WHY DOESN'T GYRODYNE'S CURRENT ENVIRONMENTAL
IMPACT STUDY TELL THE WHOLE STORY?
Why did Gyrodyne exclude Town of Brookhaven from the planning process when the majority of traffic and potential harbor contamination would effect the Brookhaven infrastructure?
How could Smithtown Planning Board member Desmond Ryan NOT recuse himself from the process when he has aggressively advocated in support of Gyrodyne for decades? Only after Newsday published the story did he recuse himself. We ask: How much influence did he exert over the process before he self-recused?
Why did the report overlook the development of Stony Brook University at the Research Park (8 additional buildings planned) and 3 additional parcels either directly across or within a half mile of the development?
Why is Smithtown rushing to approve a development on one of the last large tracks of land on the north shore while it's still in the process of completing a comprehensive town-wide master plan?
How can Gyrodyne's traffic estimates be so far below Nelson & Pope's 2017 report which counted 22,000 cars per day on Stony Brook Road, putting it at 60% over capacity?
How can Gyrodyne say this is the best plan for the property when many of the jobs offered will be at minimum or just over minimum wage?
How can Gyrodyne offer sewers to St. James/Lake Ave. when Suffolk County has NOT approved the plants for anything except to service the buildings on site?
Where did the toxins go? In an Environmental Impact Statement done for Stony Brook University, Gyrodyne acknowledged toxins were used in Flowerfield in the past. The report offered to the Planning Board omits mention of prior toxin use. Toxins do not clean themselves up.
