To State Liquor Authority:
We demand that the New York State Liquor Authority deny the application for the liquor license and opening of a liquor store on 1560 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont, NY 11003, which is within 120 feet of the entrance of the Elmont Memorial Library. This is a residential area and we don’t want a liquor store near our homes and our beloved Library. It brings our property value down and brings unwanted traffic, security issues, excess noise, and trash. So many of the young children in our community use the Elmont Memorial Library and athletic field next to it on a daily basis.
We are against the opening of this liquor store and we would like our concerns to be heard by the State Liquor Authority. We are serious about our property values and our investment in the Elmont Memorial Library. We have come together and signed a petition in order to get results. We want their application to be denied in its entirety.
It is important that we do not allow this liquor store to be put in the midst of the Elmont community. A community that is already overwhelmed with (4) liquor stores in the vicinity. WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER ONE! It is a tragic situation when we put profit over the safety and the well-being of our children. Let's NOT ALLOW this to happen!!! Our children's lives and future are at stake. A new liquor store should not be allowed to open in Elmont, New York.
