Taking Their Show on the Road
Although AvalonBay Communities has not submitted a new application for their property on Pine Hollow Road, they are on the Internet with a new plan. Their website offers a plan for an apartment complex half the size of the original 300-unit proposal that was rejected by the Town of Oyster Bay. At the Tuesday, Jan. 9, Village of Muttontown board meeting representatives of the Coalition to Stop Avalon Bay addressed Mayor Julianne Beckerman and the board to inform them of what the new AvalonBay proposal involves. Muttontown supported the Coalition when former Mayor Richard Murcott was in office.
