In its final scheduled meeting of 2013, the Oyster Bay Town Board set two dates for public hearings in January and February involving a major Plainview development and a new Starbucks on Sunrise Highway.

The board agreed 7-0 to hold a hearing on Feb. 4 on the application of Plainview Properties and Beechwood for the zoning change. That plan would allow the developers to build a large new housing development on the southwest corner of Old Country Road and Round Swamp Road in Plainview.

The area has been known as the "Wang Property," owned by Islanders' owner Charles Wang. It was once the home to the Nassau County Sanitarium.

The public hearing, as well as the board meeting, was moved to Mattlin Middle School at 7 p.m. Feb. 4. A previous public hearing on this development was slated, then cancelled, after a public outcry in April.

Additional information about Country Pointe, the DEIS, and updates on the hearing and applications can be found at their website at countrypointeplainview.com

The second public hearing is set for Jan. 21 in Oyster Bay to consider a propsal to build a Starbucks at 4440 Sunrise Highway in Massapequa. The developers, who call themselves the 4440 Sunrise Property Corp., plan the cafe and drive-through service on the property.

Public hearings are open to the public and offered to provide comment from residents and interested parties.
