The meeting was opened to the public:

Dell Anne VanVleck, 15 Greenmeadow Dr., #403, President of the Board at Village Commons, addressed the Mayor and Board of Trustees to ask for assistance with the increasing problems and quality of life issues the residents of Village Commons have been experiencing due to noise, parking, and littering since the opening of The Villager Bar and Restaurant.

Thomas Bernagozzi, 17 Strong Avenue, spoke to the Board about the dangerous situation that exists in front of his house with the curve on Strong Avenue.  He asked if anything could be done to lessen the chance of damage, such as installing a higher curb in front of his house, and posting a sign warning of the upcoming sharp curve in the road.  He asked if the Village would repair the fence in front of his property and suggested that the Village install “No Parking” signs along Strong Avenue to cut down on the congestion and dangerous situation caused by residents parking in the street.

Christopher Walsh, 40 Stowe Avenue, addressed the Board to give them an update with regard to the vacant house on his block, 46 Stowe Avenue.  He commented that aesthetically it has improved, but there are still ongoing problems with people going into the house, vandalism, animals, etc. He requested that Code Enforcement patrol the area more frequently if possible.  Mr. Walsh also wanted to make the Board aware of the dangerous situation on the north end of Stowe Avenue at the corner of Railroad Avenue; the high fence prevents drivers from seeing oncoming westbound traffic.

Frank Curtin, 420 Fire Island Avenue, congratulated Trustee Davida on the great job he has done with the Village pool.

Meeting adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
