Citizens for a Better Nassau County
Nassau County is at a crossroads. We are blessed with abundant, unparalleled natural beauty and numerous locational advantages. Yet, as a community, we have difficulty in effectively planning needed changes and challenges of population growth.
In reality, we are facing the following:
- In 2000, Nassau County’s population was approximately 58,000 residents. Now, our population has soared to about 83,000, resulting in a 43-percent increase in just 18 years, stretching county resources to threatening levels.
- Of the county’s total working population, more than 70 percent leave the county daily for work elsewhere, resulting in an enormous loss of tax income from a lack of local, well-paying jobs that help to offset increased infrastructure and service costs.
