Supervisor Rich Guardino and Councilman Joseph J. Ra have announced the Hempstead Town Board unanimous denial of applications submitted by two businesses in Franklin Square.
According to Supervisor Guardino, Wil Tech Systems, Inc. and Rosalie Polizio were denied their respective applications at an April 20 town board meeting.
Loy Latham, the sole officer and sole shareholder of Wil Tech Systems, appeared before the town bard on March 23 seeking a change of zoning from 'Residence C' district to 'Business' district, concurrent with an application for a Special Exception to operate a Public Garage. The applicant planned construction of a 4,000 square foot building to be utilized as a garage for the storage of antique automobiles and fire trucks on property located at 149 New Hyde Park Road in Franklin Square. In addition, Latham sought parking and building variances.
Polizio, who is the owner of property located at 1100-1102 Hempstead Turnpike, applied for a Special Exception (Public Garage) to maintain and legalize the use of automotive repairs and automotive body repairs, along with a spray paint booth and installation and repair of automotive alarms and locks, and permission to park in the frontyard setback areas. Representatives for Polizio came before the board on Jan. 14, 1999.
"The town board weighed all the information presented to them by the applicants, the views of concerned citizens, and the Nassau County Planning Commission's recommended denial of the application before rendering a decision," said Councilman Ra.
"Hempstead Town government is committed to preserving the quality of life enjoyed by all our residents," said Supervisor Guardino, "and will continue to listen carefully to their concerns. I want to thank all of those residents who took time out from their busy schedules to take part in our town board meetings."
