its April 10 meeting, the Huntington Town Board changed the date and moved the
public hearings on Villadom to Elwood Middle School, designated the Teich House
as an Historic Landmark, approved measures to revitalize Huntington Station,
among other Town business.
Chad A. Lupinacci sponsored a resolution to move the public hearings on
Villadom to Elwood Middle School, making it easier for residents neighboring
the proposed development to attend. This change was made to accommodate the
high interest in the Villadom public hearings, fulfilling Supervisor
Lupinacci’s promise to bring some town board meetings out of Town Hall to
locations within the community. The Town Board voted to move the May 15 Town
Board Meeting to May 17 at 7:00 PM at Elwood Middle School, a larger venue in
the heart of the Elwood community, located at 478 Elwood Road in Elwood.
the start, one of the goals of my administration has been to provide an
open-door type of government that listens to our residents when making
decisions that have a tangible impact on their lives. The Villadom hearings have
generated a lot of interest and feedback from both sides and in an effort to
provide a convenient venue for residents who stand to be impacted the most by
the proposed project, we are bringing the Town Board Meeting on the road to the
Elwood community,” said Supervisor Lupinacci.
a move to return real property to the tax rolls and to further economic
development in Huntington Station, the Town Board approved a transfer of
property from the Town to Renaissance Downtowns for redevelopment, allowing the

census tracts in Huntington Station as an Opportunity Zone, as established in

Town Board designated the Teich House as an Historic Landmark. The Max and
Rosie Teich Homestead, named after the family that lived in the house, raised
their family there and ran a dairy on the site. Dr. Samuel Teich, Max and
Rosie’s son, was a legendary community physician who delivered tens of
thousands of babies and cared for thousands of patients over a half-century of
practicing medicine in Huntington Station from 1935 to 1985.
Town Board extended the review time to consider the special use permit
application submitted by Kids Plus for the property at 145 Cuba Hill Road,
Greenlawn, by 90 days to July 14, 2018. The Kids Plus application was the first
submitted under the Town’s new congregate care regulations, which requires
privately-owned special needs housing to fit the character of the single-family
home neighborhoods in which they plan to be developed. Plans were recently
submitted by the developer showing a smaller building and smaller retaining
walls after neighbors raised concerns about the size of the project.

resolve an issue of minor encroachments onto Town property known as “Mill
