Lomonte said one of the biggest issues facing the city is overdevelopment and proposals such as large tax breaks for developers submitted to the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency. He said he is concerned about developments on the Superblock and more overdevelopment of surrounding properties near the beach. He said development should be controlled with limits on height and density. He said he's concerned about limits to the Lloyd Aquifer and not building across all open space. Lomonte said he wants to control taxes and keep rates at their current level for residents and to hold government agencies accountable.
