Officials to vote on superfund site land use
A vote is being held in Port Jefferson Station Tuesday night on how to use the land at the Lawrence Aviation superfund site.
The spot was declared a superfund site seven years ago.
A moratorium is set to expire in January on the plot of land that was once the Lawrence Aviation site. The site contains asbestos and is undergoing a $25 million cleanup.
A land-use plan is now on the table that would rezone the site for some residential and commercial use.
Brookhaven Town Supervisor Edward Romaine believes the land should be left alone.
"I don't think the land should be developed. There's a path forward other than that. I want to take that path. I want the land to heal itself," said Romaine.
Town officials will be meeting to discuss the site at 6:30 p.m. A vote is expected later tonight.
