Parcel of Land in Miller Place Among Water Authority Surplus Holdings

Property on Harrison Avenue is up for sale by the Suffolk County Water Authority.

The Suffolk County Water Authority has identified hundreds of acres of land not needed for future water needs, and a parcel of land on Harrison Avenue in Miller Place is one of six properties now up for sale.

The SCWA recently sold the first property, one-acre residential lot formerly used as an observation well site in Lake Ronkonkoma. The lot sold for $241,000 on March 28.

The land in Miller Place is the smallest of the properties, a .8-acre parcel bordering Harrison, 15th Street and Tyler Avenue. The six properties total approximately 34 acres and are expected to bring in more than $5 million in revenues. Next week, the Authority will put on the market two surplus buildings, one in Great River and another in Southold.

“This has been a long and worthwhile process for the Authority,” said Chief Executive Officer Jeff Szabo. “A full property inventory and analysis had not been previously conducted. We are seeing the first benefits of that review with the sale of the Ronkonkoma parcel.”  

Additional information about the properties for sale can be attained by calling Maria Trupia at 631-563-0270.

Thanks for the advice- information. I received the bid via email. I do not know if it went out to the public yet. It is $1k to place a bid and they are due by May 4th. I emailed asking if they can hold the bid for the property since I do not think the neighborhood would have a shot purchasing otherwise.. but with the deadline so close- I think we might have missed the boat. We can try raising the money and bidding still?

The water Authority responded and stated that they would not hold the bid- it went public. If the neiborhood bids- I am sure we will lose before we start.
