Health Center Work Authorized?
Construction at Elmont Health Center
The Civic received numerous phone calls today
pertaining to construction occurring at the Elmont Health Center.
Residents of Locustwood Estates, the neighborhood directly south of
Belmont Park are furious.
Despite the inclement weather, with snow and mixed
rain, construction and work with machinery were taken place on Sunday,
December 21, 2008. None of the neighbors were advised and the manner
in that the work is being done have residents questioning whether it
is authorized and whether proper safety precautions are being taken.
Many questions arose from this secret construction.
Were Town Building Inspectors aware of the work, and was the roof
integrity inspected to ensure the safety of the workers, and the
future condition of the building?
As neighboring residents were not aware of this work,
residents also question whether or not the Town Zoning Board were
aware of this construction.
