What's Your Vision for Muttontown Preserve?

Let Nassau County know how you think Muttontown Preserve—and all the nature preserves in Nassau County, Long Island, New York—should be managed at a public planning meeting on Saturday, May 22, from 9:30 A.M. to 12:30 P.M.

Identify and explore community ideas and desires for the Muttontown Preserve Master Plan currently being drafted for the county by Saratoga Associates, a consulting firm.
According to county staff, the Muttontown plan will be used as a prototype for creating other master plans for other preserves throughout the county.

This is the second community meeting held to obtain community input for the Muttontown plan. A standing-room-only crowd turned out for the first meeting in March.

The May meeting will be held at The Hoffman Center, 6000 Northern Blvd.m East Norwich, NY 11732. RSVP.

The final steering committee meeting for the Master Plan of the Muttontown Preserve is being held on July 6th at 3:30 at Eisenhower Park. After that meeting, a public meeting will be held at the Hoffman Center, in Muttontown at 7pm. This is a discussion about the possibility of major and drastic changes to the preserve and the funding of these potential changes, so it is important that people attend the meeting at Hoffman Center. While cuts are being discussed throughout the park system, thousands of dollars are being spent to have studies done to create a Master Plan for the Muttontown Preserve that is supposed to be a model for the other parkland on Long Island. Nassau County funding these studies, but laying off county workers in the Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums. Ironically these cuts affect Chelsea Mansion which is also part of the discussion on the Master Plan for Muttontown Preserve. Please come to express your opinions on how Nassau County is spending taxpayer money.
