On Thursday, we asked Syosset Patch Facebook readers to tell us what they want to see happen in Syosset in 2014.

Here are their wishes for the coming year: 
  • More bike-friendly lanes
  • Better streets and sidewalks
  • Better infrastructure
  • Better streets. Especially in south grove neighborhood and by the elementary school.
  • Fix up our beautiful town. Fix curbs and sidewalks. Get rid of the wires hanging by crosswalk by Cardinali's. Westbury and Huntington have lovely towns…why can't we?
What's on your 2014 wishlist for Syosset? Post in the Comment box below.

How about fixing all the sidewalks on S. Oyster Bay Road between Hicks Ave. and the Long Island Expressway. People might be able to walk to the library and alleviate the parking situation there. Also, perhaps that poor boy who was killed there might have been saved.

Fix up the town. They fixed south of the tracks but not the actual town. How about new lights, benches fix curbs sidewalks. Fix the streets in the flower and woodbury way sections. List goes on for days!

Have LIRR add some kind of electronic warning or notice of train in the station to the traffic lights north and south of station so cars who are not in view of crossing will know why there is a traffic tie up. Also, can library put a book drop box somewhere in the north end of town to save driving down to LIE area just to return books? There used to be one at the rear of the bank on Jackson Ave. (Hempstead Bank - later B of America) but it was taken away when bank name changed. We need one in the north end of town. Please.

How about moving the train station to the Robins lane RR Crossing. It would solve every traffic problem this town has plus provide even more parking.

How about beautifying the town of Syosset which would include brick sidewalks, flowerpots, and benches. When you go into the town of Huntington they have these and it feels much more inviting. Also, fix a lot of the roads.

Train station parking capaicity needs to be increased to keep pace with the historical increase in homes and automobiles in Syosset and surrounding communities. It ain't 1969 anymore.

The current LIRR station location affords hundreds of people to walk to the station. Moving it to Robins Ln/Landia site will force people like me into their cars and will create more congestion throughout the area.

I know they aren't the most like thing but a traffic circle at the Underhill and Jackson intersection would help the traffic flow at the train tracks and safety of pedestrians. Also, an underground pedestrian walkway at the train tracks on the station house/platform side. Pedestrians would be able to cross underneath with a train in the station.

Take the proper environmental and safety procedures when demolishing the small houses in the neighborhood that contain asbestos. The contractors and town refuse to protect the health of the community and either play dumb or pass the blame when they are confronted.

We need a left turning lane going north To south.before the tracks .just reduce the sidewalk on the west side of Jackson in front of the bank .this would allow for a south bound lane and a left turning lane into the train station.
