"Currently, our residents believe we are overdeveloped, over-trafficked, under-planned and over taxed--and, they are right and for too long, developers have driven development and residents are fearful that each new development takes from us another piece of our suburban serenity," said Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi. "We need a new vision for the future. A vision that protects our suburban dream, preserve our quality of life and expands our tax base. I call the vision New Suburbia," and the "Nassau Hub," disjointed for 25 years, will become the Nassau Centre," added Suozzi.
"It takes a long time for redevelopment to happen suddenly," says Mark E. Strauss, Director of Planning at Fox & Fowle Architects, and VP/President Elect of the New York Chapter of the AIA AIA - Application Integration Architecture . "This should not be viewed as a finished plan but as a framework for redevelopment, which may take fifty years to be realized."
