Residents surrounding Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital spoke out at a Board of Appeals hearing at Hempstead Town Hall regarding the new 150-spot parking lot that will knock down 10 surrounding residential homes owned by the hospital.
Questions and concerns from residents included traffic, quality of life, the value of their homes being negatively affected and what this could potentially mean for taxes.
“You're going to increase the traffic flow to an area that's already overburdened. I live directly in front of the stop sign, the three-way stop, nobody stops at that stop sign now. Now you want to increase and add more parking?” asked Oceanside resident Anthony DeBonis.
Hospital officials say they’re committed to investing $30 million in the parking garage as an overall parking solution for the neighborhood and the area surrounding the hospital.
No decision had been made as of the end of the hearing at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
