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!
Committee for a Sustainable Waterfront
1) Please copy and send the following letter to:
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.
2) Please copy and send the following letter to:
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.
3) Please copy and send the following letter to:Dderiggiwhitton@yahoo.com
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.
