Hochul’s Housing Plan

Has anyone been following? We live on the south shore and this is something that would greatly affect our community. This would be our last straw-if this actually passed my husband and I would consider relocating like never before.

Yes it's a huge concern in our village. She's so completely ridiculous. Once my youngest graduates high school we are out of here. If I could move sooner I would but it would be too disruptive for my children.

She gets a lot of support from people in big cities - so this plan doesn’t impact them as much as it impacts us in the suburbs as they are already surrounded by high density housing.

It’s nice to see that local politicians on both sides are against her plan. As I would think most suburban residents would be.

Re: Hochul’s Housing Plan

I have a question. What does she plan to do about traffic which is already beyond horrible?

You can't make city like housing without city like public transportation. This isn't NYC- we don't have a subway system or even a good bus system.
Our roads were not designed to handle that kind of volume.

Neither are our schools, sewers, etc... Our infrastructure is not geared towards it.

It's a poorly thought out plan by a woman who obviously doesn't give a crap about those of us who live in suburban communities.

The schools really won't be able to handle it. She's awful. Praying this doesn't go thru.

Exactly. The schools will be flooded with more kids, and they will have to hire more teachers which means , higher taxes. Dont even get me started with the migrants coming in.

Hochul’s Housing Plan

Do it upstate where they have the room and use most of our taxes anyway. Long Island does enough to keep the state afloat.

I think the point is to keep the people within commuting distance of the city. The problem is the areas within commuting distance of the city are already too crowded.

I would really encourage everyone to write their reps. This would drastically change the landscape of Long Island for the worse and destroy suburbia. Someone on FB shared a link where one can find a template that voices concerns:

Re: Hochul’s Housing Plan

Interesting. I wonder what this would actually look like and how it would be implemented. New development rentals typically aren't affordable. I'm not sure how they justify costs for development if required to be affordable housing and if its not affordable housing then what is the point.

Re: Hochul’s Housing Plan

The bottom line is- affordable or not affordable Long Island is OVERPOPULATED. It takes 45 minutes to an hour to go 12 miles during rush hour.
Enough!
Enough building of housing. Affordable, non affordable, projects, luxury villas, town houses, McMansions, section 8 housing, shacks, shanties, trailer parks, tents....I don't give a shit what they are building they need to stop.

We DO NOT have the infrastructure or transportation to support any more cars on this Island.

This kind of development CAN'T happen!!! We are already overwhelmed on this little island! I drive 30 miles each way and it's an hour IN the HOV lane. LI was NOT designed for this and we are WAY past the stage where we can implement it. Too many established communities.

Re: Hochul’s Housing Plan

Invite her to come live for 3 months where she proposes this. Let her commute on the LIRR and drive the parkways! Fix the infrastructure before you overload it more. These people are delusional. I am sorry.

Exactly!!!! Unfortunately, the developers are in the pockets of the local politicians. We're screwed.

I have been trying to find the information but this morning, News 12 said there will be a meeting with environmentalist groups and officials in Oyster Bay regarding the issues with the housing proposals.

Re: Hochul’s Housing Plan

Would be a traffic nightmare. LI is already congested as it is.

Honestly I would relocate in a heartbeat if I could. Many of our family members relocated to SC. That was our plan too once my DH retired, but, now I don't know, because I have a son with special needs and the services supposedly stink down south. So I feel trapped.

Re: Hochul’s Housing Plan

This is more than an infrastructure problem - this is a significant environmental issue. Long Island is one of the only places in the entire nation that gets its water from a natural underground aquifer. We cannot add to the population density, and the waste issue without causing long term irreparable harm to ourselves, and our communities here on the Island.

I'm happy that people on both sides of the aisle see how wrong the proposal is for Long Island. It's irresponsible, short sighted, and I certainly hope the legislature rejects her budget over this. Moreover, it will only add to the problem she *thinks* she is solving - the mass relocation of New York residents. Perhaps she should focus on other things to keep people here and not creating proposals that will cause lifelong LI residents to flee.

I totally agree, and this is not just a LI issue - it’s an issue in other NYC suburbs who have strained resources as well.

As of today, the housing plan has been removed from the budget by her own party. Since she is focusing a ton of money on building a BIlls stadium - maybe a stronger focus on creating lasting jobs and housing in that area would be beneficial. I did hear, although I have not read, that LI will be getting federal funding for clean water infrastructure.
