The newly-formed Concerned Citizens of Hampton Bays has taken the next step toward a goal of gaining more members — they have launched a website.
Up and running for about a week, the new site, said Michael Dunn, president of the group, is aimed at recruitment and keeping the community informed.
"We want the community to be aware of our achievements and our goals," said Dunn, whose organization also has a Facebook page.
To date, Dunn says his group has already garnered 300 members with checks to help support the mission arriving in the mail daily.
"The feedback in my age group, middle age with kids, has been very positive. We are going strong," said Dunn.
The group launched late last year after hearing news of a homeless shelter opening in Hampton Bays, but officially hit the ground running last month, holding an open house meeting with some 260 community members in attendance.
The group, said Dunn, has a main objective to clean-up the community, especially when it comes to single family homes being used as multi-family dwellings, as well as the use of motels as living quarters.
The group intends to hold regular meetings and is looking to ramp up after the Hampton Bays San Gennero Festival, which is scheduled for Columbus Day weekend. During the festival, the citizens group will have a booth set up to sign up new members.
