Board of Directors

 

-  Right Time / Right Community / Right Team

Over the last 6 months, as founders and Hauppauge residents we have done considerable work and research in the community park space. Our research gives us confidence that together, with you, our commitment to acquire, develop, and maintain Hauppauge residential parks will be realized. We believe our initiative is exactly what our community needs to bring us, as neighbors, together in a lasting safe and fun environment. Join us on the journey.
