UPDATE: Patchogue’s village trustees are expected backed off a much-anticipated chance to approve a $100-million downtown development in favor of gathering more public comment on the long-awaited project.
The board, which was expected to vote on a site plan of the development at tonight's board meeting, instead set a new hearing.
The Village of Patchogue board of trustees will meet tonight to vote on the fate of a $100-million development plan for the historic Four Corners area of the village.
The project calls for 17,000 square feet of office space, 45,000 square feet of retail space and 291 rental apartments at the former Sweezey's property and its adjacent sites in the heart of downtown. A previous proposal included a hotel, but developer Tritec Real Estate Co. couldn’t attract an operator.
The board will vote on the changes in the site plan at its meeting tonight.
If approved, construction could begin this year.
