Thanks to everyone who followed the live updates on Twitter and through this site. The hearing went much longer than expected, but we got what we wanted.
I will follow-up later on tonight with key take-aways from today's meeting, but I wanted to make the official announcement here:
Today, the Town of Hempstead voted unanimously to accept the Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS) for public review. This kicks off a 45-day public comment period that will run from the middle of this month through August 31, 2009.
Public hearings are currently scheduled for 9:30 AM on August 4, with a likely second session in the afternoon and a potential session at night, either that date or a later date.
The hearing is scheduled for the John Cranford Adams Playhouse, a 1,000-seat theatre on the campus of Hofstra University. This is the big opportunity to have our voices heard; please begin to make your plans now.
I will be back later with more details.
