Stop Governor Kathy Hochul’s Urbanization Plan!

Save Our Suburbs - Victory

We stopped the Governor’s plan for now…

Over the last few weeks, Supervisor Clavin and the Town Board assembled a coalition of local leaders and residents across Nassau County to battle the measure – which would have mandated that localities, including the Town of Hempstead, permit Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs/apartments) on the properties of homes that are currently zoned for single-family use, including the construction of additional structures. The Town’s petition against the action garnered more than 13,000 signatures alone and was crucial to the effort. Our efforts were successful and the Governor was forced to nix the controversial plan – which had been buried in her over 5,000-page state budget proposal – in the face of overwhelming opposition from Long Island’s suburban communities.  But, the fight is not over yet!

Hochul: ADU idea is not DOA!
The Governor maintains that this provision is not DOA (dead on arrival) – and she has vowed to continue pushing for urbanization initiatives on Long Island.

Continue to fight to “Save Our Suburbs!”
Our elected officials and residents MUST remain vigilant to protect our homes, our families, and our suburban quality of life. Continue to stand with Supervisor Don Clavin and the Town Board and remind Governor Hochul that we continue to opposed her original plan and any future plans to urbanize the suburbs.
