Safety a Concern at Glenwood Road / Kissam Lane Construction Site

Work at the corner of Glenwood Road and Kissam Lane opposite the Glenwood Landing Post Office, where seven new single-family homes are planned, has created holes and depressions on the property that could be dangerous—especially for children who may wander into the site. Because of this concern, the Glenwood / Glen Head Civic Association has contacted the Town of Oyster Bay to request that the site be secured. It is our understanding that town regulations require such precautions.

The civic association has also requested that maintenance of the sidewalk be improved, as it is often impassable, forcing people to walk in the street.

According to the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC), work at the site may be curtailed for an undetermined period of time. The DEC reports that a stop work order has been issued to the owner pending approval of a stormwater plan and site stabilization (see Halt in Work at Glenwood Site Until Runoff Is Controlled, June 27).
