Kings Park residents will hear out the latest proposals and updates on the area's industrial businesses and Nissequogue River State Park on Thursday.
Kings Park Civic Association will host its monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, in Room 101 of Kings Park High School. Featured guest speakers are Toby Carlson, owner of Carlson Associates, and John McQuaid, chairman of the Nissequogue River State Park Foundation.
Carlson will give a presentation to the civic association on Carlson Associates' latest proposal to build an indoor organic yard waste recycling facility at 140 Old Northport Road in Kings Park.
Carlson Associates sent the town a letter dated Aug. 6 stating it would prefer to build an indoor organic yard waste processing facility instead of an asphalt plant and cited its merits.
Frank DeRubeis, Smithtown's Planning Director, has said the recycling facility proposal "has merit" but has requested two months time to study it. The plan would require Smithtown Town Board to amend town code, as the town eliminated the operation of recycling facilities from all town codes in 2003 except for automotive and scrap metal, according to DeRubeis.
John McQuaid is expected to discuss the latest developments of the Nissequogue River State Park and its foundation. The park was cleaned up during the International Beach Cleanup day on Sept. 21.
The civic association''s leadership also has listed plans to discuss the Town of Smithtown's injunctions against KPE and Jezco, along with the latest housing proposal.
