The very nature of Long Island needs to change, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone wrote in an op-ed in the Long Island Press. A lack of “quality, affordable rental housing, mixed-use development, and public transit” has led to young people from Long Island to move elsewhere, Bellone wrote. Citing the $650 million Ronkonkoma Hub mixed-use project and $600 million project near the Long Island Rail Road station in Wyandanch, Bellone says “a new suburbia is on the horizon, and Suffolk County is leading the way.” [LI Press]
