Civic Group Presents Possible Land Use For Bavarian Inn

Nesconset-Sachem Civic Association joined by Suffolk Legislator Kennedy to discuss land possibilities.

Local leaders and interested parties were treated to a presentation tonight from the Nesconset-Sachem Civic Association and the Commerdinger Group that mapped out some ideas to join the parks surrounding Lake Ronkonkoma.

The presentation spelled out some of the current and future improvements being made to the historic Commerdinger house located in the W.S. Commerdinger Jr County Park. 

Transitioning to Suffolk County Leg. John M. Kennedy, the conversation centered on how best to use the land currently occupied by the shuttered Bavarian Inn. According to Kennedy, the owner and the lender for the property are $300,000 in arrears on back taxes and have missed the February 19 deadline to make good on payment. 

Kennedy said they have received a letter from the Bavarian camp stating their desire to pay the back debt, but the county intends on rejecting the application and taking control of the property.

Some of the ideas discussed at tonight's meeting at the Nesconset Public Library was:

  • Rebuilding the fishing pier destroyed by a storm
  • Instituting a kayac/canoeing station
  • Installing a band shell for outdoor classical music programs
  • Building a premenade or boardwalk along the shore of the lake.

The association adjourned the meeting by asking for the community's input on what they would like to see happen to the land. They also discussed placing a single group as a spearheading liason going forward.

Great idea! The boardwalk could include restaurants as well

I hope so that area needs a lot more than a boardwalk and restaurants...

Wonderful ideas! I'd love a boardwalk or fishing pier. Something family friendly for the neighborhood

The lake has such great possibilities! I think there should be a walking path around the whole lake! With rest areas bridge across the lake .. But it sounds like finally something is being done.

Excellent ideas and rowboats too.

I have thought about it for years. Possibilities for a 'family friendly' atmosphere are endless providing the planning is done with private not government investment
