At a zoning board of appeals meeting, dozens of Islip residents tried to torpedo a proposed slaughterhouse by arguing that smells emanating from it would decrease home prices in the neighborhood around it. They also said that it could create other environmental problems. The board is weighing the application from Joseph Rosario who wants to build a 6,000-square-foot slaughterhouse, but needs a zoning variance. Rosario said his business would be “highly regulated” by the state’s agriculture and health departments. The board didn’t vote on the application at the Tuesday meeting and gave Rosario 60 days to submit more materials about traffic impacts and specifications about its heating and cooling system. [Newsday]
