Planning Board Says Eatery Lacks Downtown Flavor
The Glen Cove Planning Board voted to deny a special use permit and site plan application for a proposed Jumbo Buffet restaurant at 37-39 Glen Street, the former Hilliard's clothing store. The proposed restaurant was to accommodate 180 patrons while serving Asian and other ethnic cuisine buffet style. During a public hearing on this particular application, the notice of which was mailed to 20 property owners located within a 200 foot radius of the proposed restaurant and included the city of Glen Cove, no opposition to the plan was voiced. In fact, hardly anyone attended the hearing, implying tacit approval by the surrounding businesses in downtown Glen Cove. Usually, when there is great concern with a proposed use of a property, the opposition comes out in numbers.
