The Huntington Town Board approved the Huntington Station Gateway Plan, the environmental impact document covering three sites under consideration for redevelopment by the master developer for Huntington Station.

Approval of the plan allows Plainview-based Renaissance Downtowns to take the next steps on each of the proposals, which could include site plan approval.

The three sites are a hotel and office building across the street from the train station, at the intersection of New York Avenue and Railroad Street; a mixed-use building with apartments and retail businesses behind Gateway Plaza at New York Avenue and Olive Street; and artists' residences and display space in part of what is now a parking lot at New York Avenue and Church Street.

All of the sites are within walking distance of the Huntington Long Island Rail Road station and in close proximity to each other, allowing for a combined review of the potential environmental impact of the projects.

The board voted 5-0 to adopt the plan at its Sept. 16 meeting.
