Old Village Enacts Moratorium on East Shore Road
The ongoing legal conflict about the rezoning of land abutting the Manhasset Bay side of East Shore Road from industrial to a waterfront development district by the Village of Great Neck took another twist Tuesday night, Feb. 7. In light of the recent ruling against the village in the suit brought by Walbaum, Inc. (see GN Record, Jan. 27, 2006, "Nassau Supreme Court Rules Against Old Village," Page 1.), the mayor and trustees of the village voted unanimously to adopt legislation establishing a temporary moratorium on all building and other construction in the subject area to allow the board time to reconsider the "most beneficial zoning for that property for the village's future development." The board might decide to re-open the environmental review process (SEQRA), but also reserves the right to appeal the decision of the court.
