Brookhaven Town Board to vote on Port Jefferson Station site

December 12, 2014 by  

Lawrence Aviation Industries closed its Port Jefferson Station operation in 2003, and the future of the site is now in the hands of the Brookhaven Town Board, which will vote on its future on Tuesday, December 16.

Currently, there is a moratorium on building at the site, which comprises 126 acres. That moratorium expires in January, even though no construction can be undertaken at the site until a federal cleanup is finished. That effort, which is estimated at about $27.3m, will probably not be finished until 2036.

The property is currently zoned as residential, but the proposed land use plan put forward by Brookhaven would change the zoning to light industrial. This would allow offices, factories, and storage facilities to operate there. The plan also backs the development of green energy uses like solar panel farms at the former Lawrence site.

Another proposal calls for foreclosing on the property’s tax liens, and preserving the area simply as open space, but issue with the site make this solution a problematic one.

Brookhaven Town officials could work with a brochure printing company to create a mailer for residents presenting the options and calling for input and community discussion. Through inviting public ideas, it is possible that they may be able to come to a decision through gauging opinion.
