Snow and Red Tape Leads To Roof Collapse

Filed under: Around Town,Building & Development,Code Enforcement,News |

On Sunday, February 16, 2014, the roof collapsed at 156A Depot Road in Huntington Station. The site was formerly a family owned Poultry and Distribution business that closed 3 years ago. The site is currently rented to another company according to “Brian” whose family owns the property.
Brian stated, “There are plans and permits in place to update the property for the new lessee.” According to the family member, the owners have been trying to get moving on renovations to the property but could not get the approvals necessary to move forward. They claim this has been going on for three years. After three years of red tape, the property has collapsed under the weight this year’s excessive snow.

No one was in the building at the time of the collapse.

  1. Well I guess now the owner will have to revise his plans and start from the ground up or take the insurance money and run. Three (3) years to get approval to renovate, what a shame, you would think any improvement to that area the town would move fast to get it approved. Glad to read that no one got hurt.
