The Brookhaven Town Planning Board has moved ahead with a $25 million affordable housing complex by developer Ralph Fasano in Port Jefferson Station, Newsday reported. Fasano wants to build 77 apartment units and hopes to start the 18-month project in January. Some of the apartment units will be specifically set aside for veterans, though it has yet to be determined how many. At a board meeting, town residents voiced safety concerns if the project gets built, as well as the influx of traffic it could bring. The development will also include a community building and recreational amenities. The $25 million price tag reportedly includes buying the land, building costs and consulting fees. [Newsday]
