HUNTINGTON - Officials say plans for a controversial housing complex in Huntington are back on the table.

Avalon Bay Communities has resubmitted a proposal to build hundreds of apartments.

The developer's website says its original 490-unit plan has been scaled down to 379 units.

The Huntington Town Board rejected the original plans back in September.

Many residents opposed to the plan say they worried the proposed project near the train station was too big. Others say they worried school taxes would skyrocket if too many children moved into the complex.

Town Planning Director Anthony Aloisio says a new board vote is still months away.
