For months, residents of Roslyn Heights have lobbied to prevent the destruction of a 112-year old house on 73 Warner Ave., one that they claim is on property that is only zoned for residential purposes.
Their persistence has paid off. According to Warner Avenue resident, Dolores Augustine, the developer, JDN Properties of Mineola has withdrawn all parts of their variance request related to the address of the old house. JDN represented the nearby Porsche dealership, which sought to construct commercial uses on the property, including a new parking lot. Once they withdrew their original application, JDN only requested a permit to continue to use the lot on the southeastern side of Warner Avenue as an automobile storage lot. That permit, Augustine claimed, had expired in the 1960s. The Town of North Hempstead Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) has granted Porsche a two-year extension, Augustine said, one that lasts until May 2015.
