The Hempstead Village Planning Board will not hear an application Monday on a proposed waste transfer station because the developer has asked to postpone the project.

Village officials said the proposal from Hempstead and Brooklyn-based New York Sand and Stone Inc. was postponed until the Sept. 21 planning board meeting.

The developers under Fildon LLC and Don Cristi LLC have requested to build a 15,020-square-foot construction debris and environmental waste transfer center on a decontaminated brownfield site at Sewell and Mirschell streets.

It is the second time the application has been delayed this year. The planning board requested a traffic study in March. Village officials said developers plan to go before the traffic safety board before it returns to the planning board in September.

Developers are asking to build on an industrial-zoned site, across the street from a subdivision of homes. Developers say the site will have pickup of waste materials every 24 hours. The building plans also include ventilation systems to contain dust and odors.

If board members approve the project, it would have to be approved by the state Department of Environmental Conservation before it is built.
