Huntington Station Overlay District Expanding
On December 10, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. there will be a public hearing to change the zoning of a parcel in Huntington Station from C-6 General Business to the less restrictive C-6 Huntington Station Overlay district.
The town board is considering a zoning change for a parking lot in Huntington Station located on the south side of Railroad Street, east of Lowndes Avenue, next to the Community First Aid Squad.
Renaissance Downtowns has examined the potential redevelopment of underutilized government-owned properties located in areas immediately surrounding the Huntington train station. They have determined that the split zoning of this parking lot may hinder the potential redevelopment of that parcel.
The eastern portion of the parking lot is owned by New York State and the western portion is owned by the Huntington Station Renewal Agency. Both of these parcels are already zoned C-6 Huntington Station Overlay District.
We are in the process of trying to obtain an official map of the Huntington Station Overlay District. Previous FOIL attempts have been unsuccessful and the map does not appear to be available online. Renaissance Downtowns did not have an official map available. We have submitted another request to the town planning department.
