Manorhaven officials punt zoning decision amid fears of overdevelopment

The Manorhaven Board of Zoning Appeals will pick up a hearing for a proposed 52-foot-tall building in November, they decided after a heated, standing-room-only meeting with the community, Newsday reported. The project, proposed by New Jersey-based Secatoag 20-26 LLC, would exceed village zoning code height limits. The proposal includes two-mixed-use buildings with retail on the ground floor and nine two-bedroom apartments in each. The applicant argued that it needed variances to make the project economically viable, but opponents believe the project would set a dangerous precedent for overdevelopment in the village. [Newsday]
