Farmingville, NY - On June 2, Councilman Michael Loguercio (third from right) was at 259 Mill Road in Yaphank for the demolition of a vacant house and outbuilding that the Town purchased for open space preservation on May 1, 2020. The house, located on 2.5 acres of land, was previously used as a “rest home,” but has remained vacant for more than seven years. It lies within the Long Island Central Pine Barrens Compatible Growth Area near the Carmans River and Upper Yaphank Lake and is surrounded by more than 200 acres of Brookhaven Town and Suffolk County owned open space. Pictured with Councilman Loguercio are staff from the Town’s Department of Recycling and Sustainable Materials Management who performed the demolition.

Councilman Loguercio said, “The Town has purchased hundreds of acres of open space in the Central Pine Barrens that help to maintain water quality in this environmentally sensitive area. By purchasing this property, we clean up the neighborhood and reinforce our commitment to preserve the environment for generations to come. I thank Supervisor Romaine and my fellow board members for their support of my efforts to make it happen.”
