A Nesconset civic group's concerns over traffic and other impacts are holding up a developer’s request for $7.5 million in Suffolk County tax breaks for a proposed 180-unit 55-and-over apartment project in the hamlet.

Developer Jim Tsunis is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Cleary School in Nesconset with members of the We Are Nesconset group, said the group’s president, James Bouklas. Board members of the county’s Industrial Development Agency suggested the meeting.

A message from Jan Singer:

I may have lost an election to the self described most conservative member of the legislature, but he has not vanquished my spirit. I need to rest up a little, but I'm in this battle as long as people go hungry, children are separated and put in cages at our border, women are paid less for the same job, coal ash gets dumped in our streams and rivers, unions are stripped of the power to protect workers, people don't have access to affordable health care, women can't control their own bodies, people pretend racism doesn't exist...
