the South Yaphank Civic Association  was founded by Johan McConnell in 2004 and has, in a relatively short period of time, addressed much of the area's concerns and has established itself as a professional, articulate and factual organization earning the respect and admiration of many in local and county government as well as of other civic and community organizations.

OUR mission  is to provide residents of Yaphank and Brookhaven hamlets with a forum to address issues of concern to our community. 
We advocate for residents’ input in all decisions affecting our community, to ensure the safety of our neighborhood, to enhance area property values as well as to encourage positive and strategic development of the area where appropriate and beneficial.

Our goal is to help to promote and preserve the historic community of Yaphank.
We work to
provide timely communication of important information and facts between community members, other civic organizations or agencies and the elected and appointed decision makers of Brookhaven Township and Suffolk County.

Shooting Range Loses AGAIN
In Court!

But Legal Farce Continues

 
Hunter Sports, the Licensee of the Shooting Range, lost yet another appeal - this time in the Appellate Term - which upheld previous court rulings affirming that the Town of Brookhaven has the right to enforce its noise law and that the shooting range is operating in violation of that law.
But despite having lost ALL of the major decisions in this now ten-year legal  farce, the Licensee is planning yet another appeal as he continues to ignore the obvious writing on the wall and instead chooses to force the County (and thus "we the taxpayers") to waste even more tax dollars "defending" his illegal operation.

Legislator Browning appeals to County Executive and Legislators NOT to renew Shooting Range contract.
 
Legislator Browning writes letter to Steve Bellone and the members of the Suffolk County Legislature urging them to consider non-renewal of the Licensee's contract citing, "...serious impacts on the surrounding community’s quality of life, the ongoing costs of litigation being incurred by Suffolk County taxpayers and the costs of any future violations if the court continues to rule in favor of the Town of Brookhaven..."
