AMITYVILLE - The Town of Babylon voted tonight to do an environmental impact study on redeveloping an Amityville mobile home park.

New Frontier, LLC is going to pay for a study on how a new apartment building is going to affect the area. The developer plans to take the park and put a 500-unit complex in its place.

Frontier Park residents arrived at the meeting to speak on behalf of the 370 families that may be forced to look for a new place to live.

Town officials say about 100 units of the apartment complex will be affordable housing and current residents will get the first crack at them.

No timetable has been set on when the public will have a chance to voice its opinion.
