HUNTINGTON STATION - Tensions flared as residents weighed in on a revised housing plan tonight at Huntington Town Hall.

Avalon Bay Development and residents made their case for and against the housing project, which would bring 379 units to 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.

Developers say the newest proposal would be a $100 million investment in the community and could create more than 320 construction jobs. They did not say if the positions would be local.

Neighbors say they are concerned about the extra burden it would put on roads and schools in the area.
