Stop Suburban Sprawl at 2,300-Acre EPCAL Site

The Town of Riverhead is currently considering a subdivision plan for 2,300-acres at EPCAL. This plan ignores the environmental and community concerns that Group for the East End and others have raised for years now. Including that this is the largest contiguous grassland habitat on Long Island, it contains numerous rare species, and directly impacts the LI Pine Barrens, a SC Special Groundwater Protection Area, the Peconic Estuary watershed and the LI Sound watershed. The proposed plan risks allowing future development that could destroy rare habitat, cause major traffic concerns, pollute our local waters with sewage, and turn the Calverton Grasslands into another horrific example of suburban sprawl. 

 

Please take a moment to send a letter to the Riverhead Town Board, expressing your concerns with the proposed subdivision plan for EPCAL.
