The Brookhaven Town Board is scheduled to hold a public hearing Tuesday on the Long Island Music Hall of Fame’s application to move to a permanent home in Port Jefferson.

The Hall of Fame, currently homeless, plans to set up shop at the landmarked First National Bank building, formerly the town tax receiver’s office, on Main Street in Port Jefferson.

At the board meeting at Town Hall in Farmingville, the town will hear comments from the public on the music hall’s application for a license to operate as a museum and education center in the bank building.

The hall of fame is a nonprofit organization that is “dedicated to the idea that Long Island’s musical heritage is an important resource to be celebrated and preserved for future generations,” according to its website. The organization defines Long Island geographically as Kings, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
