HUNTINGTON STATION - Avalon Bay Development is getting ready to put forward a new proposal for a smaller affordable housing project in Huntington Station.

As News 12 Long Island has reported, the Town of Huntington rejected the original proposal for a 500-apartment complex that was to be built by the Huntington train station.

Neighbors were concerned about the extra burden on the roads and schools in the area.

Avalon Bay Development still needs to convince the town to re-zone the property. A hearing on the new housing project proposal will be held at Huntington Town Hall May 16.
