Town Board to Weigh Legal Action Against Kings Park Biz

Town board members will vote on enforcement action, public hearing on Commack zoning change on Thursday night.

Smithtown officials will vote Thursday night on whether to take legal action to prevent a Kings Park pre-cast concrete business from operating after denying an application to legalize its  business. 

Town Board is scheduled to vote on bringing KPE II of Kings Park to New York State Supreme Court to restrain it and other related businesses from carrying out industrial business practices against the town code. The Town Board meeting is 7 p.m Thursday at the Eugene Cannataro Senior Citizen Center 

Smithtown's Board of Zoning Appeals denied KPE II's application for a certificate of existing use to legalize 13 industrial uses on Feb. 12. Some of the industrialpractices it sought to legalize include: pre-cast concrete and cesspool fabrication, concrete manufacturing, concrete aggregate processing, concrete recycling and rock crushing. 

Members of the Old Northport Road Lawrence Road Task Force are fearful Councilman Bob Creighton's campaign donations from Farrell Fritz, the law firm representing KPE II, may influence Thursday night's vote. Creighton said he plans to abstain. 

Town Board will also host a public hearing on a change of zoning for Tim Yin, owner property on the southeast corner of Jericho Turnpike and Walter Court from residential to Neighborhood Business.
