Construction vehicle begins demolition on property as workers spray debris with hose.

October 13th, 2021 Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter joined with Town officials Tuesday morning, for the demolition of a blighted property in the Bay Shore community, following a unanimous resolution passed by the Town Board to raze the vacant home in early January of this year.

The property, located at 41 West Lane, Bay Shore, had been the source of many complaints from neighbors since 2018, and was deemed “unsafe, dangerous, unsound and hazardous as created by fire, disrepair, neglect and/or structural failure,” by the Town of Islip Fire Marshal on November 17th, 2020.

“Not only do these nuisance properties bring home values down, they are hazardous, and oftentimes attract less than appropriate behavior and very often illegal activities,” said Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “We are sensitive to the safety concerns of our residents, and will continue to do our best to rid neighborhoods of these kinds of nuisances and have them demolished as fast as legally possible.”

Joining Supervisor Carpenter were Town of Islip Councilman John C. Cochrane, Jr., and Islip Public Safety Commissioner Anthony Prudenti.

“Vacant homes left to disrepair are unsafe and leave a blight on neighboring areas,” said Councilman John C. Cochrane, Jr. “The entire Islip Town Board remains committed to ensuring that all residents in the Town enjoy a quality of life, and we will continue to push for the removal of such neglected and dangerous homes in our neighborhoods,” the Councilman added.

Islip Public Safety Commissioner Anthony Prudenti, whose office was instrumental in securing the unsafe property said, “These demolitions are typically an arduous process and we are glad to move forward with the removal of this blighted home in as timely manner as possible. We are grateful to Supervisor Carpenter and the entire Town Board for their support in seeing this hazardous property removed from the community.”

The home was demolished by Panzner Demolition & Abatement Corp on Tuesday, October 12th, 2021.
