TSC representatives speak at Shoreham Civic Meeting

21 January 2009

Representatives from the Tesla Science Center (formerly known as Friends of Science East) met with the Shoreham Civic Organization at their monthly meeting to give an update on the status of the proposed Tesla Museum at Wardenclyffe. TSC President Jane Alcorn, assisted by Vice-president Gene Genova and Secretary Chris Wesselborg, explained the future goals of TSC in establishing the Tesla Museum in Shoreham, New York. Legislator Daniel Losquadro was in attendance expressing his support for the project, and outlined the role that the Suffolk County Legislature could play in acquiring the site. TSC's presentation included a description of the Shoreham site using large photographs and diagrams showing the actual buildings and Tesla's laboratory. Members of the civic association found the discussions very informative and asked numerous questions. Jane Alcorn explained that the cleanup of the contaminated site has been completed, and outlined the current understanding of how the Agfa Corporation might consider a disposition of the property. On behalf of the Shoreham Civic Organization, president Kevin Ward expressed their support for the establishment of the Tesla Museum. After the regular meeting, additional discussions continued with individual community residents as to how they could support this endeavor.
