As we draw closer and closer to the very important August 4th public hearing on the Lighthouse Project, the project continues to make headlines in the local papers. Opening Newsday this morning, Eden Laikin has an article on Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray. Apparently, the town has it’s own YouTube channel and recently uploaded a two part video showing Kate Murray talking about the review process and for the most part almost gives her support for the project.
The video, produced in a talk-show format with Murray being interviewed by her spokesman, Michael Deery, has been uploaded to YouTube.
It provides a brief overview of the Lighthouse proposal and outlines the town’s state-mandated environmental review. It also invites Long Islanders to attend an Aug. 4 public hearing on concerns about how the project may impact the area and the environment.
You can watch both parts on YouTube or in the embedded clips below:
If anything, this video proves that the Town of Hempstead is conitnuously working dillgently on the review process, even though they have kept quiet on it more than anyone would have hoped. Over the last few months, little, albeit positive signs have been emerging – giving supporters of the Lighthouse Project and Islanders fans hope that a shovel can make it into the ground before Charles Wang is forced to explore “other options” after his self imposed October 3rd deadline. Only time (unfortunately) will tell, but I have a good feeling about the momentum that has been underway and I am excited for August 4th, I will be there – will YOU?
