Farmingville, NY – – On March 28, Councilmember Jonathan Kornreich (left) was on hand for the demolition of a vacant house located at 45 Dyke Road in Setauket. The property, which will be preserved as open space, is owned by Suffolk County and the demolition was handled by the Town of Brookhaven’s Department of Recycling and Sustainable Materials Management staff, including (second from left to right) Gary Gallo; Chief Deputy Commissioner RSMM Daniel Johnson; Vinny Guarino; and Michael Caputo. The property includes environmentally sensitive wetlands adjacent to Little Bay.

Councilmember Kornreich said, “Overdevelopment can lead to environmental damage, increased traffic, and a negative impact on the overall quality of life in our suburban community. I am particularly happy to be part of what I call ‘negative development,’ or the removal of a structure to allow for the conservation of land that is both beautiful and fragile. I am grateful to our partners at the Peconic Land Trust and to Assemblyman Steve Englebright's visionary efforts to protect this area for future generations to enjoy.”
