North Bellmore Civic Association president Reinaldo Nunez recently announced that there will be an upcoming public hearing regarding the proposed North Shore Farms Supermarket held by the Town of Hempstead on Jan. 16.
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.
