Mineola villagers try to halt apartment complex

Community members in Mineola are banding together in a bid to stop a proposed downtown apartment complex.



At a packed village board meeting this week, about 100 residents complained their village is becoming urbanized. The residents are opposed to a proposed nine-story, 296-unit apartment complex. They list traffic, overcrowded schools and sewer capacity among their concerns.



Mayor Scott Strauss says the development is not a done deal.



"We have had two hearings so far, and we are having a third because we want to hear what the residents have to say," says Strauss. "We would like to at least be informed so we can't say 'would've, should've, could've.'"



News 12 Long Island's calls to the developer were not returned. Another public hearing is scheduled for Feb.11 at Village Hall.
