Public Hearing on Jones Beach Project

February 16, 2008 at 7:32 am Leave a comment

On March 4, 2008 at 11 am at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, there will be a public hearing concerning the proposed project of Donald Trump at Jones Beach.

PeaceSmiths urges people to attend the meeting, to see for themselves what is proposed for this ocean front property. Our understanding is that this would seriously affect Jones Beach Field 5, which is often used as a staging area for public events and non-profit fundraising efforts, in addition to taking away other public uses of Jones Beach. See information on the project below.

The Cradle of Aviation Museum is at 1 Davis Avenue (off Lindbergh Blvd in Museum Row), Garden City, NY 11530 in Nassau County. The museum’s phone number (for directions) is 572-4111.

There has been ongoing coverage of this issue in the major media. Here is some background from an alternative media source, Jim Krivo of WBAI:

The jist of things is that NYS is preparing to award a contract to Donald Trump to build a catering hall at the Beach. It’s a one bid contract, he has to put up no money, he wants NYS to pay his flood insurance, the catering fee is set at $250 per person with the prospect of rising to $500 per, there is to be a full basement to the Place, unusual for a low land area, and the prospect of possibly having the Boardwalk closed in front of the Hall so as not to mar the customers view. There would also be impact on the environment.
