Town council member Valerie DiGiandomenico read a letter from the Pietrusza family of Heritage Parkway, stating the imposition of a land conservation zone on their property, owned since 1936, would have a severe adverse impact.
DiGiandomenico said although the issue isn't yet up for vote, she does not support it.
"I cannot in good conscience endorse this," said DiGiandomenico "For this family, out of 20 acres, 16 would be designated for land conservation. When you take that much land, we render their property just about useless."
Town board members will now take public comments under consideration.
"We haven't crafted the zoning fully," said Corcoran.""
