Lake Ronkonkoma Civic Organization

Planned Development Informational Meetings

Suffolk County is hosting informational open house sessions on the planned development project being proposed just south of the Ronkonkoma LIRR Station, called Midway Crossing.
The meetings are scheduled to take place at the Lakeland Fire Department, 929 Johnson Ave, Ronkonkoma, on 7/11 and 7/21 from 2pm to 8pm.
Both meetings will feature the same information so you do not needed to attend both nights.

May LRCO Meeting - Here's what you missed...

  • We discussed proposed development for the old plumbing supply site on Portion Road and also plans for the new building at the corner of Hawkins and Portion.  We also discussed the old Newton's Garage parcel.

  • Bob Martinez, Legislative Aide to Suffolk County Legislator Nick Caracappa, spoke to the civic about a number of issues including the South Hub project, helicopter activity in the area, the renaming of Farmingville Hills County Park in honor of the late Legislator Tom Muratore and proposed improvements to County Road 83.

    The Superintendent and Deputy Superintendent of Sachem School District (Christopher Pellettieri and John O'Keefe, respectively) attended the civic meeting to present information on the upcoming budget vote on Tuesday May 17th .  The tax levy will be increasing by 2.07%, within the NYS tax cap.  The main driver of the increase is the extension of the middle and senior high school class day from 8 periods to 9 periods.  Details on the budget can be found at this link:
