people will pay less than they are paying now into the Community Preservation Fund for transfers under $1 million on the South Fork and on Shelter Island, and for transfers of $400,000 or less on the North Fork and in Riverhead.”

Spirit's Promise to collaborate with Stop the Violence to help people suffering from pandemic - Riverhead News Review

Caring for each other….

““We’re looking to collaborate with Spirit’s Promise because they have the staff and the professionals on hand that can help us to help people who are suffering from mental illnesses that may be caused by COVID,” Dwayne Eleazer, co-founder of Stop the Violence, said in an interview. “They have the professional people that will help us help them.”

Stop the Violence has been holding its tournament for about 15 years, but only became a nonprofit organization in March of last year, and Mr. Eleazer says they want to expand to help in other ways beyond the basketball tournament. These include helping people to get through the problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as trying to determine why some people haven’t gotten the vaccine yet. “

It behooves as many people as possible to attend this hearing.

Members of the Greater Calverton Civic Association are invited to attend the June 18 meeting of the Greater Jamesport Civic Association to hear guest speaker, Riverhead Town Councilman, Kenneth Rothwell. Free COVID-19 test kits will be distributed to those who attend the meeting. The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Jamesport Meeting House, 1590 Main Rd., Jamesport. Everyone is welcome to attend.
I am very upset to hear that the town is considering widening Sound Avenue to accommodate the increase in traffic. As with everything they do, they will ruin our scenic country roadway. This will encourage speeding more so than is already on our road which will increase the number of wildlife fatalities due to reckless driving. In addition, it will put at risk people that ride motorcycles. In addition, will eliminate what trees have survived the relentless so-called "tree-trimming" by companies that have no regard for the esthetics or health of the trees lining our community.

The Hamptons have never considered altering their beautiful roads to accommodate seasonal visitors, why should we? The people that come out for fall festivities and vineyard tours know it will be an all-day journey, which includes sitting in traffic and walking distances to their destinations from where they park. The traffic issues have not deterred people from summering in the Hamptons and it will not deter the people looking to get away from their concrete jungle out west. If we make North Fork resemble what they are escaping, why would they come? The farmers will suffer, the vineyards will suffer, our wildlife will suffer and unfortunately, most of all, our scenic beauty suffer.

We must let the town know we are against this utter destruction of our community!! People of the Sound Ave, community, please make note of the public meetings and let your voice be heard.

Another example (of many) of how Riverhead Town operates! TIME for CHANGE. Once again, thank you Friends of Catherine Kent for looking out for the community's best interest. An excerpt: “And certainly I think that it is not coincidental that this moratorium resurfaces after Mr. Losquadro’s project goes through,” Kent said, referring to Stephen Losquadro, NextEra’s attorney. “Mr. Losquadro actually presided over your nomination,” Kent said to Aguiar, referring to Losquadro’s presence at the Riverhead Republican Committee’s nominating convention in February, in his capacity as the Suffolk County Republican Committee’s attorney."

So Close to a Class Action Lawsuit for Endangering the lives of everyone in the Calverton and Riverhead Community as a fire a couple miles away threatened the solar farm on Edwards Ave with potentially destructive embers and ash from the fallout of the fire, obviously drew the concern of the chief as the helicopter seemed to be monitoring the fallout of the fire from above the solar farm. Are you ready with a plan? This could have been a disaster that effects us all. 50 years of potential threats to the solar farms lay ahead of us. It will only take one natural or man caused disaster to destroy our water supply, our electric grid, and cause an economic disaster like no other. Stay tuned, we will hold them personally accountable for their idiotic decision to allow our lands to be turned into solar junk yards.
What is happening with the property on Route 25 just west of Manor Rd.? All the trees have been dug up. Is the lavender farm expanding? Thanks!
How is this allowed in our town??
