(excerpt from response by Office of the Suffolk County Executive, Steve Levy)

Dear Ms. Hansen:

Thank you for contacting my office to share your suggestions for Suffolk County.

... Your suggestion that a zoo be placed on the Yaphank property certainly coincides with my goal of placing a community- oriented facility in the area.

If you know of a nonprofit agency that would like to operate such a facility, please have them forward a proposal to my office for review.

As I said during my State of the County Address, everything is on the table, there is nothing we won’t consider.

Please do not hesitate to contact my office if I may be of assistance in the future.


Steve Levy

County Executive
