Clerk O’Connell joins the fight against the elimination of single family homes in Nassau County

Nassau County Clerk, Maureen O’Connell, participated in a rally with more then fifty elected officials urging Governor Hochul to reverse her position and pull back legislation built in her 2022 budget, that effectively eliminates single family home zoning across New York State.  The Governor’s budget proposal mandates that localities permit Accessory Dwelling Units, also known as apartments, on the property of homes that are currently zoned for single family use.    The maneuver has been called a sneaky assault on the suburbs, and it is certain to have profoundly negative impacts on the environment, traffic, parking, emergency services, police protection, gas and electric supply, sanitary sewers and water supply, as well as the local school systems.           

O’Connell urged everyone to contact their State Senator, their Assembly member and the Governor’s office and demand the elimination of this legislation.
