ISLIP - ? Residents came out to Islip Town Hall last night for a public hearing on a development plan. At issue is a 136-acre parcel of open space in Holbrook known as ?The Pines.?

Serota Properties wants to build 200 housing units, a hotel and a movie theater in the space.

The property would be located at the northeast corner of Vets and Sunrise highways in Holbrook.

Opponents fear it will cause traffic nightmares and negatively impact local businesses.
