About 200 people took to the streets to protest a proposed $80 million dollar shopping center coming to Elwood. They hoped to pressure the Huntington Town Board to kill the project, arguing that the project will pollute the water supply, exacerbate traffic woes and generally diminish their quality of life, Newsday reported. First proposed 2013, the project calls for an amendment to the town’s comprehensive plan, which would allow Great Neck-based developer Villadom to build on a 50-acre parcel of undeveloped land. The town board plans to meet on May 17 to vote revising the town plan to accommodate the project. [Newsday]
