@Frank, the sign just recently went up. I guess it went up the day the letter went out to all local residents...received mine on Friday. It's our East Meadow and we should all be angry and do something about it. I just signed up for The Patch, so, I didn't see your post last week. I'm going to the meeting tonight,and, I wrote the board of appeals,everyone should do their part. If we want to see our town turn into Queens, do nothing. However, if you still care about your little piece of suburbia, get up and say you're not going to sit there and watch your neighborhood turn into a sewer. I wrote the new editor on Friday and again yesterday and still no local story about this....

@Frank & Linda. Thank you for making it easy to be heard. I have posted a comment and linked this to my FB page and business website. I appreciate the effort everyone makes to keep the 5 boroughs out of our area.

I went to the community meeting tonight, sat in front row, our neighbors showered the proposed buyer, realtor and counsel with their outrage. After signing petitions, voicing our true concerns, we were told at end of meeting that the public hearing to be held on Wednesday, October 24, 2012, will be postponed till a later date. The owner of 333 All Seasons Realty Corp., can see this little community will not back down. We let him and his cronies know, we do not want a taxi stand in our neighborhood and will fight this tooth and nail. I want to thank Norma Gonsaleves for helping organize the meeting at the NUMC tonight. I want to thank everyone who attended this meeting, It was so nice to see our neighbors band together, makes me really know what we are fighting for. Also, met the very pleasant, Ms. De Souza, our new East Meadow patch editor. I look forward to your story about this. Well, it's not over, till it's over, so stay tuned..and remember neighbors, it's your East Meadow! Oh,one more thing, if you haven't already done so, write the town of appeals voicing your concern about this matter..Thanks! Linda G.
