Four homes in the Town of Smithtown considered hazardous to locals and unlivable could soon be torn down.
The four homes are located at 30 Helen Avenue in Smithtown, 7 Hadley Drive in Smithtown, 77 Main Street in Kings Park and 81 Main Street in Kings Park. The Kings Park properties are commonly referred to as the Hightower Homes.
Smithtown officials will hold three public hearings during Tuesday's regular town board meeting, set for 2 p.m. at Town Hall on West Main Street. The hearings are being held to consider allowing the town to enter the properties "for the purpose of remediating and/or removing the structure."
The four homes were featured on the town's blighted properties list created by town councilmen Robert Creighton, Kevin Malloy and Edward Wehrheim in June 2011.
