SYOSSET - A long-delayed plan to construct a 750,000 square-foot mall in Syosset is once again in the works, and, like many times before, Syosset residents are pushing back. The 18-year-old project has previously been stalled by traffic and housing concerns put forth by local civic groups. The proposed site is 39 acres at the corner of the Long Island Expressway service road and Robbins Lane. The mall has mostly been a dead issue since 2009, when an appeals court upheld the Town of Oyster Bay's rejection to the proposal. The town had tossed the plan over environmental concerns. Michigan-based Taubman Properties pitched the plan again today to the Long Island Regional Planning Council in Rockville Centre. The development group says the mall would bring thousands of jobs to the area, plus $50 million in taxes. Syosset community groups, however, argue that it will bring more congestion to local roads. Some residents take issue with the vastness of the project, while others say they feel Long Island has enough shopping centers.Opponents delight in roadblock for Syosset mall planResidents pack Oyster Bay Town Hall to protest mall constructionUnion favors Syosset mall, criticizes Venditto's proposal
