Long Islander News covered the meeting in an article dated June 7th, entitled Creek Road Zone Change Pulled From Agenda, which also quoted me:

After several residents voiced opposition to it, a zone change proposal for Creek Road in Halesite was pulled from the agenda of Tuesday’s town board meeting.

...

The plan was also opposed by half a dozen residents, who spoke during the public portion of the meeting; several other speakers opposed what they said is general overdevelopment in Huntington.

Jim Leonick, of East Northport, said the town board should make a conscious effort to protect the Mill Dam wetlands, located across the street for the site of the proposed building.

“We already have toxicity and drainage problems there… Adding to the intensity of the use of that property by putting apartments there is only going to hurt,” Leonick said.

Later during the meeting, Supervisor Lupinacci pulled the resolution to downzone the property from the agenda, a win for those who believe Huntington needs to move in a new direction.
