The Nassau IDA voted on July 28 on the proposed development by Wayfarer LLC of the Superblock property located on the boardwalk between Riverside and Long Beach Boulevards, and rejected their request for a PILOT. From the outset the District monitored the progress of this proposal and provided comment to the IDA. At a public meeting on July 26th, the Board of Education rejected a proposal by Wayfarer LLC. The Board took several factors into consideration, including the short timeframe afforded us and concerns raised by the community and Board of Education members.

The Board will continue to be mindful of community and taxpayer concerns while promoting the educational mission of the District.
