Urgent: Quick Email Letter Writing Campaign

ALL NECESSARY PERMITS REQUIRED FOR RXR TO CONTINUE BUILDING

HAVE NOT YET BEEN ISSUED!

PLEASE JOIN OUR LETTER-WRITING CAMPAIGN…
 

Just last week, we once again confirmed that the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) & the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) have not issued the necessary permits for RXR’s Garvies Point development. We need your support for a letter writing campaign using the following three sample letters. Feel free to copy, paste and email.

Just a minute of your time to send a few emails can make a difference!

Thank You!

Committee for a Sustainable Waterfront

 

1) Please copy and send the following letter to:

roger.evans@dec.ny.gov
heidi.dudek@dec.ny.gov

Subject: Wetlands and Glen Cove/Garvies Point Project

Dear NYS DEC,

I am writing in support of the comment letter(s) submitted by the Committee for a Sustainable Waterfront opposing the developer’s request for permit(s) for the Garvies Point project. I believe that a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement should be prepared.

Additionally, I’d like to call attention to the fact that this project does not conform to the NYSDEC’s recently issued (8/31/17) Tidal Wetlands Guidelines (http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/fish_marine_pdf/dmrlivingshoreguide.pdf) nor with the NYSDEC’s recently issued (11/16/17) statement regarding wetlands smaller than 12.4 acres.

Thank you.
2) Please copy and send the following letter to:

naomi.j.handell@usace.army.mil

Subject: Project # NAN-2015-00962-EHA RXR Glen Isle

Dear Ms. Handell,

I am writing in support of the comment letter(s) submitted by the Committee for a Sustainable Waterfront opposing the developer’s request for permit(s) for the above referenced project. I believe that a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement should be prepared.

Thank you.

Subject: Glen Cove – Garvies Point Waterfront Development

Dear County Executive Elect Curran & Nassau County Legislators,

I am writing to inform you that the Garvies Point waterfront development planned for the City of Glen Cove VIOLATES recently issued state guidelines (http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/fish_marine_pdf/dmrlivingshoreguide.pdf) which are critical to the protection of vulnerable Nassau County shorelines. I implore you to adhere to the state mandates for the well-being and safety of all Nassau County residents.

Thank you.

Take a moment to send the third letter to the following elected officials:

  1. Contact Governor Cuomo’s Office using this link
  2. Contact Nassau County Executive’s Office using this link
  3. Contact Senator Marcellino’s Office using this link
  4. Contact Assemblyman Lavine using this link
