SEWERS FOR PLANDOME ROAD
We Support this Project
The Manhasset Chamber successfully brought awareness to the community regarding the petition for proposed Sewer project on Plandome Road. The project would benefit economic growth, including bringing in businesses that would otherwise have difficulty in cesspool areas and cutting down on expenses for existing businesses.
SUPPORT SEWER SERVICE FOR PLANDOME RD BUSINESS DISTRICT
There is a growing concern that continued use of cesspools in our Plandome Road business district is both expensive and bad for our environment, especially the impact of cesspools on the water quality of Manhasset.
Sewers in the commercial district will help reduce vacant store fronts, add new businesses, and increase tax revenue to the economy in out area. Restaurants could expand their seating and new restaurants could open providing more social opportunities for residents.
Sewers can also improve the water quality of Manhasset Bay, which has been found to have dead zones caused by nitrogen and coliform from fecal matter, The study indicated that nitrogen discharges into Manhasset Bay would be reduced if the area is sewered.
For these economic, social and environmental benefits, we support this project and call on our Town of North Hempstead and NYS elected officials to pursue grant funding to make this project a reality for Manhasset.
