MBVEC Meeting

It's that time of the month again. The Mastic Beach Village Exploratory committee will be having their monthly meeting on Tuesday the 12th of this month (January - if you're still drunk). This one will be a continuation of the other meeting that involved the village attorney. Also, I believe they'll be showing a movie.

Per their blog:

Join us on Tuesday, January 12th at 7 p.m., Mastic Beach Fire Department on Neighborhood Road for an Old-Fashioned Night at the Movies: featuring the film "Incredible Journey: The Story of West Hampton Dunes".

Anyone who wants to know why Mastic Beach should become a village must watch this show. Verne Gay wrote in his review “"Little Village That Saved Its Sand"” in Newsday, “Explore LI” Section (Thursday, June 25th, 2009):

The first two-thirds lays out how West Hampton Dunes, once a part of Southampton, nearly came to a tragic and senseless end. The last part explores the renaissance, and how a group of longtime residents fought to incorporate into a village, which had the clout to get Suffolk County, New York State, and even the feds to swing into action – finally. Many interviews here, including with residents and Mayor Gary Vegliante, who helped lead the fight to secede, former LI Regional Planning Board executive director Lee Koppelman and Assemb. and former Southampton Supervisor Fred Thiele, who observes: ‘I guess the lesson to be learned is, never give up.’

So if you have some time and nothing better to do on a Tuesday night...

What percentage of Mastic Beach homeowners will still be afloat in
5 years? This is only a great idea
for the pelusos the kruks the Libertis or anyone else that can
afford double-digit increases to
stay in their homes.
