Glen Cove City Court prohibits 4 Park Place Corp. from continuing operation

After several weeks of proceedings, the City of Glen Cove’s request for a restraining order against 4 Park Place Corporation, owned by John Doxey, was approved by the Honorable Richard J. McCord, Glen Cove City Court judge, on Friday, July 13. The court’s order prohibits the corporation from continuing its scrap metal processing and junkyard operation adjacent to the city’s waterfront, and from conducting any further activities at the property in violation of the city’s zoning ordinance.

“This order protects the city’s sensitive waterfront, and upholds the integrity of our zoning laws. Judge McCord’s decision will ensure that 4 Park Place Corporation and Mr. Doxey shall not be able to continue demolishing commercial vehicles loaded with hydraulic fluid and motor oil adjacent to Glen Cove Creek, and that this property shall only be used in a manner that does not violate the city’s zoning laws, does not threaten the environment, and only for such activities that are permitted and lawful,” said Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi.
