This whole parking lot "renovation" is a complete scam. 4 months and nearly $2 millionRead Moreto basically repave a parking lot! Who is doing this work, the same guys who did the Big Dig up in Boston?! Somehow Petrone has got it in his mind that the village parking problem is the reason small business is not doing well in the village (maybe the guys at Paramount, who are always part of these parking studies/panels are planting that idea). He doesn't realize that small business is not doing well anywhere in this country. Yet he'll buy this stupid parking study and its recommendations (um, valet parking.....), hook, line and sinker, dole out taxpayers' dollars to some politically connected paving firm, and stick us all with another eyesore in the village, like the new four storey mixed use development at New York ave and Gerard.

Concerned Residents need to check HTC Ch. 186.1 Legislative Intent http://ecode360.com/7229263Read Morewhi ch states: "A. The Town Board hereby finds that the indiscriminate and excessive cutting of trees and shrubs, or specimen trees, results in increased municipal costs for the control of drainage and erosion and impairs the natural scenic and aesthetic qualities of the environment, which the Town is obligated to protect. The maintenance of large and mature trees is one of the most significant factors in maintaining the character of the Town and protection of the large and mature trees is crucial to the health, safety and comfort and general welfare of the Town, its residents and property owners. It has been well established that trees provide a natural habitat for the wildlife of our area, absorb air pollution, provide oxygen, reduce energy costs, increase property values, deter soil erosion and flooding and offer a natural barrier to noise, and as the removal of trees deprives us of these benefits and disrupts the ecological balance in nature, it is therefore the purpose of this chapter to regulate the indiscriminate destruction, substantial alteration or removal of trees in unincorporated portions of the Town of Huntington. B. Specifications and standards of practice. The Town of Huntington hereby adopts the Arboricultural Specifications and Standards of Practice of the International Society of Arboriculture as published under American National Standard for Tree Operations (ANSI A300-1995) or the most recent edition."
