The Shoreham Civic Organization sent out a roundup today of items discussed at its Dec. 15 meeting at the Miller Avenue School.

The group said it would like to help raise funds for the planned Rocky Point Fire District 9/11 Memorial, which will include a 16-foot steel I-beam from one of the fallen Twin Towers. The note, by SCO recording secretary Michelle Belsky, said the group would look to purchase a bench or other “significant item” to help raise funds.

The fire department presented design plans for the memorial at the group’s Nov. 19 meeting. The memorial is set to be completed by Sept. 11, 2011, the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center.


The Superintendent of the Shoreham-Wading River School District, Harriet Copel, announced that she will not seek to renew her contract, which ends July 2011.


Local Law #66, which would bring changes to multifamily residential zoning, is up for a vote by the town board on Jan. 25. It was tabled from the Dec. 7 meeting.

“All residents should keep informed about this issue as it may change our quality of life significantly,” Belsky said. She added that results from a recent survey by SCO about local land use and connections to the community showed the 19 of the 34 respondents said they moved to Shoreham for its rural character.


SCO will hold its next meeting on Jan. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Leisure Glen residential community on Randall Road.
