Residents meet to discuss fate of Bavarian Inn along Lake Ronkonkoma

About 100 residents met Thursday to discuss the fate of the Bavarian Inn in Lake Ronkonkoma.

Neighbors gathered to develop a plan to pitch to County Executive Steve Bellone so the waterfront property can be used in the future. Many residents said the building should be torn down and turned into a park, while others fear the county-owned land will be sold to a developer.

Legislator John Kennedy says he will propose a resolution July 30 that will call for the land to be converted into a park.

In a statement to News 12, the county said, "It will look at all possible options for this property and find a solution that is in the best interest of all Suffolk County taxpayers."

The building, which was once a popular restaurant, has been vacant for the past six years and has become an eyesore in the community.
