On the agenda today at the Suffolk County Plannning Commission noon meeting: Ann Golob, director of the Long Island Index, will be showing a video that outlines many of the stark problems affecting Long Island, from economic development challenges, to high housing costs, to the outflow of young people to other regions.

The video, called "The Clock is Ticking," was initially presented with the January launch of its report, "Places to Grow: An Analysis of the Potential for Transit-Accessible Housing and Jobs in Long Island's Downtowns and Station Areas."
