Hearings Held on Old Vanderbilt Motor Parkway Lots
On Wednesday Oct. 11, the Town of Hempstead Board of Zoning Appeals held a hearing regarding a proposal by Josato Inc., to build 20 homes on two plots of land formerly known as Motor Parkway. In addition to the homes, 16 of which would need variances from the Town, Josato also applied to the Nassau County Planning Commission for a variance to build two roads, known as Marigold and Topaz, which would not fall under the county's requirements with regard to street width. The variances they would need from the town are because Levittown has a special zoning law, known as the Levittown Planned Residence District (LPRD). Under this ordinance, the lots proposed by Josato are not deep enough for houses.

Michael James, Davey Grecsek and Dakota Bransfield were rotated freely in and out of various defensive positions and did an awesome job.
