Syosset Park is a state-of-the-art project that will transform the former Cerro Wire site and Oyster Bay public works facility into a one-of-a-kind, mixed-use village that will be the right fit for our community. This plan is nearly identical to the “Alternate Development” plan that our community envisioned a decade ago, and we selected instead of a mall in a referendum vote five years ago.
Syosset Park will provide prospective residents with a collection of distinctive home designs to choose from, while also offering all community members access to a 30-acre park, village center, local and specialty retail and dining, and outdoor arts & culture venues— premier amenities that will be a wonderful addition to our community.
Syosset Park will also deliver a wide-range of benefits to our local area by making significant and much-needed roadway improvements throughout the community, creating over 4,600 high quality construction and permanent jobs, and generating over $40 million in tax revenue annually, at full buildout, $12 million of which will be made available to the Syosset Central School District.
The land that Syosset Park would be located on is zoned for industrial or business/office park use. An industrial park and/or office campus is not the right fit for our community. Those uses would generate huge amounts of car and truck traffic that will degrade our quality of life and provide absolutely no benefits.
Syosset Park contains a mix of uses and destinations for the entire community, including a 30-acre park, and offers the best possible development option for the property and one that is a wonderful complement to the surrounding residential area. In addition, and most important, additional and extensive environmental cleanup and protections will be implemented beyond those that are in place today.
We must be open to ideas that will improve our community. The Syosset Park plan was forged out of OUR community’s ideas in fighting the mall for two decades. This approach, with further community collaboration to make it the right fit for Syosset/Jericho, is the best and brightest future for these long-troubled properties. This is why we must support Syosset Park— a project that presents so many positive solutions to make our Syosset/Jericho community an even better place to live and raise our families.
