The Town of Oyster Bay has unveiled a new initiative designed to be more environmentally friendly.
Town officials point to the new compressed natural gas fueling station at the Department of Public Works in Syosset. Officials say it will cut the town's petroleum usage by about 264,000 a year and reduce greenhouse gases by 27 percent.
But Oyster Bay is a big place, stretching from Long Island Sound to the Ocean with Plainview in the middle. Are there environmental projects that need to be addressed by the town that have fallen through the cracks?
Are some of the issues more down to earth, like ground water runnoff and park clean-up and preservation?
How strongly do you feel about the local environment from a Plainview and Oyster Bay resident's perspective?
