Riverhead Backs Out of Preserve Grab if Skeet Range Proposed

Walter: Riverhead Backs Out of Preserve Grab if Skeet Range Proposed – After the county’s Environment, Planning, and Agriculture Committee green-lighted the purchase of over 300 acres in Northville on Monday, Supervisor Sean Walter said on Wednesday that he would not be interested in joining forces with the county to buy the land if the county’s trap and skeet comes as part of the deal. Following the unanimous approval by the committe on Monday, Presiding Officer Bill Lindsay, D-Holbrook, told Newsday he may try and delay the vote on Tuesday, Oct. 11 to persuade his colleagues to move the county’s trap and skeet shooting range to the property. The measure still has to pass the general legislature and obtain approval from County Executive Steve Levy in order to become final.
