It seems as though the NIMBYs of Babylon recently won out after offering vocal opposition to a mixed-use property that would’ve added 70 apartments to the area, Newsday reported. “After receiving many thoughtful presentations and emails, the overwhelming majority of which were in opposition, the Town Board and I have agreed to not present the mixed-use permit proposal for a vote at a future meeting,” Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer said in a Facebook post. Opponents largely argued that the town did not need or want increased density. [Newsday]
