Town Board to Hear Hotel's Plea to Build, Code Amendments at Meeting

The town board will advertise six public hearings at Tuesday's afternoon board meeting, all set for September.

The lone town board meeting for the Town of Smithtown set for August is set for Tuesday at 2 p.m. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect at town hall.

Multiple Public Hearings to be Advertised; One to Take Place Tuesday

Smithtown Long Island Hotel Properties is looking to build a hotel in Hauppauge, and the town board will announce two upcoming public hearings Tuesday that could make this happen.

Both of the hearings will be set for Sept. 15 at the Eugene A. Cannataro Senior Citizen Center and are for the town to grant special exceptions to build the hotel and to change a prior special exception that will decrease the size of the property where the hotel would be built from 10.46 acres to 7.05 acres. The proposed location of the hotel is on the north side of Vanderbilt Motor Parkway, 1,000 feet west of Wicks Road and Moreland Road.

The town board will also advertise four different public hearings for proposed town code amendments and local laws, all of which would take place Sept. 6.

  • Chapter 108 – Boat, Basin and Mooring Areas
  • Chapter 318 – Waterways
  • Chapter 322 – Placement of accessory buildings, structures and uses (relating specifically to paving)
  • Local Law #3-1981, Chapter 9 – Appearance Tickets as it relates to Authorized public servants

There is just one public hearing set for Tuesday – proposed amendments to the building construction portion of the town code regarding plumbing fixtures.

Walks, Parades and Events

The second annual run in memory of a Smithtown track and football coach is in its beginning phases, as the town board will hear a first reading for the American Cancer Society Coach Pat Harmon 5K Run/Walk. The town board will also hear second readings for the Nesconset Chamber of Commerce Nesconset Day and the Smithtown High School West Homecoming Parade.

Possible Road Sign Addition

The town board could decide an amendment to the Uniform Traffic Code Tuesday that would add stop signs to the north side and south sides of the road at the intersection of Fisher Road and Abbey Drive.
