A controversial Plainview development plan on the sprawling Wang property is slated for a public hearing later this month.
The Oyster Bay Town Board will conduct the zoning hearing to weigh the potential development of 143 acres of property off Old Country and Round Swamp roads, the site of the former Plainview Sanitarium.
The town's hearing, set for 7 p.m. at the Mattlin Middle School on Monday April 29, is open to the public. Various proposals for the site, once owned by Nassau County and used as an office complex, have met stiff resistance in Plainview.
The petition now under consideration by the town comes from a group called Plainview Properties, SPE, LLC and Beechwood POB LLC, the developers for property owner Charles Wang.
The zoning changes would allow the developers to build a multi-family residences for families and seniors as well as certain business uses. The plan calls for 890 housing units and 114,330 square-feet of commercial space. Town officials said about 44 acres of land would be dedicated to the Town of Oyster Bay for park and recreation use.
