Like most communities on Long Island, Deer Park and North Babylon each have great things to offer residents, but also areas in need of improvement.

Local schools continue to provide students a solid education, but issues with trash and other items on some fields where youngsters play sports are a concern to parents in some neighborhoods. There are success stories throughout the business districts of both communities, but vacancies still exist and the need to attract new business continues.

It's times like these that people get to thinking about the home they love so much, coming up with their own ideas, be them wild stretches of the imagination or practical fixes that are altogether doable, to keep Deer Park and North Babylon great into the foreseeable future.

The best way to get a better feel of what to do would be to ask the students of the schools. Have them do artwork,projects, essays, etc.. things we as a community need to get done..Afterall it is for them....ask them what they want....

I would love to see some enforcement of code around the area. I am really tired of people parking commercial vehicles, trucks, etc. on their property as well as parking in front yards. Those of us who spend the time and money to keep up our properties do not like to see others trash it. Also a crack down on illegal apartments would be nice. Way to many cars for single family homes. I also really like the village idea!

right next to the train tracks?

A bike path/sidewalk is necessary on Long Island Ave from Commack Rd to the industrial park. There is no place for a pedestrian to walk/bike down the road to the train station and there is a blind curve.
