April, 2014

The Noyac community faces many challenges: The Noyac Road reconfiguration at Cromer's Market and The Whalebone General Store has begun. According to Superintendent of Highways Alex Gregor who spoke at our NCC April 8th meeting, the poles should be moved before Memorial Day. Construction will temporarily halt for the summer season and resume in the fall.  


At this same April 8th meeting, many Noyac and North Sea residents expressed concerns on the speed of traffic along Noyac Road to Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, and to Council Women Bridget Fleming and Christine Scalera. All these Town officials listened to our comments and agreed that enforcement is key to slowing traffic down. This perilous situation continues everyday in Noyac. (Please note that Lt. James Kiernan will address this issue at our June 10th meeting.)


Concerns for helicopter and aircraft noise once again were discussed with our Town officials. The Noyac Civic Council, together with elected and appointed officials from Southampton, are demanding that a solution is worked out with East Hampton Airport before the summer season. Charles Neuman, Bob Malafronte, Barry Holden and I have discussed this matter personally with Congressman Tim Bishop who is attempting to find a solution through the FAA.


Finally, concerns for the quality of our drinking water were presented by Bob DeLuca, President of Group for the East End, at our March meeting. Mr. DeLuca explained that test wells at the Sand Land site must be installed since that operation sits above our sole source aquifer, the source of our ground water. Again, the NCC has  been working with Town and NYS officials to monitor this situation and to protect our ground water.


The Noyac Civic Council is the best advocate for Noyac. By your participation at meetings or by your calling elected officials directly are we able to achieve our goals of improving quality of life issues in Noyac.
