What Would You Improve in Sachem in 2013?

If you could make a New Year's resolution for the Sachem community, what would it be?

More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.

As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in the Sachem community to make it an even better place to live?

Would it be beautification programs along Hawkins Avenue or Portion Road? More ammenities at the local parks? A winter concert series?

What is on your Sachem wish list? What is one thing you would improve in 2013?

Tell us in the comment section below or blog about why you love living here!

I would ask that the town help to get some new businesses. We lost so many and Portiion Rd and Hawkins and Ronkonkokma Aves have many many empty stores.

I would ask all concerned to please begin the process of returning and restoring our adult community education department. It was one of the best on Long Island .It is sorely missed and its sudden demise was puzzling and unplanned. Thank you for any consideration,it is really needed.

You've had a post up before about changing the intersection and the road under the bridge of service road north and Holbrook road, I thought changes were going to be made after a lot of people wrote things to the article but I see nothing has been done. So I would again say that changes I would hope start to happen to make under the bridge safer and possibly even showing the mph sign too more on Holbrook road since everyone seems to be going over 40-45mph. Those are the changes I hope start to come about. Thanks :)

Stop paying Government employees for unused vacation or sick days. In the private sector vacations must be used within a reasonable period of time and cannot be accumulated. Sick days are for sick time. They are not additional paid vacation days.

Amen. Teachers offer little or no consessions to the buget process. No other employees work less than 175 days per year!

I also, would like to see the return of the adult education department. Cannot understand why it was abruptly cancelled. The students pay for the programs and they always had very good classes!
