The Town of Huntington plans to hold a public meeting Tuesday on redeveloping brownfields in Huntington Station. The Brownfield Opportunity Area meeting, hosted by the town’s Community Development Agency and the Economic Development Corporation, will be held at 7 p.m. in the Big H shopping center at 809 New York Ave., behind Famous Footwear.
The meeting will begin the second step of a process that began in 2009, when the town began to study and analyze brownfields in Huntington Station under grants totaling $340,000 it received in 2008 and 2011 from the state’s Brownfield Opportunity Area program. The study area covers 640 acres in Huntington Station around the Long Island Rail Road station, town spokesman A.J. Carter said.
