The new business would be located at the intersection of Pea Pond Road and Jerusalem Avenue.

Some locals are opposed to the opening of the market, citing quality-of-life issues, and Nunez said this upcoming hearing, which will be held at the Board of Zoning Appeals at 1 Washington St. in Hempstead, will require a community effort to make their voices heard.

“You have to get all of your neighbors to come,” Nunez said. “If we don’t show up in a large group, we’re not going to get what we want.”

The attorney for the developer proposing to build a new supermarket and electrical contractor will be the guest speakers at the North Bellmore Civic Association meeting Monday night, which will be held at the North Bellmore Public Library at 7 p.m.

Rich - Where do you live? How about you offering your backyard for North Shore Farms. Let's put a supermarket in your backyard and you'd be crying like a little baby. When I purchased my home that building was a Rite Aid and never had the volume of traffic that North Shore Farm will produce. Neighbors visited the other locations that North Shore Farms has and you couldn't get in or out of the parking lots on the weekend. RALPH- We wouldn't have a problem of another type of business occupying that property. North Shore Farms hours of operation will be 6 am to 10 pm. With 10 deliveries a day. LIke I said to Rich, put it in your backyard and see how you'd like the traffic, lack of privacy, safety concerns, smells, rats and not to mention the value of your house going down the tubes.

I live within walking distance Angela. Im RIGHT THERE. You bought your home when it was a drug store, not when it was A/P, so I suppose you get a pass. Also, to be fair, the hours they were talking of being open AND the fact that its no longer zoned to be a supermarket has me reconsidering my position. But that aside, stop with the dramatics that this will be the end of the universe if it did happen. Drug store, supermarket, nuclear missle sight. It doesnt matter. You bought a home backing up a huge commercial property and a school. You didnt consider privacy and safety concerns before now? You didnt consider the tenant of that building would ever change? You didnt do your homework, thats now NOT our fault.

When are decisions being passed? If they squashed Western Beef, how's this happening then? Rite Aid was a stupid move as they were down the street and now across the street since purchasing Genovese. Anything they put there will cause more traffic that's the bottom line. I agree that I wouldn't want smelly food in my area either, but then again, I didn't purchase near a commercial area. I do have a lot of traffic via my elementary school and Mepham HS, esp when the 'teens' get their licenses and they are 'lead foots' ;) I wish everyone luck in this... I don't know what to say .. I hope it all works out for you.

Rich- I am not being dramatic at all. I lived by a school prior to this and enjoy being near a school, hearing the children laugh and play is the greatest Being by the school and the area around was why I purchased my home. The school isn't the issue here. The traffic here has gotten worse and worse. People use Jerusalem Avenue as a service road to the Southern State. More children and parents and cars are in the area due to Gunther closing . When I moved in this area it was not this bad at all. The law is the law and they don't belong there. The safety of my child and other children in the neighborhood concerns me the most. GMS- That is our question too. We were told that we would not have to deal with this situation ever again with the zoning laws. Anything will increase traffic but not to this extent. Take a ride to any of there other stores on the weekend. It is crazy busy.

Best of luck Angela.. I'm sure lots of children in the area due to Gunther. The building does look better since it's been paved and cleaned up, weeds, etc... The owner must be a piece of garbage though :D :D :D I know that there is a farmstand in Plainview that's crazy parking day in and day out.. it's aggrevating, I went once and never again
