You are invited to help town officials do our due diligence in reviewing the proposal by MSG to establish a privately owned helicopter landing area at the MSG training facility in Greenburgh. Tomorrow – Friday – we will meet at 10:30 AMat Carvel’s, on 9A (near Sam’s Club) to observe the helicopter flying towards the MSG training facility. After we meet we will walk to the Beaver Hill residential neighborhood.  This fly over will provide members of the community with an opportunity to get an understanding of the noise impacts a helicopter will have on the neighborhood if the approvals are granted. MSG claims that there will not be any negative quality of life impacts. Let’s confirm that for ourselves before any decision is made.

If you are interested in participating and e mail me your cell phone – I’ll advise you if we are running a few minutes late.
