Preserve Elwood Now, a newly-formed group associated with the Greater Huntington Civic Group, will hold a meeting Thursday at 7 p.m. at VFW Hall, Post #1469 to discuss the next steps in an effort to prevent the down zoning of the Oak Tree Dairy property on Elwood Road.
The proposed 'Seasons at Elwood' development would place over 450 condos, with age-restricted ownership of 55+, on the 37-acre parcel. The land, which is currently zoned R-40 residential but has a variance for commercial use, would require a zone change to R-RM. The zone change application is currently under consideration with the Town Planning Board.
In March, a group of concerned residents began circulating a petition to submit to the town board. They have now joined with the Huntington Civic Group, the group behind opposition to the Huntington Avalon Bay housing development.
Preserve Elwood Now is encouraging residents to voice their opposition to the project at the Dec. 18 Huntington Town Board meeting, sign a petition to be submitted to the Town, and contribute to the funding of an independent traffic study. More information about the group and their plan to oppose the condo project can be found here.
