  • Very funny and very true….Happens all the time, try backing up at Tanger!

  • Thanks for your comments.I am a Southold native that lived in the city because my parents decided to live there. I have never forgotten my roots, my family and friends here so I moved to Riverhead town and reunited with loved ones 12 years ago.I am deeply committed to saving what’s left. If any of these developers projects would provide decent paying jobs for our residents they would not meet the opposition of local community groups. Do you think you could make it on the wages paid by a catering hall, another CVS store or whatever else “services” that developers bring to our community. The only entities that profit from these “services” are the developers,their attorneys and the elected officials who agree to zoning changes to accommodate the aforementioned and insure their contributions to keep them in office. Please do us a favor and wake up, before the beauty of our native area is no more.

    i have never forgotten my roo

  • )) Mr. Walter said his fear about calling for a moratorium is that it could end up in court, where approvals could be granted by a judge with no town input.

    My fear is Riverhead will fail to act because it is afraid.
