MICAns are encouraged to take action: This 6.1 acre parcel in Middle Island is one of several the TOB is asking Suffolk County NOT to auction off on October 28-30, 2014 for back taxes. It is a pristine woodland that borders Rt 25/MCR. It is in the Compatible Growth Area of the Pine Barrens and close to the boundary of the Carmans River watershed. It would, with a few additional acquisitions, serve to connect the prosed MI hiking trail between Cathedral Pines County Park and the TOB’s Twin Ponds Nature Preserve holdings. Please contact SC Executive Steve Bellone and ask him to preserve this land and the others identified by Brookhaven as being environmentally sensitive and worthy of protection against future development.
