Farmingville, NY - Recently, Supervisor Ed Romaine (second from left) and members of Focus East Patchogue were on hand for the demolition of a former used car lot at 550 East Main Street in Patchogue. The .28-acre property (right photo outlined in red), is in an environmentally sensitive area adjacent to the Town’s Swan River Preserve and Swan River. It is also across Main Street from Swan Lake. The Town’s Department of Recycling and Sustainable Materials Management performed the demolition and disposal of the on-site trailer/office and the asphalt parking lot. The County will maintain ownership of the .28-acre property while the Town will return it to its natural state. An additional four acres of undeveloped land just south of the property is Town-owned open space. This is the latest effort by the Town to improve the area known as the East Main Street Corridor. Pictured with Supervisor Romaine are Focus East Patchogue members (left to right) Ed Martell, Tom Berger, John Quatrale and Kevin McGiff.

Supervisor Romaine said, “Cleaning this property has been our plan for many years and thanks to Councilman Foley’s cooperative effort with the County, we are finally moving ahead. The Town has made significant improvements to the East Patchogue Corridor and now we have the opportunity to preserve more open space and protect the fragile waterways nearby.”

Councilman Neil Foley, who represents the East Patchogue community said, “This completes our plan to return this entire parcel to open space. I thank Suffolk County for partnering with the Town on this project and Focus East Patchogue for their commitment to improve the community they serve.”
