Lisa Cohen started this petition to Town Of Oyster Bay

We live on a beautiful block with some amazing people and we are truly blessed... Except now we can't even enjoy our backyard... A place that should be an oasis is now filled with fumes of diesel fuel and sounds of back up lights and air brakes... And our son, who suffers from breathing issues, can't even have a catch outside... A trucking company has taken up space in the parking lot of a what the town calls a "light industrial area" right behind our home... I can only imagine who is reaping the financial benefit of this operation... They came to Gordon Drive, Syosset about 6 months ago and put cones out on the road and created their own "school lot" to which we called Town of Oyster Bay Public Safety to have them removed as it was a weekend and the trucks were idle and they had no business being there... If we can't have our landscaper operate a leaf blower on the Sunday, how is it permissible that the trucks are allowed to be idle all day?? They even used the town fence that is attached to our backyard as a bumper because it is all bent... What would have happened if that truck actually came through the fence and our son was on his swing set??  Then what?? Then we hear them again within a week... Turns out they took up space in the back of a parking lot right behind our house... A pop up trucking school, if you will... They came with a canopy for inclement weather and their own porto-potty... They run this school 7 days a week from 7am until 7pm... They are from College Point, Queens... They have a fully operational shop there... We filed with TOBAY CODE ENFORCEMENT - We received a call today from the office and the man who I spoke with began the conversation with "Mrs Cohen you are not going to like what I'm about to tell you..." He told me that the trucking company is applying for a permit to be there... Which tells me that they NEVER HAD A PERMIT TO BE THERE... He also told me that a "trade school is permissible in a light industrial area" to which I replied... So you actually found a way for them to stay instead of ask them to leave?? And a trucking school is a "trade school?" Who's side is the town on? Ours or a trucking company out of Queens that doesn't pay taxes to be in our town to begin with... We need this petition signed so we can go fight this battle in person on October 22nd. These trucks are idle all day long... Please help us! Sign and share!
