- - - - -.•,- , MAYOR
When I was sworn in as Mayor on April 7,1997,1 accept-ed
responsibility for the well being of all Freeport. I know the
business owners, they are my friends and neighbors. I have
walked the Village talking to the residents. I know the chil-dren
on the sports teams, the youngsters in the scouting pro-grams,
the students who attend Freeport schools with my chil-dren,
and the elderly who are contemporaries of my parents,
both native Freeporters.
As a father with children and grandchildren growing up
in this village, I want the best for every member of the com-munity.
There can be no progress here if it is detrimental to a
select segment of the population, such as the home owners, or
the business community or the schools.
Our efforts to regulate construction and development on
Woodcleft Avenue are designed to protect the integrity of
the area and improve the economy without destroying the
delicate balance of residential and commercial interests. Many
residents have come forward and asked us to support the new
A A A A A A- A A A A A A A
casino cruise operations. Others have just as adamantly plead-ed
with us to stop these enterprises in order to preserve and
protect the residential nature of the neighborhoods adjacent
to Woodcleft Avenue. I have stated repeatedly both publicly
and in print that the issue is not gambling vs. no-gambling,
but rather the quality of life and compliance with our codes.
I have also stated that the new moratorium which the Board
of Trustees adopted last October affects all new charter
boat operations in Freeport, whether they offer gambling
activities or not, pending the completion of the Village's
Comprehensive Plan. Woodcleft Avenue and the surrounding
streets are already congested with vehicular traffic even
without the addition of new charter boats. The waterways are
similarly congested: ~ "~ "
In addition, we anticipate the beginning of reconstruction
of Woodcleft Avenue this fall, a project estimated to take 18-
24 months to complete. The project is designed not only to
revitalize Woodcleft Avenue, but also greatly to reduce flood-ing
in adjacent streets such as Ocean, Miller, Nassau and Long
Beach Avenues and the nearby cross-streets. Of necessity, this
project will cause disruption to businesses and residences in
the area during the period of construction
We must deal with these problems intelligently and
patiently in order to minimize the disruption. Attracting large
numbers of additional vehicles and charter buses in the
middle of all this activity makes little sense.
We are in the process of finalizing a Comprehensive Plan
that provides a detailed plan of action for the future of
Freeport. We have seen in the past how ill-conceived and
badly timed construction and development has not improved
the economic health of our Village. We want to avoid those
kinds of mistakes by taking the time and effort to plan care-fully
and in a prudent manner Freeport's future.
As the Mayor of all Freeport, I can do nothing less.

Ex-Captain Steve Cooke was running errands in Westbury with
his son last December when he noticed smoke coming from an auto
body shop. Cooke told 5-year old Corey to remain behind the fence
where it was safe while he ran into the burning building. Cooke

"FREEPORT IS PRO-BUSINESS," SAYS HOME BUILDER

When Ron DeMarrais was searching for a site to build 10 upscale
waterfront homes he looked at several communities. "We checked
out towns and villages along the South Shore," said Mr. DeMarrais,
President of DeMar Contracting Ltd. "Freeport was the only area
where the local officials went out of their way to help us. Freeport is
definitely pro business, they know what has to be done, and they do
Mr. DeMarrais met with representatives from the Village
Attorney's Office and the Building Department to. review his plans
for the property at the southern end of Gordon Place. He also
arranged a meeting with the residents of the street to learn what
their concerns were regarding the development of the property. The
site had been the location of the Fred Chall Marina, which had fall-en
into disrepair in recent years.
Deputy Village Attorney Stephen Malone said, "Mr. DeMarrais was
more than willing to comply with the requests we made. We asked
for additional lights, and he accommodated us, we suggested
changes in the boat slips, and he agreed. He is the ideal builder to
work with; he respected our recommendations and implemented
Ground was recently broken for the ten waterfront homes
which are expected to sell for approximately $350,000 each. Mr.
DeMarrais said he has accepted binders from several prospective
buyers already. "These houses" are"great~Buys,~they"are" solid, well
constructed homes in a great location with a spectacular waterfront
