What we heard from Sayville

For more than four years, we’ve been listening carefully to Sayville residents and their organizations regarding Greybarn Sayville. Here’s what we heard:

N
Sayville told us that they wanted to see green and landscaped vistas.
N
Sayville told us that they wanted ecologically-meaningful open space that would restore the site’s ecosystem impacted by the former golf course’s use of non-organic fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides.
N
Sayville told us that for decades sewers have been greatly needed in its downtown to improve small business viability, reduce operating costs and, especially, to reduce the flow of nitrogen into the Great South Bay.
N

Sayville told us that they wanted the site planning to reinforce the relationship between Sayville National Wildlife refuge and Greene’s Creek to promote an awareness of natural habitats, native plantings and stormwater patterns to foster the creation of sustainable environmental strategies in the community.

N

Sayville told us that they needed a multi-purpose art center with visual and performing arts spaces to bring together arts, culture and the people of Sayville where residents of Greybarn and greater Sayville could connect and get to know each other.

N
Sayville told us that four-story buildings were inconsistent with Sayville’s character.
N

Sayville told us that they wanted fewer rental homes and a mix of home-ownership with a component of residences restricted for occupancy by senior citizens.

N
Sayville told us that they saw little or no value in a perimeter park.
N
Sayville told us they didn’t want retail to compete with downtown businesses.
These are among the items that we will be considering throughout the review process
